Plant, process and instrumentation engineers who want to learn more about flow conditioning devices to improve the performance, accuracy and repeatability of flowmeters and other flow-profile, critical-process equipment will be interested in a new brochure from the Vortab Company, available from AMS.

A pipe straight-run is required in flowmeter and pump installations to overcome the swirl, asymmetrical flow profiles and otherwise unrepeatable flow that are created by elbows, pipe expanders or reducers, valves, dampeners and other disrupters in the process pipe. In process piping systems, finding or adding a suitable amount of straight-run to accommodate the flowmeters, pumps and other critical components is often impractical or unfeasible, either technically, economically or both. Flow conditioners, sometimes referred to as flow straighteners, are a practical and cost-effective engineering solution to overcome this lack of available straight-run.

The Vortab Company manufactures flow conditioners that use proven principles of operation combining proven swirl-removal technology with the patented Vortab flow-conditioning process to achieve the most repeatable and efficient flow profile available. The various inline and insertion-style Vortab flow conditioner products consist of a short section of swirl-reduction tabs combined with multiple arrays of profile-conditioning tabs.  This design produces rapid cross-stream mixing, minimises swirl and velocity profile distortions and produces a highly repeatable flow profile that is measurable across a broad flow range.
