Vortab flow conditioner products

Wednesday, 06 February, 2013 | Supplied by: AMS Instrumentation & Calibration Pty Ltd



The Vortab Company manufactures flow conditioners that combine swirl-removal technology with the Vortab flow conditioning process to achieve a repeatable and efficient flow profile.

The company’s various inline and insertion-style 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.

The products are specified for use with and successfully applied with a variety of flow meter technologies including: differential pressure, turbine, vortex shedding, ultrasonic, thermal and magnetic flow meter technologies. The flow conditioners ensure flow instrumentation accuracy and repeatable performance for improved process control. 

The flow conditioners feature a very low-pressure loss design. Non-recoverable pressure loss can reduce maximum flow capability in process lines, creating process inefficiencies and requiring greater energy expenditures to move process liquids and gases. Perforated plates, tube bundles, screens and other flow conditioning technologies are said to produce a much greater pressure loss than the Vortab flow conditioners.

The company’s technology provides good performance with little pressure loss and swirl-free, repeatable, conditioned flow profiles. This tab-type technology is suitable for use with critical process equipment including flow meter installations, pumps, compressors, control valves and others. The open tab design is non-fouling and will not trap dirt or be clogged by debris in the flow stream.

The flow conditioners are available with carbon steel, 316 stainless steel or Hastelloy C-276 construction and with several process connections - ANSI flanges, male NPT threads, butt-welded preps or retaining wafers. Custom configurations are also available.
