Developed from aerospace technology, the Verabar averaging pitot flow sensor provides unsurpassed accuracy and reliability.
V100 and V110
The V100 is our most economical Sensor.
Mounted through a simple tube fitting, it is used most commonly on
air and water utility pipes with lower fluid velocities. The
V110 includes support on the opposite wall of the pipe.
The V150 is our best-valued sensor. This sensor is mounted
through a patented spring-loaded packing gland. It can handle
greater fluid velocities than the V100 and can be resealed hundreds of
times. The V150 does not require opposite end support and is ideal
for steam service.
Developed from aerospace technology, the Verabar averaging pitot flow sensor provides unsurpassed accuracy and reliability. With its solid one piece construction and bullet shape, the Verabar makes flow measurement clog-free and precise. The unique sensor shape reduces drag and flow induced vibration. And the location of the low pressure ports eliminates the potential for clogging and improves signal stability.
How the Verabar Works
The Verabar senses the natural Averaged Pressures created by the velocity profile of the fluid. When the fluid impacts the sensor, it creates a high pressure zone, greater than the pipe static pressure, in front of the sensor.
As the fluid moves past the sensor, it accelerates and a low pressure zone is created to the sides and rear of the sensor. Alternate vortices are shed as the fluid separates from the sensor and a partial vacuum is formed at the rear of the sensor.
Multiple ports are positioned in the high and low pressure zones and an averaged differential pressure is produced.
