Pitot Testing for Master/ Production and Large Flow Meters
M.E. Simpson Co., Inc. employs the use of a Polcon® Pitot Rod to accurately measure velocity of water flowing in a pipe, thereby determining the accuracy of a flow meter at a single flow or over a broad range of flows. This equipment can be used to monitor flows for testing meters up to 108 inches. This procedure consists of placing an insertion Pitot tube into the pipe and measuring the velocity at equidistant points over the cross section. From this, a velocity profile is generated and used to determine the average velocity through the pipe, and the flow-rate through the pipe.
