Differential pressure (DP) is one of the most used and proven technologies for flow measurement. With averaging pitot tube (APT) technology, the impact pressure is sensed on the front of the device as the flow initially approaches the obstruction or bluff body which creates the pressure difference. For the most accurate measurement possible, it is […]
