Questions

Question
How do I hook up my Magnehelic® gage for an air velocity application with a pitot tube?
Answer
In our Application Guides on flow products, we explain very well how to take air velocity readings. The total pressure connection on the pitot tube is connected to one of the high pressure ports on the gage. The other high pressure port is plugged. The static pressure connection on the pitot tube is connected to one of the low pressure ports on the gage. The other low pressure port is plugged.
Question
The gland fitting A-159 is shown as an accessory to the Series 160 Pitot tube. How do you install the fitting past the elbow in the tube?
Answer
The optional mounting gland, model A-159, is designed to slide over any Series 160, 5/16” diameter standard pitot tube. It should be large enough to slide past the elbow while still being small enough to tighten down on the 5/16” diameter shaft.
Question
I have an application where i need to check permanently the velocity in a metal duct (16" diameter) the application is metal cutting (cutting with plasma machine. I am selecting the following items. Series 160S Pitot Tubes and Series DM-1200 DigiMag® Digital Differential Pressure and Air Flow Gage a little dust is generated, could it affect the DM-1200 reading
Answer
The 160S pitot tube is specifically designed for flow measurement of dirty, particulate laden gas or air so a bit of dust should not be an issue for your application.
Question
How do you do traverse readings with a Pitot tube for air velocity and air flow readings?
Answer
Dwyer has a guide on how to calculate air velocity and air flow with Pitot Tubes including traverse readings located on our website at: Air Velocity Measurement
Question
I have a question about the Series 160 Pitot tube. I am wondering whether you can use this as a water flow measurement instead of air flow measurement. Best, Thanks
Answer
Our Series 160 pitot tube is specifically designed to monitor or control air velocity or air flow and not water flow. Our Series DS in-line flow sensors can be used for flow rate sensing of compatible gases and liquids for schedule 40 pipe.
