|Significance and Use|
4.1ï¿½Flow conditioners are used for the conditioning of the turbulent flow profile of gases or liquids to reduce the ADD (velocity profile distortion) DEL (turbulence), swirl, or irregularities caused by the installation effects of piping elbows, length of pipe, valves, tees, and other such equipment or piping configurations that will affect the reading of flow measurement meters thus inducing measurement errors as a result of the flow profile of the gas or liquid not having a fully developed flow profile at the measurement point.
1.1ï¿½This practice covers flow conditioners that produce a fully developed flow profile for liquid and gas phase fluid flow for circular duct sizes 1- to 60-in. (25.4- to 1525-mm) diameter and Reynolds Number (Re) ranges from transition (100) to 100â€‰000â€‰000. These flow conditioners can be used for any type of flow meter or development of a fully developed flow profile for other uses.
1.2ï¿½The central single-hole configuration that is derived using fundamental screen theory is referenced as the flow conditioner described herein.
1.3ï¿½Piping lengths upstream and downstream of a flow conditioner are considered a critical component of a flow conditioner and constitute the complete flow conditioner system.
1.4ï¿½The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
1.5ï¿½This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.6ï¿½This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
