May 7, 2020 — Vortab Flow Conditioners from The Vortab Company are designed to deliver a uniform, swirl-free flow profile to the pump inlet in as little as six pipe diameters.
The Vortab Company’s product line of process flow conditioners, with their flow profile and anti-swirl tab design, correct flow disturbances to mimic adequate pipe straight run and produce a highly repeatable, symmetrical flow profile.
Swirl reduction and velocity profile correction occur naturally in long lengths of straight pipe due to diffusion, friction and turbulent mixing. The Vortab Flow Conditioner’s anti-swirl and inclined vortex generating profile correction tabs, projecting from the inside pipe surface, generate vortices that accelerate these natural pipe effects to create a uniform, non-swirling, symmetrical flow profile in a much shorter section of pipe.
The designs of the Vortab Elbow (Model VEL) and the Vortab Insertion Sleeve (Model VIS) configurations provide a c solution that supports proper pump installation. They can be made from carbon steel, 316L stainless steel or Hastelloy C-276 and in almost any pipe size. A variety of process connections are also available--ANSI flanges, male NPT threads, butt welded preps or retaining wafers.
