Long Radius Low Beta Type Nozzle

DESCRIPTION

FEPL's flow nozzle is a flow measurement device which used for measurement of high velocity flow, such as high pressure steam. It can also be used with other fluids such as water, air or other gases.

The typical profile of this device offers a smooth passage to the fluid which leads to the lesser pressure drop and thus more efficiency.

The rounded profile is particularly useful when the steam contains particles which damage the edges of the flow element which doesn't happen due to the smooth profile. Thus the product life is increased.

SALIENT FEATURES

  • Best suitable for measurement of high pressure high temperature high velocity steam measurement.
  • Smooth profile and rigid structure makes the assembly extremely stable.
  • Free from leakage (when provided in weldin type assembly).
  • Zero maintenance since no moving parts.
  • Repeatability: 0.3%
  • Less straight lengths requirement.

 

DESIGN & MANUFACTURING STANDARD

  • ISO-5167 part III
  • ASME PTC-19.5
  • ASME PTC-6

MATERIALS

Selection based on temperature and process conditions.
Typically used materials are:

  • Element: SA.182 F316/ SA182 F11 / SA182 F22 / SA182 F91
  • Pipe: SA.106Gr. B / SA335 P11 / SA335 P22 / SA.335P91
  • Flange material: SA105 / SA182F11 / SA182F22 / SA182 F91

CLASSIFICATION

The flow nozzle can be classified as follows

BASED ON ELEMENT

  • ŸLong Radius High Beta Ÿ
  • Long Radius Low beta Ÿ
  • ISA 1932

ŸBASED ON MOUNTING

  • Welding type Ÿ
  • Flanged type Ÿ
  • Holding ring type 

BASED IN APPLICATIONS

  • ŸUsed in high accuracy area of turbine steam flow measurement Flanged type with throat tap nozzle (as per PTC-6 standard) with accuracy in a tune of 0.25%.

LONG RADIUS HIGH BETA TYPE NOZZLE

This type of nozzle uses an elliptical profile. The quarter portion of the ellipse is used to form the nozzle profile. This is a commonly used nozzle type with an uncertainty of 2% irrespective of beta ratio. This can be offered in all the 03 mounting classifications.

  • Size limits: 50 mm to 630 mm
  • Beta Ratio: 0.2 to 0.8
  • Reynold's Number: 10^4 to 10^7
  • Pressure tapping: D – D/2

A Welding type assembly typically with a pipe length 750 mm on upstream side and 250 mm on downstream side. Flanged type assembly can be supplied with or without spool piece as per requirement

LONG RADIUS LOW BETA TYPE NOZZLE

This type of nozzle also uses a quarter elliptical profiles. This type of nozzle is used for performance testing of turbines, as per PTC standard. When supplied with the typical assembly as per PTC-6, uncertainty is 0.25%.

  • Size limits: 50 mm to 630 mm
  • Beta Ratio: 0.2 to 0.5
  • Reynold's Number: 104 to 107
  • Pressure tapping: Upstream tap @ D
  • Downstream tap Throat tap (through element)
