Application

To ensure an optimum combustion process in a coal-fired power plant, the amount of air flowing in the pipes leading to the furnace must be carefully monitored. A Venturi section of the air pipe is a defined constriction in which the pressure drops a few millibars proportional to flow rate. Differential pressure transmitter measures the pressure drop across the measuring section very accurately and calculates the air flow rate.
