FLOW STRAIGHTENER

FOR VORTEX FLOW METERS

DESCRIPTION
The optional flow straightener accessory for ONICON
F-2000 Series Vortex Flow Meters is a wafer-style flow
conditioner that is designed to be installed between two
ANSI Class 300 flanges (provided by installer) that are
located a specified distance upstream of the flow meter.
Use of a flow straightener significantly reduces the
upstream straight pipe length requirement for ONICON
Vortex Flow Meters.
The size of the straightener should always match the
meter size (as opposed to the original pipe size).
The flow straightener is made of 304/A 351 CF8
Stainless Steel.
