Model Summary

The VORTAB® VMR Meter Run flow conditioner provides a low pressure loss solution to flow profile irregularities caused by elbows, valves, blowers, compressors and other disruptions that commonly occur in piping and duct runs.

The VSR Meter Run configuration is available for those applications that require lengths shorter than the VMR lengths.
