The VAP3 pitot from Eastern Instruments is an insertion-style pitot that can be installed in nearly any ductwork for extremely accurate air flow measurement in both clean and particulate-laden air. The VAP3 pitot’s plug-resistant design allows for installation in duct work where many other technologies are prone to plugging. The pitots are typically mounted, via welded ports, to the exterior of ductwork, and can be easily removed for routine inspections or for cleaning. For easier, bolt-on installation, an array of pitots can be mounted within a flanged duct section (DSV) that can be bolted directly into existing duct work.
