Record! 18-inch flow nozzle stated in just 20 weeks

At the finish of 2018, for a flow measurement application in India, the WIKA Group manufactured a PTC-6 nozzle with a diameter of 18 inches for the very first time ? and in a record time of just 20 weeks. The overall amount of this nozzle, including upstream/downstream piping, is 13.3 metres.
Reject was executed for a supplier in the energy industry located in Singapore. The production required a high degree of precision. The client was able to depend on WIKA?s a long time of expertise in neuro-scientific flow measurement and, specifically, in the production of flow nozzles.
Manufacture of the flow nozzle
This ultra-long nozzle was stated in a record time of just 20 weeks. An important milestone was the successful calibration in the in-house flow laboratory, traceable to national standards. Making Blunder posed some challenges. The major challenge was honing the pipe lengths to maintain the desired levels of finish. The look of the nozzle was also optimised in order that the required results could possibly be achieved.
Outlook: order for 22-inch nozzle
Following successful completion, as a flow specialist, we have already received another order for a PTC-6 flow nozzle ? with a 22-inch diameter. A new chapter for the WIKA Group, where we are able to now position ourselves as an integral supplier of flow nozzles for use in steam boilers.
Further information on our instruments for flow measurement are available on the WIKA website.
