TORBAR Averaging Pitot Tube

Multiport Self-averaging Flowmeter

The ABB TORBAR is a multiport self-averaging flow meter with a design based on the classical pitot tube concept of fluid flow measurement. Since its design and launch in 1985, thousands of TORBAR flowmeters have been installed into a wide variety of industries world wide.

TORBAR is suitable for gases, liquids and steam. Some of the many typical applications include water, natural gas, flue gas, nitrogen, combustion gases, ventilation air, sea water, cooling water, crude oil, saturated and superheated steam. Possible pipe sizes range from 15 mm (½ in.) up to 8 metres.
