Contour™

CK5 and Z Flow Conditioners

Contour™ CK5 and Z Flow Conditioners maximize orifice meter accuracy while significantly reducing upstream pipe length requirements. This common design fully develops the flow profile and helps to eliminate flow disturbances without creating a significant pressure drop.

Accurate flow metering is possible in a host of line configurations, including multiple elbows in or out of plane, tee intersections, and partially closed or nominally opened valves. Installation, maintenance, and initial capital cost are easy and economical, and the resilient one-piece design ensures a long service life. Standard 316 stainless steel makes these flow conditioners suitable for all applications, including extremely corrosive environments.

Contour™ CK5 Flow Conditioners are designed and manufactured to the exact geometries of the popular K-Lab / Nova design (CPA 50E®) which has achieved broad acceptance within the flow measurement industry. Contour™Z Flow Conditioners include the 32-hole Zanker plate geometry. Contour™ Z Flow Conditioners are only available in flange style.

Canalta Contour FCH™ Flow Conditioner

The Canalta Contour FCH™ Flow Conditioner Housing brings the ease, safety and practicality of inspecting and changing an orifice plate to the flow conditioner. This long-overdue concept allows for regular inspections of the flow conditioner without breaking apart the flow line. The Canalta Contour FCH™ allows the operator to easily perform flow conditioner inspection and maintenance on the same regular schedule as the orifice plate. With this innovative, newly patented design, you can be sure that your flow profile has not been degraded by damage, blockage or residue accumulation.

Available for pipe sizes 2″ through 30″ in all standard schedules, with custom schedules by special order.

Flange-Style Flow Conditioners

Flange-style Flow Conditioners are installed between two raised face or ring-type joint flanges upstream of the orifice plate. Available for pipe sizes 2″ through 30″ in all standard schedules, with custom schedules by special order.

Pin-Style Flow Conditioners

Pin-style Flow Conditioners are line mounted with a set pin in the wall of the upstream pipe. Available for pipe sizes 2″ through 4″ in all standard schedules, with custom schedules by special order.

Contour™ Vane Flow Straighteners

Contour™ Vane Flow Straighteners are available in the traditional 1998 uniform concentric 19-tube bundle configuration. Sized and assembled to AGA 3 / API 14.3 and ISO 5167-1 specification.

Flange-style straightening vanes are installed between two raised face or RTJ flanges upstream of the orifice plate whereas the pin-style are set within the pipe. Available for pipe sizes 2″ through 30″ in all standard schedules, with custom schedules by special order.
