Pitot Tube Selection

  1. Jul 20, 2014 #1
    Hi there,

    I have been in contact with a manufacturer as I require both a pitot tube and a differential pressure transmitter for my process. Both will be used in a small scale process (around 10 l/min).

    I want to ask if it is possible that a flowrate can be too small to generate a large enough differential pressure for some DP meters/transmitters. Is there such a thing as a minimum flowrate for pitot tubes and DP meters, or is there only a maximum allowable flowrate?
