RE: Distributor

Flow direction?

If left to right then it looks like an injection quill to me.

If right to left then it looks like some sort of sampling point where a small pressure is induced above the fluid pressure to drive the fluid around a closed sample or sensing line.

But give us something to go on here - a small snapshot of a piping drawing tells us about 2% of what's going on.

No data, no P&ID, no idea which flow is going, no idea what connects onto the tee???

RE: Distributor

LI, it appears there is an arrow indicating flow direction.

bzlam21,
More details are helpful.

Appears to be some engineered equipment. What is item #5?

RE: Distributor

Well worth only such a small snapshot it wasn't clear.

Also what is the description of item 5??

However we seem to have another silent OP.

RE: Distributor

Without more details of the mysterious item 5, it's not possible to say.

As drawn it appears to block 90% of the surface area of the 8" pipe, but maybe it has a lot of holes in it or is it sleeve which stops the cold fluid from reaching the wall. But it has no visible supports holding it in place nor any dimensions so a bit of a mystery.

Putting the cold fluid in the middle of the flow will encourage good mixing providing the main fluid flow is turbulent flow or going at >0.5 m/sec I would say.

But your OP said H2 vapour and the drawing now says cold liquid??

A bit more explanation than one or two lines helps everyone.
