Ellipse AHS

Ellipse AHS

The Ellipse Model AHS annular hot tap, steam flow device is a multi-ported, self-averaging differential pressure flow element. Its innovative elliptical shape provides the lowest permanent pressure loss in the industry. The Ellipse flow meter is designed with a series of ports facing the upstream velocity pressures and flow sensing ports strategically located ahead of the trailing edge flow separation.


  • Patented elliptical design outperforms traditional devices
  • Turndown Ratio: 17:1; no vacuum effects
  • No moving parts equals long, trouble-free service life
  • True static pressure measurement rather than a calculated value
  • Overcomes loss of accuracy caused by fluid separation at the sensor body


  • Single point pipe entry for DP, temperature and static pressure
  • No dampening software required
  • Lowest pressure loss in industry (typically 3% of DP in a 12" line) due to its patented aerodynamic profile
  • NIST traceable calibration: Optional independent labs
