Question
When would an oil filled submerged Area Velocity (Sub AV) sensor be used?
Summary
Oil filled Sub AV sensor application.
Answer
The oil filled Sub AV sensor must be installed in a pipe where the flow is continuous so that the sensor will not leak silicone oil and possibly contaminate the sample. The oil filled Sub AV sensor is recommended in dirty water applications to avoid fouling of the pressure transducer.
