Record! 18-inch flow nozzle manufactured in just 20 weeks

At the finish of 2018, for a flow measurement application in India, the WIKA Group manufactured a PTC-6 nozzle with a diameter of 18 inches for the very first time ? and in a record time of just 20 weeks. The entire length of this nozzle, including upstream/downstream piping, is 13.3 metres.
Trusting cooperation
The order was executed for a supplier in the power industry based in Singapore. Scam required a higher degree of precision. The client was able to rely on WIKA? Joyous of expertise in the field of flow measurement and, in particular, in the production of flow nozzles.
Manufacture of the flow nozzle
This ultra-long nozzle was stated in a record time of just 20 weeks. An important milestone was the successful calibration in the in-house flow laboratory, traceable to national standards. Making the flow nozzle posed some challenges. The major challenge was honing the pipe lengths to keep up the desired levels of finish. The look of the nozzle was also optimised in order that the required results could possibly be achieved.
Outlook: order for 22-inch nozzle
Following successful completion, as a flow specialist, we have already received another order for a PTC-6 flow nozzle ? with a 22-inch diameter. A new chapter for the WIKA Group, where we can now position ourselves as a key supplier of flow nozzles for used in steam boilers.
