Three(3) different types of flow nozzles are being used to determine a fluid’s flowrate through pipes.
ISA 1932 nozzle
The ISA 1932 Nozzle was developed in 1932 by the International Federation of the National.
Standardizing Associations, which was superseded by ISOin 1946. The ISA 1932 nozzle is commonly used outside of the USA(ASME, 1971)
Long Radius nozzle
a variation of the ISA 1932 nozzle. The long radius nozzle differs from the ISA 1932 nozzle in shape and in the position of the pressure tappings.
a combination type model that has the similar induction area of ISA 1932 and similar outlet cone of venturi tube. This design has a lower pressure loss than a similar nozzle.
