Figure 6.37 uses axial flow through a narrow annulus to effect laminar flow. The theory again predicts Q p, as in Eq. (6.92). However, the flow is very sensitive to passage size; for example, halving the annulus clearance increases p more than eight Self-sealing pressure measurement connection O-ring-sealed pressure connection Sintered metallic filter Electrical connector O-ring Platinum resistance thermometer Piston-centering seat Microprocessor Flange connection Annular laminarflow path defined by piston and cylinder | v v Fig. 6.37 A complete flowmeter system using a laminar-flow element (in this case a narrow annulus).
