Abstract

The flow distribution within a reduced scale model pipeline to study and determine the best splitting device for a horizontal pipeline through experiments were conducted. In this research, five splitting devices are designed and tested on the model rig. Out of five, only one splitting device has been chosen that achieved the objective the best; to improve airflow to be a homogeneous flow in the pipe, or at least reducing and improving from the roping condition. The process of selecting the best device had been done through qualitative analysis of velocity profile and airflow distribution obtained from Pitot Tube measurements, besides the airflow pattern and behavior through PIV results.
