While pitot sensors are low-accuracy and low-rangeabil-ity detectors, they do have a place in wastewater treatment-related flow measurement. Pitot tubes should be used when the measurement is not critical, the water is reasonably clean, and a low cost measurement is needed. These sensors can be inserted in the pipe without shutdown and can also be removed for periodic cleaning while the pipe is in use. Multiple-opening pitot tubes (see Figure 7.6.8) are less sensitive to flow velocity profile variations than single-opening (see Figure 7.6.9) tubes. In some dirtier applications, purged pitot tubes are also used.
