The PicoFlow can be installed in metallic ducts and pipelines.
It should be installed as far as possible away from curves and other fittings such as valves and slides. The distance between the sensor rod and fittings in the duct should be at least three times the duct diameter in every flow direction.
Non-metallic ducts must be cased with a metal sleeve, a metal foil or a tight-mesh metal grille over a length of at least five times the duct diameter.
After deciding the installation location, drill a hole in the duct wall where the supplied weld-on socket can be welded perpendicular to the pipe. Then screw the sensor rod into the socket using the screw-in thread.
