Default Mass Averaging on meridional slices of a plane

ValorToMe is on a distinguished road
I am simulating a stator blade of a turbine and I am attempting to get pitchwise mass averaged data against span at a sectional plane at the exit of the stator.

I have not been able to separate the plane into pitchwise slices in order to mass average, if this is possible I would be glad to know.

I am using the csavg function to average scalars on a defined cylindrical coordinate system. The goal is to calculate the mass flux for each slice, multiply that by the scalar function, and then normalise by the total mass flux to get an approximate mass flow average.

My problem is that I can't get a meridional average of the radial or axial velocity using the csavg function. Does anyone know how to do this or a better method of pitchwise mass averaging on a plane.

Thank you
