  • Venturi Flow Characteristics

    The principle in Venturi piping is based on the Bernoulli’s equation. The different pressure between inside of the venturi meter is created by reducing the cross-sectional area of the flow. This pressure will be converted to energy, as a velocity. We can observe the difference of pressure measured by using a different U-tube manometer (A-D). The pressure difference allows to determine the rate of fluid or discharging flow through the pipe line. Since the inlet venturi is larger than throat…
