What is Venturi tube ?

Venturi Tube is a low pressure drop metering device.  It offers constant accuracy, low susceptibility to erosion, high-pressure recovery, and installation at any angle from horizontal to vertical. Corrosion-resistant and virtually maintenance-free, this measurement product performs in a wide variety of applications that include air, water, vapor, steam, gas, chemical substances, sludge and slurry applications.

The classical Venturi Tube is made up of a entrance cylinder of the same diameter as the pipe connected to a conical convergent section, a cylindrical throat, and a conical divergent section.

The high pressure taps are located on the middle of inlet  section and the low pressure taps are located at the middle of the throat section. A piezometer ring is sometimes used for differential pressure measurement. This consists of several holes in the plane of the tap locations. Each set of holes is connected together in an annular slot to give an average pressure.
