Description

The Pitot tube is a primary measuring instrument for the measurement of velocity in pipelines and tubes. The measuring principle of the Pitot tube is applied especially when the temperature of the medium that is being measured is very high and when it concerns very low velocities.

Applications

  • velocity measurement in wind tunnels
  • measurement of quantity of gas/ liquid through a pipeline
  • control of air treatment installations
  • control of draft in chimneys control of filthiness of filters velocity measurement during flue gas sampling in chimneys
  • measurement of the speed of boats, planes and trains

A pressure difference meter is connected to the hose nipples of the Pitot tube. The choice of the meter depends on the accuracy required and the further processing of the measuring signal. ACIN instrumenten has a wide range of pressure difference meters, for example the Setra 267, and can give advice about which meter is appropriate for your application.
