What Is a Venturi Meter?


A Venturi metre is a tool used to measure the flow through a pipeline. The venturi metre consists of two conical pipes that are connected to limit the energy losses. Pressure taps are located upstream and downstream of the venturi metre, immediately outside the variable diameter areas, to measure the losses produced through the metre due to flow separation.
