Pitot Tube Flow Meter
Our catalogue contains a variety of Pitot tube pressure meters, each with its own set of features. Pitot tube air flow meters are based on the traditional Prandtl tube, which includes a Pitot tube for total pressure measurement and a sensor for static pressure measurement. Anemometers, which are closely linked to manometers, were invented to measure air flow. Pitot tube air flow meters have an advantage over other techniques of measurement in that they have a relatively tiny aperture above the tube barrier at the most critical distance, allowing for fast readings of air flow. They’re also effective in high-temperature and high-wind conditions.
Pitot Tube For Air Flow Measurement
To obtain the velocity pressure from which air velocity may be calculated, a Pitot tube detects total pressure and static pressure. The tip of the Pitot Tube Air Flow Meter is directed toward the airflow as it is put into the duct.

The tip of the Pitot tube is directed toward the airflow as it is put into the duct. The manometer’s positive port is connected to the total pressure port (Pt), while the negative port is attached to the static pressure port (Ps). After then, the manometer will show velocity pressure, which may be translated to velocity.
A pitot (/ˈpiːtoʊ/ PEE-toh) tube, also known as pitot probe, is a flow measurement device used to measure fluid flow velocity. It is widely used to determine the airspeed of an aircraft, air and gas flow velocities in certain industrial applications
You can calculate the air volume passing past a point in a duct per unit of time by multiplying air velocity by the cross section area of the duct. In most cases, volume flow is measured in cubic feet per minute (CFM).
The average air speed in the duct is determined using an anemometer, a test tool that monitors air velocity. The airflow passing through the duct is then calculated by multiplying the average feet per minute by the duct’s area in square feet. Traverse the exhaust duct’s airflow.
