Description

The Pitot tube enables the total pressure in a fluid flow to be measured. The tube consists of a small tube with a bend, the tube is positioned in the flow such that the opening is facing the direction of flow. By rotating the tube in the flow field, the direction and magnitude of the velocity can be determined.

On the small version, the Pitot tube is enclosed in a protective sleeve that prevents damage to the tube.

Due to the smaller measuring tube, this version is well suited to boundary layer experiments.

If the Pitot tube is connected to a manometer, the pressure measured can be read directly on the manometer. To indicate the pressure, the following units are optionally available: inclined tube manometer included in HM 170, differential pressure manometer HM 170.53, electronic pressure measurement HM 170.55 or system for data acquisition HM 170.60.
