Description

The Pitot Tube, also known as a Pressure Measuring Tube, enables the  total pressure in a fluid flow to be measured. The unit consists of a small  tube that is positioned in the flow such that the opening is facing the  flow. By positioning the tube in the flow field, the direction and  magnitude of the velocity can be determined. The Pitot tube is  connected to a manometer; the pressure measured can be read directly  on the manometer.
