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 measurement can be read directly on the manometer.
