A Pitot Tube is used to measure the local velocity at a given point in the flow stream. A Pitot
tube of standard design made of copper/SS is supplied and is fixed below vernier scale. The
vernier scale is capable to measure the position of Pitot Tube in transparent section. The
pipe has a flow control valve to regulate the flow. An differential water manometer is
provided to determine the velocity head. Present set-up is self-contained water re-circulating
unit, provided with a sump tank and a centrifugal pump etc. Flow control valve and by-pass
valve are fitted in water line to conduct the experiment on different flow rates. Flow rate of
water is measured with the help of measuring tank and stop watch.
