- Qmass = ρ · Q. Where: Q = volumetric flow rate (m3/s, in3/s) Qmass = Mass flowrate (kg/s, lbs/s) A1 = area = Π · r2 (mm2, in2) A2 = area = Π · r2 (mm2, in2) r1 = radius inlet at A1 (mm, in) r2 = radius inlet at A2 (mm, in)

### What is Venturi diameter?

This type of a venturi meter is generally rough cast with a pipe diameter range of 4.0–48.0 in. The throat diameter may vary quite a bit, but the ratio of the throat diameter to the main pipe diameter (d/D), also known as the beta ratio, represented by the symbol β, should range between 0.30 and 0.75.

**What is the equal diameter of the throat in a Venturi meter?**

Cylindrical Throat: Throat consists of the minimum venturemeter diameter. In the throat section, the velocity is maximum and pressure is minimum. Normally, throat diameter = 1/3 to 1/4th of inlet pipe diameter. Diverging Conical section: At this section of venturimeter, the tube diameter gradually increases.

**How long is a Venturi?**

Venturi tubes are available in sizes up to 72” and can pass 25 to 50% more flow than an orifice with the same pressure drop.

## How does a Venturi measure flow?

A venturi works by measuring the difference in pressure at two different locations. The pressure difference is created by reducing the diameter of the pipe causing the fluid to flow faster. The fast moving fluid has a lower pressure than the slower fluid in the larger section of the venturi.

### What size Venturi do I need?

The formula suggests a main venturi size is acceptable for a range of . 7 to . 9 of the throttle bore. This implies main venturi diameters from 28mm through 36mm are recommended for 40mm throttle bores with the mid-point main venturi size of 32mm.

**What is the relationship between Orificemeter diameter and pipe diameter?**

The diameter of the orifice may vary from 0.2 to 0.85 times the pipe diameter, but generally the orifice diameter is kept as 0.5 times the pipe diameter. Two pressure taps are provided, one on upstream side of the orifice plate, and the other on the downstream side of the orifice plate.

**How accurate is a Venturi meter?**

Note that by default, Venturi flow meters offer an accuracy of around ±1% of the discharge coefficient. Optimum calibration allows an even greater accuracy of up to ±0.25%. Venturi nozzle flow rate measurement systems are marginally more expensive than orifice-style flow meter systems.

## What does a Venturi measure?

The Venturi measures a fluid’s flowrate by reducing the cross sectional flow area in the flow path and generating a pressure difference.

### How accurate are Venturi meters?

**What is the Venturi coefficient?**

The discharge coefficient of the Orifice plate (Cd) is the ratio of the actual flow to theoretical flow. and is applied to theoretical flow equations to obtain actual flow. The discharge coefficient, otherwise. known as the Venturi meter coefficient, usually has a value between 0.92 and 0.99.
