Venturi meter

A type of flow meter that measures flow rate by determining the pressure drop through a venturi constriction. A venturi is a constriction in a pipe, tube or flume consisting of a tapered inlet, a short straight constricted throat and a gradually tapered outlet; fluid velocity is greater and pressure is lower in the throat area than in the main conduit upstream or downstream of the venturi; it can be used to measure flow rate, or to draw another fluid from a branch into the main fluid stream.
