A Venturi meter is a flow measurement device, commonly utilized in the water supply industry. A Venturi meter specifically uses a converging section of pipe to increase flow velocity. A corresponding reduction in pressur... More »

A Venturi pump uses the kinetic energy in a fast-moving fluid to move another liquid or semi-liquid substance. These pumps are abundant in sewage treatment plants because they reliably move large volumes of thick, hetero... More »

The water flow though a pipe is measured by using a mechanical flow meter. These work through positive displacement, where the volume of water flowing though in a given amount of time is measured. Domestic areas typicall... More »
