Uses of Averaging Pitot Tube

With the advent of averaging pitot tubes, the difficulty of determining the average velocity point has almost been sorted out. An averaging pitot tube is designed with manifold impact and static pressure ports. Besides, it is constructed in such a manner that it extends across the whole pipe diameter.

Averaging pitot tubes cost somewhat extra and offer better accuracy as compared to single port pitot tubes, particularly in cases where the flow is not entirely formed.
