V-Cone vs. Venturi: A Comparison

V-Cone vs. Venturi: A Comparison

The “V” in V-Cone® is often mistaken to mean “Venturi-Cone,” however, this is not the case. The “V” represents the shape of the cone in the meter itself, designed to measure flow via the Bernoulli principle. Both the V-Cone and the Venturi are both differential...
