  1. Function: The pitot nipple serves as a connection point or adapter for attaching a pitot tube to a fluid flow measurement system. It allows for the insertion of the pitot tube into the fluid stream to measure parameters such as fluid velocity and pressure.
  2. Design: The Pitt nipple, typically features a threaded or barbed end that facilitates secure attachment to the fluid flow measurement device, such as a pitot tube. It may also include a small bore or channel that allows fluid to flow through the nipple and into the pitot tube for measurement.
  3. Material: Pitot nipples are commonly made from materials that offer durability and corrosion resistance, such as stainless steel, brass, or plastic. This ensures reliable performance and longevity, even in harsh or corrosive fluid environments.
  4. Installation: Installing a pitot nipple involves securely attaching it to the fluid flow measurement device, typically using threaded fittings or hose clamps. Proper installation is essential to ensure a leak-proof connection and accurate measurement of fluid parameters.
  5. Compatibility: Pitot nipples come in various sizes and configurations to accommodate different types of pitot tubes and fluid flow measurement systems. It’s important to select a nipple that is compatible with the specific pitot tube and application requirements.
