KAPT Pitot Tube
KA Sensors KAPT Pitot Tube

A Pitot Tube is used to measure a cars speed relative to the surrounding air.  The assembly is made up of a pair of concentric tubes.  The ellipsoidal nose cone at the tip has a small aperture in the end connected to the inner tube, whilst an annular ring of holes on the outer tube senses the static/surrounding air pressure.  By measuring the difference between the air pressure of the inner and outer tubes (see the KA Sensors KAP Differential Pressure Sensor), the speed of the vehicle can be sensed, measured and calculated.  Whilst a standard sized KAPT is available, a fully bespoke custom service is also available.  See the separate datasheet (KAP) for details of the Differential Pressure Sensor (KAP).

Typical applications include:  Air Speed Aerodynamics
