Cavitating venturies are one of the simplest devices to use on a flow line to control the flow rate without using complex valve and measuring systems. It has no moving parts and complex electronic systems. This simplicity increases the reliability of the venturi and makes it a superior element for the military and critical industrial applications. Although cavitating venturis have many advantages and many areas of use, due to the complexity of the physics behind venturi flows, the characteristics of the venturies are mostly investigated experimentally.
