The orifice has t the greatest loss and the venturi the least, as discussed. The orifice and nozzle simulate partially closed valves as in Fig. 6.18b, while the venturi is a very minor loss. When the loss is given as a fraction of the measured pressure drop, the orifice and nozzle have nearly equal losses, as Example 6.21 will illustrate. 3.0 2.5 Thin-plate orifice hm 1.5 Km = Vt2/(2g) 2.0 1.0 Flow nozzle Venturi: 0.5 | v v Fig. 6.43 Nonrecoverable head loss in Bernoulli obstruction meters.
