Vacuum Powered Instruments - The Facts

  • Venturi sizes are measured in inches
  • This refers to the amount of suction measured in inches of mercury the venturi develops at 120 mph, not to the physical dimensions
  • The faster you fly the more suction is developed
  • Venturis should be mounted in the slipstream away from disturbed air
  • If you are not sure where this is on your aeroplane, look for inspiration from similar types
  • Connect with soft plastic hose
  • Avoid constrictive bends
  • An intake filter will prolong instrument life
  • Filters will block with use and so require inspection
  • Venturi powered gyros may not be effective until some time after take-off
  • Venturi systems are not ideal for IFR flight because they can ice up
  • A suction gauge will help to monitor the health of the system, but is not mandatory for VFR flight
  • A 2" venturi will power a turn and bank indicator only
  • A 4" venturi will power one vacuum horizon or a directional gyro
  • A 9" venturi will power a horizon, a turn and bank and a directional gyro, although convention says that if you have a vacuum horizon, an electric turn co-ordinator is the usual combination
Venturi 9"
