Abstract : The patent describes a fluid velocity limit gage for determining whether a particular fluid velocity has been exceeded. The gage may include an aerodynamically shaped element which rests freely upon a support plate. Since a certain fluid velocity will be required to lift the shaped element from the plate a determination can be made that this velocity has been met or exceeded when the shaped element is so lifted. The support plate may be provided with a restraining means for preventing movement of the shaped element in the direction of the fluid velocity so that a positive lifting of the shaped element is required for indicating purposes. A plurality of shaped elements with varying lift actions may be mounted on a series of support plates so as to indicate the fluid velocity within a predetermined range.
