WW II German Aircraft Förderdüse – VENTURI TUBE Fl. 23402 – Ju52 DFS230 – NICE!


Out of stock

Categories: ,


You are bidding on a SUPERB example of a late-war WW2 German Luftwaffe Förderdüse (Pitot Tube), Fl. 23402, as used on various Bomber, Transport, and Glider aircraft! 


 This item was located on outer port fuselage and producing the vacuum to operate gyroscopic instruments (turn/bank, directional gyro and artificial horizon).  It is mounted on the fuselage, parallel with the longitudinal axis of the aircraft. As the aircraft moves through the air, suction is created in the venturi throat.  Since the venturi throat is connected by a tube to the gyro instrument case, air is sucked out of the instrument, causing air to enter an inlet port and strike the gyro rotor, which then spins rapidly and activates the instrument. 


Made of aluminum by Askania, this item is in EXCELLENT unused condition.  There are some very slight scratches due to the age, but there are NO breaks or damage!  The data label is 100% complete, clearly indicating “Förderdüse Ldü 40”.  Also feature a NICE Luftwaffe “BA” inspection stamp.  Some normal marks for being 70+ years old, but otherwise a BEAUTIFUL example.  I have indicated a similar example on a Ju52 in the last photos.  A FANTASTIC addition to any aircraft collection, display, or restoration project!


Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

——————- TERMS OF SALE —————–

Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. I will describe each auction to the best of my knowledge and take as many photos necessary to ensure you are pleased upon receiving your item. All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase.


——————- ABOUT ME —————–

Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
