This paper presents experimental results on friction factor of gaseous flow in a PEEK micro-tube with relative surface roughness of 0.04 %. The experiments were performed for nitrogen gas flow through the micro-tube with 514.4 μm in diameter and 50 mm in length. Three pressure taps holes with 5 mm interval were drilled and the local pressures were measured. Friction factor is obtained from the measured pressure differences. The experiments were conducted for turbulent flow region. The friction factor obtained by the present study are compared with those in available literature and also numerical results. The friction factor obtained is slightly higher than the value of Blasius formula.
