Appendix B.

Hand Calculation Method for Orifice Design

Abstract
This appendix explains how to perform the calculations for orifice plate design by hand. For manual look-up of the orifice coefficient, S (given beta) or the diameter ratio, beta (given S), the following eight figures are provided: Figure B-1 Figure B-2 Figure B-3 Figure B-4 Figure B-5 Figure B-6 Flange Taps - 6 Inch Pipe Size (6.056 in.); S vs. Beta for Different RD Values (Based on Data from ISO 5167) Flange Taps; Pipe Size Corrections for S Values (Based on Data from ISO 5167) Radius Taps; S vs. Beta for Different R D Values (Based on Data from ISO 5167) Corner Taps; S vs. Beta for Different R D Values (Based on Data from ISO 5167) Pipe Taps; S vs. Beta for Different RD Values (Based on Data from ISO 5167) ASME Small Bore with Flange Taps; S vs. Beta for Different RD Values—1 in. to 1-1/2 in.

Orifice calculation sheets have been prepared for guidance through the orifice calculation steps. Calculation sheets filled in with appropriate examples are attached. The four orifice calculation sheets are as follows: • • • • LIQUID, square-edge orifice, Form ICM-EF-59B (Figure B-9) LIQUID, quadrant-edge orifice, Form ICM-EF-59C (Figure B-10) GAS, square-edge orifice, Form ICM-EF-59D (Figure B-11) VAPOR/STEAM, square-edge orifice, Form ICM-EF-59E (Figure B-12)

Note that in these calculation sheets, the term "sharp edge" is used instead of "square-edge." Results of the hand calculations agree closely with the computer program ORIFICE. The two types of calculations that can be performed are orifice sizing and orifice reranging, except for quadrant-edge.
