Orifice Sizing

Given;
Differential pressure (∆p) = 1250 mm H2O =12.258 kPa
Volumetric flow at base temperature (qv) = 2664 N m3/hr.
Specific Gravity (S.G.) = 0.277
Inlet Pressure

= 4.863 kg/cm2 (a) = 476.89 kPa

Base Pressure = 1.033 kg/cm2 (a) = 101.302 kPa
Viscosity (µ) = 0.012 cP = 0.000012 Pa.s
Compressibility factor (Z) = 1.001
Temperature at flow condition (t) = 111 Deg.C = 384.15 K
Temperature at base condition (T) = 0 Deg.C

=273.15 K

Pipe size = 4”
∴ Inside pipe diameter (D) = 102.26 mm
Fluid = Gas
