ORIFICE - FOR YOUR FLOW MEASUREMENT PROBLEMS Information


Orifice Plate
Orifice Plate is the heart of the Orifice Meter. It restricts the flow and develops the Differential Pressure which is proportional to the square of the flow rate. The flow measuring accuracy entirely depends upon the quality of Orifice plate, its installation and maintains. When measuring wet gas or saturated steam a weep hole is drilled in a concentrically bored orifice plate. This is a small hole drilled on the orifice plate such that its location is exactly on ID of the main pipe. The Orifice plates are manufactured as per ISA / AGA/ API / ANSI standards and in various materials such as SS304 /SS316 / SS316L /Hestoly C / Monel / PTFE coated. Various bores are used for various applications. Orifice Plate is categories in two types :- Paddle Type & Universal Palate.

Paddle Type Orifice Plate


This plate is sandwiched between two Orifice Flanges. Tag Plate of orifice plate projects out from Orifice flanges and it indicates the existence of Orifice plate. Details such as Tag NO /Orifice ID / Pipe ID / Plate Material are stamped on one side of the tag plate which faces upstream side of the pipe line. Outside diameter of the orifice plate equals to PCD-1 Bolt Dia. This ensures the concentricity with the main pipe line. The other method to maintain the concentricity is by using sleeves on the bolts or by providing dowel pins on the Orifice Flanges.

Universal Orifice Plate


This is a circular plate designed to fit in the Orifice fittings / Plate holders / carrier rings / Ring Type Joints(RTJ).

Features
Despite Various Advances In Flow Measurement, Orifice Assembly Remains One Of The Most Used Flow Element.
This Is Because Of Accuracy Within +/- 1% Proven Design First Principle Device - Which Never Fails Suitable For Almost All Types Of Fluids Very Nominal Cost Compared To Other Flow Elements Robust & Simple Design Zero Maintenance Suitable For All Pipe Sizes From 1/2 To 36 Proven Solution For Flow Measurement Because Of Proven Data Available, No Need Of Frequent Calibration Like Other Element

Different Types Of Orifice Plates And Their Applications


A Paddle Type Orifice Plate 1) Cocentric Beveled Bore
Application : This Most Common Bore Used In The Industries. This Is The Only Type Generally Accepted For Use In Custody Transfer Measurement, Since Adequate Data Is Not Available For Other Bores. Used Primarily For Clean Homogeneous Liquids, Gases, Non Viscous Fluids. The Bevel Is Matched At 45 Angle To The Desired Throat Thickness.

2) Restriction Bore
Application : This Type Is Not Used For Flow Measurement But For Dropping The Pressure Considerably And Reducing The Flow Accordingly. The Bore Is Not Beveled But Kept Straight. The Beta Ratio Has No Limit As Accuracy Is Not The Goal

3) Eccentric Bore

Application : Used For Measurement Of Flow For Fluids Containing Solids And Slurries. It Is Also Used For Vapors And Gases Where Condensation Is Present. The Eccentric Bore Is Offset To Where The Bore Edge Is Inscribed In A Circle That Is 98% The Line Id.

4) Segmenta Bore
Application : The Segmental Bore Is Located In The Same Way That The Eccentric Bore Is. This Type Is Used Primarily For Slurries Or Extreamly Dirty Gases Wher The Flow May Contain Impurities Heavier Than The Fluid.

5) Quadrant Bore

Application :

Used For High Viscous Fluids Such As Heavy Cruid, Syrups

And

Slurries. It Is Always Recommended For Flow Where Reynolds Number Is Less Than 10,000.The Inlet Is Quarter Of A Circle And The Plate Thickness Must Be At Least Radius Of The Inlet.

6) Ring Type Joint Integral


Application : These Are Available In Oval Or Octal Shapes. Orifice Plate Is A Part Of RTJ Gasket.
