The Universal Type Orifice Plate is designed to be used in an orifice fitting. Line sizes 2”-10” require a
removable Orifice Plate Seal. Depending on the service, these seals are made of Nitrile, TFE, or
stainless steel. Line sizes 12” and above require the seal to be vulcanized to the O.D. of the plate. The
bore geometry of the Universal Type Orifice Plate is the same as the Paddle Type Orifice Plate. Care
must be taken installing Eccentric Bored Plates and Orifice Plates with weep holes, to assure they are
rotated in the correct position. Segmental Orifice are not recommended in Universal Type Orifice Plates.
