Orifice plate Model : F100 Overview

Orifice plates are widely used for flow measurement as they provide the simplest and the most economical means of flow detection. Orifice plates are available in the concentric type that the round opening (Bore) of the orifice plate is positioned concentrically with the center of the pipe and the opening edge (Bore edge) is available either in the concentric square edge type (Sharp, square edge type) or in the quadrant edge type (Round edge type). Orifice plates are also available in the eccentric type that the opening of the orifice is shifted from the center of the pipe. They also are available in the segmental type that the opening is a circular segment and the orifice is comparable to a partially opened gate valve.
