MetadataThis section provides information about 'RDS418364'.

DefinitionA <VOLUME FLOW MEASURING ELEMENT - ORIFICE PLATE> is a <VOLUME FLOW MEASURING ELEMENT - DIFFERENTIAL PRESSURE> that is a plate with a hole through it, placed in the flow; it constricts the flow, and measuring the pressure differential across the constriction gives the flow rate. It is basically a crude form of Venturi meter, but with higher energy losses. There are three type of orifice: concentric, eccentric, and segmental
ISO number4597
NoteBy measuring the difference in fluid pressure between the normal pipe section and at the vena contracta (just after the orifice), we can find the velocity of the fluid flow by applying Bernoulli's equation.
