What are orifice flanges?

Orifice flanges are essential components in various industrial piping systems, particularly in flow measurement applications. They are designed to measure the flow rate of liquids and gases through a pipe. The orifice flange assembly consists of two flanges with an orifice plate sandwiched between them. This setup creates a restriction in the flow, causing a pressure drop, which can be measured to determine the flow rate.

Key features of orifice flanges

Measurement Accuracy: Orifice flanges provide precise and reliable measurements of flow rates. The pressure differential created by the orifice plate is directly proportional to the flow rate, allowing for accurate calculations.

Ease of Maintenance: These flanges are designed for easy installation and removal of the orifice plate, facilitating routine maintenance and inspection.

Compatibility: Orifice flanges are compatible with various piping systems and can be used with a wide range of materials, making them versatile for different industrial applications.

Design Standards: Orifice flanges are manufactured according to strict industry standards, ensuring their performance and reliability in high-pressure environments.
