Types of Orifice Plates Used in Flow Measurement

BBP Sensors
Orifice plates are one of the most popular devices for the measurement and control of fluid flow. It is frequently used more than any other flow meter. The orifice consists of a thin metal plate with a straight hole drilled in it.  When a fluid passes through an orifice, the flow is often less than the amount calculated. The assumption is that the energy is conserved and the flow distributing through the orifice is...
