The Orifice Flanges are widely used in conjunction with orifice meters for measuring the rate of flow of liquids and gases. They are basically the same as standard welding neck and slip-on flanges except for the provision of radial, tapped holes in the flange ring for meter connections and additional bolts to act as jack screws to facilitate separating the flanges for inspection or replacement of the orifice plate. In choosing the type of orifice flange, the considerations affecting the choice of welding neck and slip-on standard flanges apply with equal force.
Designed for flow metering systems. Two of these flanges with bolts and jack screws are called an orifice flange union” and are used in conjunction with an “orifice plate.” The orifice plate is a separate commodity and is not sold as part of the flange assembly. Each flange is provided with a pair of pressure taps for measurement of pressure drop in the flow through the orifice plate. The taps are precisely located with respect to the orifice plate. Orifice flanges may be provided in one of three types of flanges: Welding Neck, Slip-On and Threaded.
