What are the different types of orifice plates and their uses ?


The different types of orifice plates are :
•    Concentric.
•    Segmental.
•    Eccentric.
•    Quadrant Edge.


Concentric :
The concentric orifice plate is used for ideal liquid as well as gases and steam service. This orifice plate  beta  ratio fall between of 0.15 to 0.75 for liquids and 0.20 to 0.70 for gases, and steam. Best results occur between value of 0.4 and 0.6. beta ratio means ratio of the orifice bore to the internal pipe diameters.
Concentric Orifice

(45º beveled edges are often used to minimize friction resistance to flowing fluid )

Eccentric :
The eccentric orifice plate has a hole eccentric. Use full for measuring containing solids, oil containing water and wet steam. Eccentric plates can use either flange or vena contracta taps, but the tap must be at 180º or 90º to the eccentric opening.
Eccentric Orifice
Eccentric orifices have the bore offset from center to minimize problems in services of solids-containing materials.

Segmental :
The segmental orifice place has the hole in the form segment of a circle. This is used for colloidal and slurry flow measurement. For best accuracy, the tap location should be 180º from the center of tangency.
Segmental Orifice
Segmental orifices provide another version of plates useful for solids containing materials.

Quadrant Edge :

It common use in Europe and are particularly useful for pipe sizes less than 2 inchs.
Quadrant Edge Orifice
Quadrant edge orifices produce a relatively constant coefficient   of discharge   for  services   with  low Reynolds numbers  in the range from 100,000 down to 5,000.
