With the increasing measurement accuracy achievable with today’s flow computers, the importance of accuracy in primary measurement equipment like orifice plates has reached a new level of emphasis.
Frequent inspection of orifice plates is necessary to ensure the plates are in a condition that will ensure a high level of measurement accuracy.
Sensia’s NUFLO™ Model 5030 orifice fitting reduces the time and cost of inspecting and changing orifice plates, and helps ensure that the bore is properly centered in the meter tube.
The single-chamber design makes installing and removing the orifice plate quick and easy by combining the orifice carrier and sealing bar in one assembly. By removing four bolts and a clamping bar, the user can pull the assembly from the fitting, replace the orifice plate and reinsert the assembly into the fitting in a matter of minutes. Additionally, with no flange bolts to remove and no flanges to spread, the risk of fluid loss from the pipeline is eliminated.
