Orifice Plate Flow Meter Piping Requirements
Improper installation of Orifice Plate Flow Meters will cause errors in flow readings.
This document is written to address Orifice Plate type flow meter piping. There are numerous types of flow meters that all have different requirements for piping installation. The designer should always consult the Instrument Engineer or Manufactures literature on final installation requirements for any Flow Meter. With that being said; there are still some practical design applications within this document that could apply to many flow meter types.
