Where a need exists for a rugged, cost effective flowmeter which has a low installation cost and a turndown of not more than 4: The Venturi nozzle has the same upstream isso as the ISA nozzle, but has a divergent section and, therefore, a different location for the downstream pressure tappings, and is described separately. Check out our FAQs. Gas and Liquid installations will differ.

Pipe Flow Measurement – Orifice Plates

For both of these nozzles and for the Venturi nozzle direct calibration experiments have been made, sufficient in number, spread and quality to enable coherent systems of application to be based on their results and coefficients to be given with certain predictable limits of uncertainty.

The Standard is applicable to measurement of flow of any fluid, liquid, vapor, or gas. The relationship between the rate of flow and the differential pressure produced is very well understood and is fully covered by comprehensive national standards.

All other instruments or devices required for the measurement or transmission of the differential 516-73 are known as secondary elements, and in combination are referred to as the secondary devices. Final text received or FDIS registered for formal approval. Orifice plates are still the most widely used type is flowmeter in the world today. This Standard covers the primary devices; secondary devices will be mentioned only occasionally. In addition, the uncertainties are given in the appropriate sections of this Standard for each of these devices, within 517-3 pipe size and Reynolds number limits which are specified.


Process control Here the flowmeter is used to measure the rate of fluid or energy flow to allow the process to be controlled 516-73 so ensure that the end product is of the required quality. This design has a lower pressure loss than a similar nozzle.

It deals with devices for which sufficient calibrations have been made to enable the specification of coherent systems of application and to enable calculations to be made with certain predictable limits of uncertainty.

Flowmetering allows energy costs to be allocated to a particular product, department or other user this usually resulting in a significant reduction in total energy costs. The two types of standard nozzle are fundamentally different and are described separately in ISO The installation of any flowmeter can be justified in one of two ixo This applies equally to gases and liquids e. Configuration shown in above image is for Steam.

In addition, each of the devices can only be used within specified limits of pipe size and Reynolds number. The two types of standard nozzle are fundamentally different and are described separately in ISO In many of today’s industrial processes, it is essential to measure accurately the rate of fluid flow within a system as a whole or in part. This differential pressure is measured via impulse lines by a differential pressure transmitter which converts it into an analogue or digital signal which can be processed to provide a display of the instantaneous rate of flow.

The pressure drop can be measured and correlated with flow rate. This means that orifice plates are very cost effective on larger line sizes.


This design has a lower pressure loss than a similar nozzle. One 5167- the principle advantages of orifice plates manufactured and installed following these standards is that they do not require calibration.

Nozzles and Venturi nozzles. ISO technical report to help oil and gas sector measure flowrate in pipelines. The term pipe flow rate is often used to refer to flow rate for any closed conduit flow under pressure. The closed conduit is often circular, but may also be square 517-3 rectangular, such as a heating duct. Also square-edged orifice plates and nozzles outside the scope of BS In other words, you cannot manage what you cannot measure and nowhere is that more true than in the measurement of flow.

The term primary device also includes the pressure taps and the associated upstream and downstream piping. The installation of any flowmeter can be justified in one of two ways:.

Pipe Flow Measurement – Orifice plates – ISO , BS and ASME MFC-3M –

They offer significant cost benefits over other types of flowmeter, especially in larger line sizes, and have proved to be rugged, effective and reliable over many years. Geometry and method of use for conical entrance orifice plates, quarter circle orifice plates 51677-3 eccentric orifices plates.

The following primary devices are covered in this Standard: Remark s of the Author Why use Orifice plates? The other major category of flow is open channel flow, which occurs when there is a free liquid surface open to atmospheric pressure.
