Different types of orifice plates

Introduction Orifice plates are mainly used for flow measurements. The orifice consists of a flat plate with a hole drilled in it. When a fluid passesthrough an orifice, the discharge is often considerably less than the amount calculated on the assumption that the energy is conserved and that the flow through the orifice is uniform and parallel.There are different types of orifice plates used for different fluids/process.  This reduction in flow is normally due to a contraction of the stream which takes place …

Advantages and Disadvantages of Orifice and Venturi meter

Orifice and venturi meter: Orifice and venturi meter works under the same principle, both meters creates a restriction in the flow channel and the pressure difference across the restriction is measured, which is proportional to the rate of discharge of flowing fluid through the pipeline. Advantages and disadvantages of Orifice and venturi meter are listed …

Three element boiler feed water control

Three Element Control

What is 3 Element Control? Boilers in power plants that encounter quick and wide-ranging load variations need three-element control. Control with three elements is quite similar to control with two elements, with the exception that the water flow loop is closed rather than open. In order to determine the feedwater flow’s index or set point, …
