The LMNO Engineering small diameter orifice calculation is valid for orifices installed in pipes having pipe di Equations To top of page The calculations on this page are for orifices carrying a liquid as described in ASME (2001).

w is the static pressure loss occurring from a distance of approximately D upstream of the orifice to a distan of the orifice. It is not the same as differential pressure. Differential pressure is measured at the exact locat (shown in the above figures). Km is computed to allow you to design pipe systems with orifices and incorpor computed as h=KmV2/(2g) where V is the pipe velocity. Discharge Coefficients (ASME, 2001) To top of page Corner Taps:

Flange Taps:

where D is in inches; and d/D and ReD are dimensionless. C is dimensionless. Applicability: Pipe Diameter, D LMNO Engineering calculation requires 1 cm < D < 5.1 cm for both corner and flange taps. ASME (2001) suggests 1.2 cm <= D <= 4 cm for corner taps and 2.5 <= D <= 4 cm for flange taps.

Diameter ratio, d/D LMNO Engineering and ASME (2001) require 0.1 <= d/D <= 0.8 for corner taps and 0.15 <= d/D <= 0.7 for fla Reynolds number based on pipe diameter, ReD LMNO Engineering and ASME (2001) require ReD > 1000.
