Vertical Orifice Plates

Among the several devices used in the measurement and control of fluid flow, one of the most widely used devices is an orifice plate. It consists of a TriClamp® gasket, which helps you to install the sanitary plate in practically any sanitary clamp connection. There are a number of different types of orifice plates being used today depending on the application. The vertical orifice plates are the latest type of devices being introduced in several industrial applications. As their name suggests, these plates are used or installed in the vertical applications. These orifice plates are most commonly used in the sanitary process industries for the purpose of restricting the flow of process fluids. SSP Manufacturing, Inc. is one of the leading providers of vertical orifice plates in the USA.

Beneficial Features of the Vertical Orifice Plates

The vertical orifice plates are popularly used in a wide range of applications owing to their several beneficial features. These features are as follows:

  1. Electropolished:These orifice plates are available with 10 RA electro polished or better finish. This not only enhances their performance but also their appearance.
  2. Eccentric & Concentric:They are available as both eccentric, as well as concentric drilled plates. The concentric orifice plates are suitable for use with clean liquids, gases, and steam flows. The eccentric plates, on the other hand, are suitably used measuring liquids carrying non-abrasive solids, or gases in small amounts.
