Ring Type Joint Orifice Plates (RTJ Orifice Plates)

RTJ Plates Available in Series 560 or Series 590 Plate Holders

Ring Type Joint Orifice Plates (RTJ Orifice Plates)

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

RTJ Type Orifice Plates incorporate an integral gasket (oval or octagonal ring) that mounts between ring type joint flanges. There are no moving parts and they are suitable for high-temperature and high-pressure applications. We recommend that RTJ Type Orifice Plates be used for clean liquids, gases and low-velocity steam flows.

Most typically we bore our plates to the customer's supplied sizing calculations, but with our professional mechanical engineering team we also offer bore sizing calculation services for an additional fee.

Plate thicknesses depend on the line size and differential pressure. The thickness must be sufficient to prevent the plate from bending under operating conditions. Recommended plate thicknesses for flow measurement plates are shown in the RTJ Orifice Sizing Chart. RTJ type orifice plates may be machined in one piece, or alternatively from two pieces, with an orifice plate screwed onto a carrier ring/gasket.
