How does an orifice plate work?

The small hole on orifice plates restricts flow which causes the pressure to drop. The pressure can be measured using pressure gauges before and after the orifice plates which allows you to determine the flow rate using the Bernoulli’s Equation. An orifice plate is installed between orifice flanges or a metering unit.
