Re: Reducing pressures with Orifice Plates

Thanks again admin, for your feedback. Regarding my original question about the use of k on these particular equations (this k is cp/cv, as you wrote before), you just pointed me in the right direction, because now I see it, in that Y equation you mentioned, but its symbol there is X, not k, that is...

Re: Reducing pressures with Orifice Plates

Thanks Admin, for the fast reply. And yes, I have tables of R and k values for gases, but what I was looking for, is to know in which specific formulas of this calculator are those factors being used because, as I wrote in my first post, they are not shown in the formulas of the "Theory" page. To yo...

Reducing pressures with Orifice Plates

Hi, We are installing two orifices, one on a CO2 line, one on argon line, but not for flow measurement, but rather to limit the flow in case the lines gets broken (thus generating a large pressure drop), but for the normal operating conditions, our flow is very small so the pressure drop thru the or...
