The Cla-Val Pacific Model X52E Orifice Plate Assembly is typically used with our flow control valves. The orifice plate is an essential component used to generate a specific, predictable pressure drop in the system. The X52E uses a wafer design holder which offers a compact lightweight assembly that is easy to install. The X52E has a chamfered "Inlet" side so even after installation, correct orientation can be easily verified.
We recommend installation of this assembly with the sensing port to the side of the pipeline to prevent air pockets and obstructions in the sensing line. Installation adjacent to a butterfly valve is not recommended as the orifice plate assembly may interfere with the opening of this type of valve.
