Orifice Plates and Plate Sealing Units

Quality Beyond Compare

EExceptional performance and superior durability are the hallmarks of Daniel Orifice Plates and Plate Seals. Available in a variety of line sizes and materials, these simple yet effective differential pressure measurement solutions are compatible with all Daniel ̀fittings (Senior, Junior, Simplex and Orifice Flange Unions) and continue to be one of the most widely used oil and gas ́flow measurement technologies. Every Daniel plate is expertly manufactured to meet or exceed AGA 3/API 14.3 standards and a variety of plate materials and seal options, including nitrile (NBR) and PTFE, are available to ensure optimum performance in extreme conditions as well as to eliminate the possibility of gas leakage or spillage of liquids.
