An experimental orifice plate metering test section, one of two being made for use in an international research programme, is to be tested by participating laboratories to establish sound data from which definitive values for orifice plate flow coefficients can be derived. A secondary objective of the test programme will be to study the effect of upstream flow disturbances on the flow coefficients obtained. This progress report gives details of the dimensional inspection of the component parts of the 100 mm (4 in) orifice plate test section assembly and compares the measurements obtained with the relevant requirements of AGA3 and ISO 5167 standard codes.
