  • Commissioning tests with 0.2 beta ratio plate in EEC expansibility rig in air with Re(d) of 35 000 and re-examination of existing EEC data on expansibility


After commissioning tests using all three tapping arrangements on a 0.2 diameter ratio orifice plate in a 100 mm test line using air at a Reynolds number of 35,000, it was concluded that the fit with the Buckingham expansibility equation was good. This equation also fitted previous EEC data and it was concluded that the present ISO 5167 equation was substantiated.
