EMCO Restriction Plate Series for RF Flanges IRB/1

restriction plate irb1

EMCO restriction plates are used to restrict the flow in order to prevent damage on pipe line equipment on the upstream side in blow down systems or to limit the flow / pressure to avoid damage on equipment on the downstream side. The plates can be calculated according ISO 5167 as thin restriction orifice plates, or thick plates according to R.W. Miller/Ward-Smith.







restriction plates and critial flow devices

EMCO Restriction plates and Critical flow Devices type IRB/1, IRB/4, IRB/6, ILR

These single hole plates are mounted between flanges according to ANSI B 16.5 with raised face or ring type joint, according to the NORSOK flange standard L-005, or hub connections for high pressure applications The plates can be supplied in many different material qualities including AISI 316, 22Cr.Duplex, 25Cr Duplex, 6Mo, Hastelloy, Titanium etc. There is virtually no limitation for design pressure or temperature. A full documentation package is available including calculation of bore, plate thickness, noise level, dimensional drawing, pressure test, PMI test
