Orifice flanges for controlling flow at SHELL

Nov 14, 2016
ULMA Piping has been certified by SHELL oil company on orifice flanges with welded Nipple. The Anglo-Dutch oil company is one of the four largest in the oil sector along with BP, ExxonMobil and Total.

By using the welded Nipple orifice, flow is controlled by measuring the pressure in two areas separated by a section reducer. An orifice is drilled on the flanges and then a Nipple is welded to them and used for installing a pressure gauge used for measuring pressure. The Bernoulli principle is applied for obtaining the flow of the pipe.

This product is part of the range of products that ULMA Piping is developing along the periphery of the standard flange, where it is a world leader in the Oil & Gas sector.
