I have a 3 inch line with a 1.5 inch flow orifice. If I take out the flow orifice and put in a 1.5 inch coriolis meter will the pressure drop be the same or better with the new coriolis meter than with the flow orifice?

  • $\begingroup$ Well, does your meter come with a datasheet indicating any internal pressure losses? $\endgroup$ – Carl Witthoft Aug 23 '18 at 18:38

Usually flow orifices are very aggresive to the pressure. Everything you add has a pressure drop and doing calculations by hand of an equipment like that can be hell. So yes you should check the specs of the meter first.
