Orifice plate gaskets are suitable for systems and piping made of stainless-steel, in which Tri-Clamp connections are being used. The gaskets with orifice plates can be used to control the flow within the pipe, change the flowing speed, compensate back pressure, avoid dead legs and allow to completely drain the pipe. The bores are available concentric or eccentric and in various diameters. The orifice plate gaskets are made of different gasket materials depending on the application.

Information about Orifice Plate Gaskets
The orifice plate gaskets are available for the Tri-Clamp connections of size ½’’ to 6’’. This makes them suitable for a broad range of processes and applications. They are used anywhere, where piping with sanitary connections are being used and the flow of the medium has to be adjusted. The orifice plate is available without a bore by default. However, on request it can be supplied with individually placed bores. The surface of the orifice plate is made of stainless steel and has a standardized surface quality of at least Ra 20µm. Also, the surface can be electronically polished to achieve a better and smoother finish.
The orifice plate gaskets are available in the following materials in order to offer the best option for every application and also for every medium.
- FKM fluororubber
- Platinum cured Silicone
- PTFE (fluoropolymere)
The materials have been certified exceedingly and meet or exceed the requirements of USP Class VI, ASME BPE standards and also cGMP.
The gaskets are also available as a version with a stainless steel tab. This tab is visible from the outside and shows which orifice plate gasket is currently installed within the tubing. An individual engraving by laser is possible and can be applied upon request.
The suiting sanitary clamps can be found here!
