Dual Chamber Orifice Fitting with Double Isolation

 

The meter2di “Dual Chamber Orifice fitting with Double Isolation” is a proven system for safely and quickly inspecting and changing orifice plates in line with strict industry guidelines.

The meter2di solution is compliant with HSG253 publication ‘The safe isolation of plant and equipment’ and is classed as “Category II Proved Isolation”. All valve and internal chambers shafts can be ‘locked’ providing a physical and visible means of control, and is in compliance with many of the operators ‘isolation philosophy's’.

Each product has been fully FEA (Finite Element Analysis) tested at design stage ensuring maximum safety to the user and the system. The meter2di has undergone a series of rigorous cycling tests ensuring the repeatability of the seals and equipment. Upon product assembly, each product is fully pressure tested to satisfy industry safety, European pressure guidelines and product expectations.


8” 900 meter2di Dual Chamber with Double Isolation

Benefits

  • Double isolation with visible proofing mechanism – HP and LP pressure gauges.
  • All valve and internal chamber seals can be locked into position.
  • Safe change out of plates.
  • Increased turn down capability.
  • Reduced operating costs – Uninterrupted gas flow whilst plates are safely inspected.
  • As there are no calibration requirements on orifice plates, the solution is an economic option against ultrasonic and cone meters.
  • Flexibility - Maintenance can be performed at any time and not scheduled into the installations annual shut down period.
  • High pressure solution for 2500# ANSI meters. Duplex manifold rated to 10,000PSI.
  • Patent Pending.

Maximising the meter2di ®

To ensure absolute metering accuracy, it is recommended that meter tubes are purchased and manufactured to complement the orifice fitting. This ensures concentricity between the pipe and the fitting, and eliminates uncertainties associated with misalignment. EPS can supply the following items for a complete metering solution;

  • Orifice fitting with Meter Tube including straightening vane/profiler
  • DP transmitters and Process Transmitters
  • Flow Computer and Enclosure

Standard Materials of Construction

  • Body Casting – ASTM A352 LCC
  • Pressure Caps/Covers – ASTM A516 Gr.70
  • Internal components – Stainless Steel 316
  • Seals – Selected per application
  • External Bolting – ASTM A194 L7 (HDG)
  • Other materials are available upon request


Orifice Plates

The meter1 and meter2 orifice fittings use industry standard orifice plate thicknesses as per the guidelines set out within ISO 5167 and API 14.3.
