An orifice meter is a device which is used to measure the flow through a pipe.  The construction of the orifice meter is simple.

It consists of a circular plate with an orifice in the center.  The plated is fitted in the middle of the pipeline.  The orifice offers resistance to the flow of water.  This results in a drop in pressure after the orifice.

The static pressure is measured
