Canalta Single Chamber Orifice Fitting

The Canalta Single Chamber Orifice Fitting is designed and constructed to allow for ease of orifice plate replacement or inspection after depressurization.

All fittings come standard with a documentation package including hydro-test, function test, inner valve seal test, quality control inspection and material test reports. Trace ability is maintained in accordance with the ISO-9001 Quality Control Program. The fittings are manufactured within the guidelines of ASME 16.34 and ASME 16.5. When required, radiography, stress relief, ultra-sonic and liquid dye penetration tests can be performed with the relevant report submitted.

Single Chamber Orifice Fitting models 8” and larger incorporate a rack and pinion gear system to manage the sizeable weight of large orifice plates and carriers. With this system, plate changing remains quick and easy. These models also feature fully accessible and adjustable eccentricity of the orifice plate from the exterior of the fitting. Tamper-proof sealing is done on request.

All Single Chamber Orifice Fittings come standard with HNBR O-ring seals on the seal bar. This feature provides you with superior sealing capability while eliminating nuisance gasket maintenance and clamping bar screw breakage. The O-rings incorporated are standard shelf sizes and can be supplied in a wide variety of compositions. Gaskets are also available and can be used when preferred or required.
