If I want to settle a dispute over the color puce, I can go to the Internet and search "puce." Rather than debating for hours with my sister-in-law whether puce is a greenish color or a reddish-brown to purplish-brown color, I can instantly find the answer. For the record, it's a reddish-brown to purplish-brown color and my sister-in-law was correct.

The one downside to a general search is the need to wade through a lot of dubious pages to find credible sources.

To use this handy tool (click here for a tutorial), all you need to do is enter a term in the search bar on any page on our site. (It's located in the top right corner). After you click enter, the results will be displayed. You can sort by relevance or date, and by article, products, whitepapers or news. If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you can choose to "Search our sister sites for orifice plate sizing." Simply pick which sites you want results from and click "search selected sites."
Voila – more results and more information to ensure you arrive at sound conclusions to many of life's questions.
We hope this expanded feature serves you well.
