Boiler feedwater DP(kPa) to flow(m3/hr) calculation


My client is looking to have me calculate the boiler feed water differential pressure in kPa to and actual flowrate in m3/hr.

Once the actual flow rate is derived, the flow rate goes into a custom function block which will get pressure and temperature (density) compensated.

The current conditions are:
DP: 42 kPa
Orfice ID: 40.4241mm
Pipe ID: 76.2mm

Control system:
Control logix L74 Version 20
HMI: Factory Talk SE Version 9

Could someone please provide me with the correct formula?
Also a solution to the equation with the parameters listed?

Thanks so much!

Th full details for the calculation are included in ASME PTC 19.5. It is probably worth it for your employer to purchase this standard.
