Sapphire and Ruby are excellent orifice jewel materials because of their resistance to wear, heat and corrosion, as well as low friction. Ruby makes an ideal jewel orifice for a similar reason. The hole diameter for control purposes is usually specified to be held within 0.0002”. Sapphire and ruby orifice jewels can be used for UHP water jet applications (up to 40,000-50,000 PSI), oil atomizing and the handling of air, hot gases and practically all liquids and acids.
