I know the inlet pressure, temperature and density along with the massflow rate across the orifice and the orifice cross section. Is there a way for me to calculate the drop in pressure across the orifice?

Yes. The Wikipedia article is a good summary of orifice calculations: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orifice_plate. The ASME book on fluid meters has a more complete treatment.

And welcome to PF.
