  • AWWA Standard water meter

  • Product Description
  • PD meter is an oscillating piston style, positive displacement water meter . The meter utilizes a pistonthat water flow rotates in a measuring chamber , each piston revolution being equivalent to a known volume of water .

    Comply to  AWWA  Standard C710 

    The main case is made of engineered polymer , leadfree

    Tamper proof screw is added to the meter

    Pulse output prepared (1 pulse per 10 gallons)

  • Model : PD METER

Accuracy of Water Meters at Low and High Flow Rates 

There are many meter manufacturers in the United States and throughout the world, yet six of these manufacturers sell the majority of the residential and commercial flow meters in the United States used for utility billing. They are Sensus, Neptune, Hersey, Badger, Master Meter, and Amco (Ron Koch, Master Meter, Director of Business Development, personal interview, June 2006). Also, approximately 85% of all utility billing flow meters sold in the United States are the positive displacement design with approximately 15% being the multi-jet design (Ron Koch, personal interview, June 2006). The remaining meter technologies are estimated to have less than 1 to 2% usage in the United States. Municipalities may have meter testing and replacement programs that are commonly based upon variables such as the number of years the meter has been in service, the totalized registered volume, the decision to upgrade existing flow measurement equipment with more state-of-the-art devices, and meter replacement due to meter failures and maintenance problems. Some meter designs are inherently more susceptible to wear because they contain more moving parts or have closer tolerances between parts. These meter types may need to be replaced more often than meters that are less susceptible to wear. It is understood that particulates can damage, accelerate wear, or become lodged in the flow meter, thus compromising accuracy. Certainly, a municipality would not want to consider replacing a flow meter solely to upgrade their flow measurement devices to a more user-friendly drive-by readout device if the new meter associated with the new electronics does not comply with AWWA accuracy standards. It would also be unnecessary to replace a meter based only upon years in service or the registry total if experimental data showed that the meter type was accurate for a longer life. Additionally, it has been unclear if the flow meters need to be replaced more often than usual in systems where particulates are a problem. Relatively little is known about the effects of particles upon meter accuracy.
