Water Meters in Manheim 

A water meter is a device used to measure the volume of water usage.

In many developed countries water meters are used to measure the volume of water used by residential and commercial building that are supplied with water by a public water supply system. Water meters can also be used at the water source, well, or throughout a water system to determine flow through that portion of the system. In most of the world water meters measure flow in Cubic metres (m3) or litres [1] but in the USA and some other countries water meters are calibrated in cubic feet (ft.3), or US gallons on a mechanical or electronic register. Some electronic meter registers can display rate-of-flow in addition to total usage.

There are several types of water meter in common use. Selection is based on different flow measurement methods, the type of end user, the required flow rates, and accuracy requirements.

In North America, standards for manufacturing of water meters are made by the American Water Works Association.

Residential Meters

SM700

The SM700 Smart Meter is perfect for residential applications. It can be used as a visual read meter or in a fully AMR enabled format allowing ultimate ease in meter reading. With no moving parts the SM700 delivers accurate readings and eliminates under-recording of consumption in areas affected by grit and sand. Available in a range of sizes with a 3/4” or 1” thread.

 

  • No moving parts to jam or wear - unaffected by grit, sand or particles
  • Does not measure air
  • Retains accuracy throughout its entire lifetime
  • Economically brings smart technology benefits to metering systems — SmartMeter features ensure reductions in whole life costs
  • Visual read or AMR
  • Tamper / fraud / leakage / air / no flow detection
  • Meter diagnostics
  • High resolution measurement by volumetric unit
  • Certified to NSF61
  • Exceeds requirements of AWWA Standard C713
  • Available in three sizes:
      5/8” x 1/2” – 20gpm meter – 1/2” case – 3/4” thread
      5/8” x 3/4” – 20gpm meter – 3/4” case – 1” thread
      3/4” x 3/4” – 30gpm meter – 3/4” case – 1” thread

 

 

 

OMNI R2

Overview

The OMNI R2 is a technological advanced water meter for large residential applications. The key to the OMNI R2's optimal measurement is the proven OMNI Floating Ball technology (FBT). FBT employs an impeller with a ball design which makes the impeller weightless in the water line. The technology enables the impeller to begin moving with very little water flow or force through the meter. The result is that the OMNI R2 has an extended flow range with better low flow sensitivity and the ability to capture extended high flow rates – all with virtually no wear.

 

 

Commercial and Industrial Meters

OMNI Turbo (T2)

Overview

The OMNI meter is the most technologically advanced large water meter on the market today. The key to this optimal measurement performance is the application of the new Floating Ball Technology (FBT). FBT employs an impeller with a ball design which makes the impeller weightless in the water line. The technology enables the impeller to begin moving with very little water flow or force through the meter. The result is that OMNI has an extended flow range with better low flow sensitivity, as well as the ability to capture extended high flow rates - all with virtually no wear.

The T2 meter assembly maintains peak performance capability and continuous operation up to the rated maximum capacity flows without affecting long-term accuracy or causing any unwarranted component wear.  The meter assembly also provides a 25% flow capacity in excess of the maximum flows listed for intermittent flow demands.
