Bronze Compound Water Meters

Sizes 2”, 3”, 4”, 6”, and 8”

Bronze Compound Water Meters are for use in measurement of potable cold water in commercial and industrial services where flows are in one direction.

OPERATION:

ZENNER PERFORMANCE Bronze Compound Meters utilize a turbine type meter on the main flow line and a proportionately sized meter on the low flow/bypass line. A change over valve controls the flow of water through the appropriate measuring device. Before the valve opens, all water flows through the low flow meter. As pressure rises the valve opens, allowing water to flow through both meters. Movement of the measuring elements are transmitted to drive magnets, which transmit the motion to driven magnets located within hermetically sealed registers. The magnets are connected to gear trains, which translate the rotations into volume totalization displayed on the register dial faces.

CONSTRUCTION:
ZENNER PERFORMANCE Bronze Compound Meters consist of a main case, turbine measuring element, changeover valve housing, main case cover, multi-jet type meter, and magnetically driven register assemblies. The main case, changeover housing and bypass meter are cast in bronze. The measuring element assembly includes the rotor assembly, vertical shaft and a calibration vane which eliminates the need for calibration change gears.

MAINTENANCE:
ZENNER PERFORMANCE Bronze Compound Meters are engineered and manufactured to provide longterm service and operate virtually maintenance free. If necessary the universal measuring element (UME) can be removed from the main case for maintenance. Interchangeability of certain parts between like sized meters minimizes spare parts inventory.

COMPLIANCE:
ZENNER PERFORMANCE Bronze Compound Meters are tested and comply with AWWA C702 performance standards.

STRAINERS:
ZENNER PERFORMANCE Meter recommends the use of a separate strainer upstream from the turbine meter. Strainers reduce the chance of damage to the rotor as well as the frequency in which it must be removed for inspection. The lack of a strainer may void the warranty of the turbine meter. Note that Performance Bronze Compound Meters do not come with a strainer.

CONNECTIONS:
Companion flanges for installation of meters on various pipe types and sizes are available in bronze or cast iron.
