Bubba Fire Hydrant Meters

They are designed to measure a wide variety of cold potable water flows from fire hydrants where flows are in one direction.

These meters have a large 6” turbine measuring element for use in applications where high flows are expected.

OPERATION:
Water flows through the turbine section causing the rotor to turn proportionately to the quantity of water flowing through the meter. A drive magnet transmits the motion of the rotor to a driven magnet located within the hermetically sealed register. The magnet is connected to a gear train which translates the rotations into volume totalization displayed on the register dial face. The only moving parts in the meter are the rotor assembly and vertical shaft .

CONSTRUCTION:
Bubba Fire Hydrant Meters consist of several basic components: light weight aluminium main case, turbine type measuring element assembly, sealed register, aluminum cover plate, stainless steel hardware, brass lid assembly, optional aluminum or brass swivel and nipple, stainless steel handles, etc. The measuring element assembly includes the rotor assembly, vertical shaft and a calibration vane which eliminates the need for calibration change gears.

MAINTENANCE:
Bubba Fire Hydrant Meters are engineered and manufactured to provide long-term service and operate virtually maintenance free. If maintenance is necessary the measuring element can be removed from the main case.

COMPLIANCE:
Bubba Fire Hydrant Meters are tested and comply with AWWA C701 Class II performance standards.

STRAINERS:
Bubba Fire Hydrant Meters have a built-in 110 square inch stainless steel Z-plate strainer screen.

CONNECTIONS:
Bubba Fire Hydrant Meters are typically configured with 4” aluminum Swivels and Nipples, although Brass connections are available. They can also be configured for 6” Victaulic Couplings or 6” Female Iron Pipe Threads.
