Bronze Turbine Water Meters

Sizes: 1-1/2”, 2”, 3”, 4”, 6”, and 8”

Bronze Turbine Water Meters are to be used in measurement of potable cold water in commercial and industrial services where flows are in one direction.

OPERATION:
Water flows through the turbine section which causes 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 water are the rotor assembly and vertical shaft .

CONSTRUCTION:
ZENNER PERFORMANCE Bronze Turbine Meters consist of three basic components: bronze main case, measuring element, and a sealed register. The main case is made of bronze with round flanges, except for the 1-1/2” and 2” meters which have oval flanges. The measuring element assembly includes the rotor assembly, vertical shaft and a calibration vane which eliminates the need for calibration change gears. The 1-1/2” bronze turbine meter has a built-in stainless steel strainer.

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

COMPLIANCE:
ZENNER PERFORMANCE Bronze Turbine Meters are tested and comply with AWWA C701 Class II 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 the 1-1/2” bronze turbine meter has a built-in strainer

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