Fire Service Turbine
The High Performance (HP) Fire Service Turbine Stainless Steel (S) meter offers some of the widest flow ranges of any fire service turbine meters on the market. All HP Fire Service Turbines meet or exceed the latest AWWA Standard C703. Maximum continuous flow rates may be exceeded by as much as 25% for intermittent periods.
The HP Fire Service Turbine S meter is designed to measure both domestic and fire service usage where flow rates are moderate to high. All HP Fire Service Turbine meters are NSF/ANSI 61, Annex G and F certified, Underwriters Laboratory (UL) listed, and Factory Mutual (FM) approved for fire service use and include an attached fire service strainer.
The HP Fire Service Turbine S meter consists of a stainless steel fire service strainer, a rugged lead free high copper alloy maincase, an AWWA Class II turbine measuring element, and a roll-sealed register.
The Unitized Measuring Element (UME) allows for quick, easy, in-line interchangeability. Water volume is measured accurately at all flows by a specially designed assembly. The hydrodynamically balanced thrust compensated rotor relieves pressure on the thrust bearing. Stationary stainless steel shafts minimize wear and provide sustained accuracy over an extended operating life. Direct coupling of the rotor to the gear train eliminates revenue loss due to slippage during fast starts and line surges. A calibration vane allows in-field calibration of the UME to lengthen service life and to ensure accurate registration.
The roll-sealed register eliminates leaking and fogging. A magnetic drive couples the register with the measuring element. For reading convenience, the register can be mounted in any one of four positions on the meter.
