Cold-Water Meters-Compound Type
|Publication Date:||24 January 2015|
This standard describes the various types and classes of cold-water compoundtype meters in sizes 2 in. (50 mm) through 8 in. (200 mm), and the materials and workmanship used in their fabrication. Compound meters shall consist of a combination of a turbine-type mainline meter for measuring high rates of flow and a bypass meter of an appropriate size for measuring low rates of flow. The compound meter shall have an automatic valve mechanism for diverting low rates of flow through the bypass meter.
The purpose of this standard is to provide the minimum requirements for compound-type cold-water meters, including materials and design.
