India has a water distribution problem, brought about by climate change, rapid industrialization, a growing population and a water supply network that has not kept up with demand. Currently, the water supply is often rationed across different districts by “key turners,” who turn it off for hours a day. However, this approach, alongside the condition of the pipework and pumps, produces its own problems for the distribution network.
Mechanical meters typically used today degrade quickly under these conditions, suffering from clogged jets, pitting of impeller blades and excessive mechanical wear, resulting in a rapid loss of accuracy.
So what are the alternatives? This white paper discusses why residential electromagnetic meters are the most effective for the Indian market.
