Revenue for water utilities is circling the drain. Most commercial water meters can stand up to the high water flow of commercial water customers, but these same meters often have a hard time measuring low water flows and retaining accurate meter reads over time and continuous flow conditions. Grocery stores, for example, do not pay […]Read More
The boom in shale gas exploration and the resulting natural gas supply is driving a need for meters that can maintain accuracy in an aging and under-maintained pipeline system. Rotary, diaphragm and orifice meters are still widely used in the field, even though contaminants common in well head production can damage the meter or cause […]Read More
