Metering commercial and industrial water consumption
Accurately metering of commercial and industrial water accounts is a key element to reducing apparent water loss. In general, commercial customers make up a small percentage of a utility’s customer-base; however commercial customers consume significantly more water than the average residential account.
Consumption patterns of commercial and industrial customers often involve fluctuations between low flow rates and continuously high flow rates.
Durable, watertight construction
flowIQ® 3101 is constructed with a stainless steel flow part and is IP-68 rated, meaning it can be installed and continually immersed in water without any risk of water ingress to the meter’s display or internal components. The industrial water meter uses a bidirectional ultrasonic measuring technique to ensure commercial and industrial water consumption is measured accurately at both high and low flow rates. With no moving parts, the meter will maintain the same throughout its lifetime as the day it is installed.
Much more than consumption
The meter’s intelligent alarms enable you to quickly and efficiently detect bursts and leaks, as well as any instances of reverse flows or tampering attempts. This reduces the water loss and the possible collateral damage to the distribution network.
