Need a Flowmeter Meter Tap Installed?
1) Choose a location on the pipe where a distance of 10 diameters up-stream
and 5 diameters down-stream of the meter provide no flow disturbance. Pipe bends,
valves or other fittings, and pipe enlargements and reductions should not be present in
this area of the pipe.
2) The preferred location of a meter on a horizontal pipe is on top, or not more than 45 degrees from top dead center. The meter should never be located at the bottom of the pipe, as sediment may collect and disrupt accuracy or damage the meter. Locations off of top dead center will cause impeller friction to increase, which may affect the meter's performance at low flow rates. Any location is correct for installations on vertical pipelines.
3) An insertion depth of 1-1/2" for pipe sizes of 2.5" and larger is required for various meter mounting configurations to ensure accuracy.
4) Alignment of the meter’s impeller rotation parallel to flow is important.
