IRT Series Water Meters

IRT Water Meters are ideal for moderate to dirty water conditions. The specially designed paddle wheel measuring device provides a free water passage resulting in low head loss and the ability to accurately measure water with high levels of impurities or debris. Accuracy is achieved over a wide range of flows. Available in 3″, 4″, 6″, 8″ and 10″ sizes.

Product Advantages

  • Ideal for moderate to dirty water conditions.
  • Water is metered with a paddle wheel located at the top of the water passage which provides a free water passage eliminating clogging from debris.
  • Low headloss with the ability to accurately measure water with high levels of impurities or debris.
  • Bearings are constantly flushed during operation to eliminate deposits of solids.
  • Registers are stainless steel encapsulated and guaranteed not to accumulate moisture or fog.
  • Simple maintenance with field replaceable calibrated measuring unit.
  • High level of accuracy (±2%) is achieved over a wide range of flows.
  • Wide selection of register options.

Applications

  • For main supply lines in agriculture applications

IRT Water Meters Installation

Installation Requirements

  • The meter may be installed in any position. For non-horizontal positions, the flow should be upwards.
  • Straight pipe installation requirement of 10 x diameter pipe upstream (before the meter) and 5 x diameter pipe downstream (after the meter).
  • Prior to installation of the meter, the pipeline should be thoroughly flushed.
  • Meter must be installed so that the pipe will be full of water at all times during metering.
  • To eliminate air in the system, continuous acting air vents of proper size and type are required.
