COMBINATION MASTER VALVE AND WATER METER FLOW SENSOR

A combination water meter and hydraulic valve in a single unit saving space and installation costs. The double-chambered valve is specially designed for high-pressure operation. Addition of pilot or solenoid valves enables remote and/or automatic hydraulic commands. No straight pipe length is required upstream or downstream of the globe configuration hydrometers making them ideal for tight installations. Available in globe configuration and a large variety of sizes.

Product Advantages

  • Globe Configuration With Built-In Straightening Vane: Requires no straight pipe installation – saving space.
  • ± 2% Accuracy Across Flow Ranges: No more false alarms.
  • Rugged, Heavy Duty Construction: Cast Iron with corrosion-resistant coating.
  • Registers Are Stainless Steel/Composite Encapsulated: Guaranteed against fogging due to moisture.
  • Double-Chambered Valve: Provides quick acting and positive opening and closing.
  • Sub Metering: Meter dedicated to landscape irrigation water.
