Turbo Fire Hydrant Water Meters for Measuring Cold Potable Water Flows from Metering and Technology Solutions

Turbo Fire Hydrant Water Meters from Metering and Technology Solutions are lightweight, portable, non-permanent meters that are ideal for pool contractors, construction and landscape companies.

Turbo Fire Hydrant Water Meters are designed to measure a wide variety of cold potable water flows from fire hydrants where flows are in one direction. They are perfect for companies such as pool contractors, construction and landscape companies who need a temporary solution to move large volumes of water for a short time period. The Model 450 fire hydrant water meter consists of three basic components: the meter and meter housing, the measuring element and the permanently sealed register, and is available with an optional backflow prevention valve.

Fire Hydrant Water Meters Features:

  • Accurate measurement for temporary water use
  • Lightweight aluminum case, easy to handle
  • Turbo Series meter provides high accuracy over a wide range of flow rates
  • Optional back flow prevention valve

The housing of the Turbo Fire Hydrant Water Meter is light-weight heat treated aluminum alloy, compact and easy to handle. The measuring element of these high volume water meters consists of the transmission coupling, measuring element insert, rotor, straightening vane, and calibration vane assembly. The straightening vanes minimize swirl from piping arrangements upstream. It also features a restriction plate - a permanent orifice positioned at the meter outlet to limit the maximum outflow to prevent the meter from over spinning if the system is discharged to the atmosphere.

Optional Back Flow Prevention Valve

State as well as municipal water authorities are starting to require all fire hydrant water meters to have a backflow prevention system to protect the potable water supply. The built-in dual check valves provide a practical solution to prevent backflow into the primary water source. The Badger Meter’s Model 450 fire hydrant reduced pressure backflow preventer valve is designed to provide a drip proof closure to protect the water supply and immediately vent the valve housing to the atmosphere to further protect the potable water system.

The Model 450 fire hydrant is designed to provide long service life with a minimal amount of maintenance. When maintenance is required it can be performed in the field or any other convenient location.
