Automated Meter Reading (AMR)-enabled Water Meters

Our product designers have successfully combined the proven, high-precision measuring insert with a high quality and robust meter body designed for harsh African conditions. The result is the innovative Amanzi SA Water Meter, which is pulse enabled, and ready to combine proven standards with new technologies. Amanzi Meters collaborates closely with its main shareholder, Sebata Municipal Solutions, to provide a complete meter-reading and data-management solution to meet the increasing demands on water utilities.

 

Application

The meter is used to measure the volume of cold potable water passing through the pipeline. The meter is fitted with a non-return valve that will allow water flow only in the direction as indicated on the meter. These volumetric meters are not influenced by flow disturbances upsteam of the meter. It is designed with a grooved piston within the measuring chamber.

Meter stoppages are reduced by the grooved piston which creates a swirling action or turbulence (flow eddy) to suspend solids or particles, until flushed out.

Product Features

  • Rugged and approximately 50% lighter than bras- bodied meters
  • Body made from industrial grade, glass-filled nylon
  • UV- and corrosion-resistant body
  • Grooved piston for optimum performance
  • Working temperature 0°C  50°C
  • Operating pressure PN16
  • Low starting-flow rate and high sensitivity throughout a wide flow range
  • Internal non-return valve and strainer
  • Counter with protected rollers for long-term clear reading
  • Liquid sealed counter to prevent condensation and misting
  • Mechanical drive with direct transmission from measuring chamber to counter ensures standard protection against magnetic manipulation or tampering
  • Grooved piston which creates a swirling action or turbulence (flow eddy) to suspend solids or particles until flushed out, reducing meter stoppages
  • Pulse prepared for remote read-out and communication
  • Latest technology reed switch for optimum performance

Installation

  • Follow the installation notes for plastic meters
  • Before installation, ensure the flow rate allowed by the pipe diameter does not exceed the maximum for which the water meter is designed
  • Note the direction of water flow in the pipe and the water meter to ensure correct directional installation
  • Flush pipeline before installation – ensure no sand or stones that may cause damage enters the system
  • Meter should be constantly filled with water during operation
  • Ensure that no excessive torque is applied to the inlet and outlet threads of the meter body
  • Install in a manner that prevents exposure to excessive sunlight or frost is recommended
  • Meter may be installed in a horizontal or vertical position
