INDUSTRIAL METER

Diehl Metering offers a modular system based on the volumetric technology. Modules are available in various materials and can be easily assembled. A large choice of materials, adapted to the nature of the measured liquid, can be proposed for each measurement problem.
Modular system gives the possibility to exchange or add one or several pulse emitter modules.
Measuring chamber and rotary piston control and cleaning operations can be carried out on the site, without dismounting the ARD meter from the pipe. It's possible to integrate a heating device in the measuring chamber according to the type of liquid to be measured. These meters have an important measuring dynamic and even very low flowrates are recorded with precision.

    Metering in both flow directionYes
    Straight lengthNot necessary
  • Assembly

    Rotary piston meters may be fitted on all positions but the dial of the register must never face down. No straight length before or after the meter is required. Meters with a register must be installed to be read easily. Rotary piston meters are precision instruments and must always be protected by an impurity collector or a filter. The mesh width must be less than 100 microns (0.1 mm).
