Step 2 – Select the item #, the item # defines the (a) body size, (b) connection type and (c) material type.

A) Body Size- pipe size at the meter inlet. Select from Standard Flow Rate and Body Size Table.

B) Connection Type (Series) -

  1. Threaded units provided with FNPT connection Standard. FBSP parallel threads available on request for Bronze and Monel meters.

  2. Wafer units mount between any standard 150 # and 300 # class flanges (or international equivalent).


C) Materials -

1= Bronze    2= Monel   3= Stainless Steel

Select 1 to 5 items to either compare items or request information (Step 3) to complete the flow meter model number.

Step 3 – Select (d) flow direction, (e) flow range, (f) housing material and (g) options.

D) Flow Direction - Select L, R, VUL, VUR, VDL, VDR (see diagram).

E) Flow Range (full scale)- Select from Standard Flow Rates and Body Sizes from chart. Prefix full scale with “M” for metric meters.

F) Housing - ABS Standard, F-Aluminum w/Plastic Dial Crystal Optional and F2 – Aluminum w/Glass Dial Crystal.

G) Options (if required) - Select from table of options. Note: for gas service, select option I and specify gas being measured, inlet temperature and pressure.
