Sensus Debuts New Positive Displacement Meter

Introduced last week, the meter is the company’s latest offering of a lead-free product constructed with composite materials

Sensus introduced the accuSTREAM meter at last week’s AWWA ACE11 in Washington, D.C., providing water utilities with a new option to measure residential water use. The meter applies positive displacement measuring technology and is the most recent lead-free water meter from Sensus, manufactured using composite materials.

Sensus expands its line of composite water meters with the new product, which complies with ANSI/NSF standards. It also includes patented bottom-plate technology for greater strength and a tamper-proof register assembly.

The meter can connect with most advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) and automated meter reading (AMR) systems to support intelligent and reliable remote management of water distribution networks. Utilities using an AMI system can access real-time, accurate data about consumption, reverse flow and leak detection.
