Fire Service Meter

Application

The HP PROTECTUS III S fire service meter is designed to measure both domestic and fire service water usage through a single water line. A typical application would be in a warehouse, hotel, or hospital where one water line may supply any number of faucets or bathrooms as well as an automatic sprinkler system.

Operation

At low f low rates, all f low is through the bypass meter. As f low increases, pressure loss through the bypass meter increases and the detector check valve automatically opens. This condition occurs, for example, when a fire sprinkler system goes into operation. This permits f low through the mainline turbine meter. As f low decreases, reduced pressure loss closes the detector check valve and f low is again directed through the bypass meter.

Construction

The combined readings of the mainline turbine and the bypass meter indicate total consumption through the HP PROTECTUS III S meter.
