Measuring with the Sound of Science™
Now available in sizes 2" - 12", the Octave® Ultrasonic Meter represents a new approach to comprehensive flow management and accountability based on a greatly improved version of the AWWA C750 standard. This highly advanced, all-digital technology achieves precise measurement without any moving parts to ensure optimum revenue without compromised performance over time.
With a dynamic flow range starting as low as 1/16 GPM, this unique meter solution is a perfect replacement for any mechanical compound, fire service, or turbine meter. Commonly 20% of the utility installed meter base generates 80% of the utility’s revenue. The Octave focuses advanced metering science where the real revenue exists — within the C&I meter assets.
Powerful intel such as Flow Direction, Empty Pipe Alerts, Leak Alarms, Battery Level, and a Rate of Flow are standard.
