INSTALLATION (Refer to Exploded View - Page 5 )
The meter can be installed in any position, on rigid pipelines or
flexible hoses, directly on pumps or tanks. The meter can be fitted
In–Line or with the Inlet & outlet ports at Right Angle. Inlet &
Outlet ports are marked with IN & OUT respectively. Meter Cover
(4) can be removed and the Counter Assembly (7) can be rotated
at every 90° orientation in four different positions. Meter Label (1)
can be fixed before or after rotating the display.

How to rotate the Display
1. Pull & remove the Reset
Knob (3) from the meter.
4. Carefully remove the
Cover Seal (5).

2. Unscrew the two Allen
bolts (2) anticlockwise
with key (size 4) & remove
the meter cover (4).
5. Remove Counter
Assembly (7) taking
care not to damage the
Housing Seal (13).
6. Rotate & reinstall Counter Assembly (7) in the desired
position. The display can be chosen from one of the following
positions.
3. Unscrew the four Allen
bolts (6) anticlockwise
with key (size 4).
7. Install Cover Seal (5). First,
tighten the four Allen bolts
(6) by hand in an even &
diagonal pattern as shown
in the picture & finally
tighten them with allen key
(size 4).
NOTE
After installation, rotate
the Total gears with
fingers & ensure their
smooth movement.

METER CALIBRATION (Refer to Exploded View - Page 5 )
The meter is pre-calibrated in factory under standard conditions.
A new calibration is necessary whenever there is a change in any
of the following:
• Media Viscosity OR
• Flow Rate OR
• Operating Temperature
Important
For ensuring the accuracy of measurements, the flow
rate should never be kept below 20 LPM (5 GPM).
Calibration procedure
1. Vent the air from pump, pipelines and meter by dispensing until the flow stream is full and steady.
2. Stop the flow by shutting off the nozzle, but let the pump run.
3. Reset the Batch Total to zero using reset knob (3).
4. Dispense at the desired flow rate into a graduated container whose capacity should not be lower than 20 litres (5 gallons).
Note
Do not reduce the flow in order to reach a preset value of the calibration container.
The right method is to start and stop the full flow repeatedly until the required level is obtained.
5. The Meter Value should be matched with the Container Value as given below.
• If the Meter Value is higher than Container Value (i.e the meter is running fast), loosen the Calibration screw (16) anticlockwise.
• If the Meter Value is lower than the Container Value (i.e the meter is running slow), tighten the Calibration screw (16) clockwise.

6. Repeat steps (3 - 5) until accuracy is satisfactory.
OPERATION (Refer to Exploded View - Page 5)
After installation, turn the reset knob (2) until the batch total becomes zero. The totalizer cannot be reset in any way.
Use by Gravity
This meter can also be used without pump pressure in a system where flow is generated due to difference in height between fuel level and
dispensing point.
Notes
• Longer pipes or nozzles reduce the flow by causing higher pressure losses.
• Use By Gravity is not recommended where the height of fuel is lower than 4 feet as the flow rate will be reduced, resulting
in inaccurate measurement. For better accuracy, ensure that the flow rate never falls below 20 LPM (5 GPM).
• On field calibration is always recommended in case of Gravity installations.
MAINTENANCE (Refer to Exploded View - Page 5)
This fuel meter does not require any special maintenance other than the cleaning of measuring chamber (It may get clogged sometimes due to
insufficient filtration).
Notes
• The meter can be easily disassembled into its main parts without removing the meter from the pipes.
• Never remove meter label from the meter.
• Internal parts should be cleaned with a soft brush or small tool (i.e. a screwdriver).
• During cleaning, be careful not to damage the measuring chamber or nutating disk.
• A new calibration is always necessary after disassembling the measuring chamber. Before disassembling always ensure
that the line pressure is released and all fluid is drained from the meter.

CLEANING THE MEASURING CHAMBER (Refer to Exploded View - Page 5)
1. Remove the knob (2), Meter cover (4) & Counter Assembly
(7) by following steps 1 - 5 from the section: “How to rotate
the display”- on Page 2.
4. Use a soft brush to clean
the Measuring Chamber
(14). Be careful not
to damage the plastic
components.
2. Unscrew the two screws
(8) with a Phillips
Screwdriver and remove
Nutating Disc Assembly.

5. To reassemble, reverse the abovementioned procedure paying particular attention to:
3. Remove O Ring (10) and
disconnect Upper Chamber (9), Lower Chamber
(12) & Nutating Disk (11).
O Ring
•
Lubricate the Seal (14) and O ring (10) with small amount of grease before installation.
•
First, tighten the four Allen bolts (6) by hand in an even & diagonal pattern as shown in the picture & finally tighten them with allen key (size 4).
NOTE
After installation,
rotate the Total
gears with fingers &
ensure their smooth
movement.
