Description
Operation. T3000 Turbine Meters are designed for installation
where occasional low and moderate to high sustained flows are
demanded. Water passes through the meter without a change in
flow direction, driving a helix rotor in direct proportion to the
quantity of water passing through the meter. Rotor revolutions
are transferred to a register by appropriate reduction gearing and
a magnetic drive.
Compliance to Standards. The T3000 Turbine Meter complies
with all performance and material requirements of the American
Water Works Association Standard C701, Class II In-Line (HighVelocity) Type, as most recently revised.
Installation. The meter must be installed in a clean pipeline,
free from any foreign materials. Install the meter with direction
of flow as indicated by the arrow cast in the meter case. The
meter may be installed in horizontal, vertical or inclined lines. It
is recommended that a plate strainer be used to protect the
measuring element and reduce the effects of turbulence. The
installer should consider a bypass pipe with gate valves for use
during maintenance and a downstream test plug for future field
testing.
Application. The meter is for use in POTABLE COLD WATER
up to 120° (50°C) and working pressures up to 150 psi. The
meter will perform with accuracy registration of 100% ± 1 1/2%
within the normal flows*. Both pressure loss and accuracy tests
are made before shipment. No adjustments need be made
before installation.
Construction. The meter consists of a main case, a measuring
element, a case cover and a magnetically driven register assembly. The main case is cast in iron with raised characters showing
model, size and direction of flow. The case has a throated inlet.
A case dowel pin is inserted for locating the cover plate. The
measuring element assembly consists of the rotor, straightening
vanes, accuracy regulator, spindles and gears, filters and
undergear assembly. The measuring element is attached to the
underside of the cover with four stainless steel screws and
washers, one insert of which is placed eccentrically in the cover.
The internal regulator assembly is interconnected with a concealed and tamperproof regulator shaft located on top of the
cover, allowing meter calibration without depressurizing the test

bench or the meter service. The regulator is protected by a tamperproof device. The main case and cover are assembled with an Oring gasket and stainless steel nuts, bolts and washers. The register
assembly is secured to the cover with a slotted screw and is hinged
over the inlet throat. However, the register can be rotated and
locked in any 360 degree position therein.
Register. The register is contained within a 90% copper seamless
can which is oven cured at 150°F for 90 minutes to eliminate condensation. The 1/4” true tempered glass lens is domed and secured
in an “L” shaped gasket, then roll sealed. To assure easy reading,
the totalized wheels are large and color coded. The applicable size,
model, registration, part number and date code are printed on the
calibrated dial face. Moving clockwise during operation, the extra
thin sweep hand does not interfere with meter reading, and the flow
indicator will detect plumbing leaks.
Connections. Meter sizes 1 1/2” - 3” are available with four-bolt
round flanged end connections, and the 4” - 8” meters are available
with eight-bolt round flanged end connections. Round flanged connections conform to ANSI B16.1 cast iron pipe flange, Class 125.
Both bronze and cast-iron companion flanges are available. The
companion flanges are faced, drilled and tapped with ANSI B2.1
internal taper pipe thread and conform to ANSI B16.1 cast-iron pipe
flange, Class 125.
Maintenance. The measuring element with integral straightening
vanes can be removed, repaired or replaced without removing the
main case from the service line. Blank cover plates are available for
use during repair. Pretested and calibrated measuring elements with
cover plates and registers are available for exchange or purchase
from AMCO’s warehouses in the US and Canada. In addition,
AMCO Water Metering Systems maintains a fully equipped and
staffed repair facility in Ocala, Florida.

Magnetic Drive. The magnetic drive design eliminates miscoupling
associated with right angle magnetic drives. Torque is absorbed in
the undergear assembly below the driving magnet. Consequently,
the driving magnet at all flows is turning slowly, assuring magnetic
coupling with the register assembly. The undergearing is protected
by an appropriately filtered encasement.
