How To Get Greater Accuracy With Lower Flows In Commercial And Industrial Meters


For many water utilities, commercial and industrial (C&I) meters comprise around 10% or fewer of the total meters in service. Yet these end users can represent between 40% and 60% of the total water distributed. Traditional C&I meters, which are largely mechanical, typically struggle to detect low flows. Even worse, in the wake of the COVID pandemic, large numbers of commercial buildings remain partially or largely empty, making low flows a larger part of the equation.

To address this, many utilities install a second meter dedicated to low flows, which increases costs as well as introduces the risk of mathematical errors. In addition, many C&I meters need to be installed in difficult or tight spaces, making it challenging to get the necessary amount of upstream and downstream straight pipe needed for accurate measurements.

Thankfully, new technologies are helping mitigate these issues and more. Sensus’ Cordonel is an advanced commercial and industrial (C&I) ultrasonic meter with exceptional turndown ratios, water conditioning, and other features that are lowering operating costs, increasing revenue, and minimizing maintenance.
