Model 4460 Features and Benefits
How it Operates
The fuel to be measured enters the meter at one side and passes freely through the measuring chamber in a corkscrew path. As it passes, it causes the disc to nutate so that the pin in the ball hub describes a circle. The tip of this pin drives the gear train that, in turn, drives the register mechanism at a rate that is proportional to the volume passing through the meter For this meter, we have engineered gear trains for gasoline in U.S. gallons and tenths, imperial gallons and tenths, and liters and tenths; and others for diesel and/ or kerosene in U.S. gallons and tenths, Imperial gallons and tenths, and liters and tenths.
The meter body can be arranged at the factory for installation in either vertical or horizontal piping runs. Inlet and outlet are always 180o apart. Specify if inlet should be at 12, 3, 6, or 9 o’clock as you face the register.
- Mounting position will not affect the meter’s accuracy.
- Inlet and outlet are 1-1/2” NPT.
