GAS TURBINE METERS

An American Pioneer In Gas Measurement

Accuracy, repeatability, rangeability and flow range


make gas turbine meters the preferred choice in an
increasing number of gas measurement applications.
American Meters gas turbine meters, first introduced
in 1968, now serve the gas industry in installations
throughout the world.
American Meters gas turbines incorporate refinements
in design learned from years of application experience.
Refinements that improve performance and reduce the
cost of maintenance and ownership. Our gas turbines
offer a mechanical output to drive a wide variety of
auxiliary devices such as base volume correctors,
plus electronic pulse outputs to interface with flow
computers. Low-, medium- and high-pressure models
are available in 3-inch through 12-inch sizes. Direct
replacement for specified 4", 6" and 8" Equimeter
models are also available.

Options
Mechanical Drive Output
Mechanical and Electronic Pulse Outputs
Temperature Compensation
Standard and Extended Capacity Ranges with 45
or 30 Rotors

Calibration Facilities
The American Meter gas turbine meter line is
supported by three calibration facilities available
for low-, medium- and high-pressure testing and
re-certifications.
Low Pressure
Atmospheric-pressure air testing is done on a high
capacity sonic nozzle prover and on a 350-cubic foot
(10-cubic meter) bell prover. Accuracy of the provers
is traceable to the U.S. National Institute of Standards
and Technology (formerly the National Bureau of
Standards). Flow rates to 130,000 cubic feet per hour
(370 cubic meters per hour).
Medium Pressure
Medium-pressure testing is conducted on a
recirculating air loop at pressures to 150 psi (10 bar).
The loop is available for certification or re-certification
of meter performance under actual operating pressures. Certified master turbine meters are the
reference standards.
High Pressure
American Meters high-pressure test station, located
at a gas storage field in northwestern Pennsylvania,
is 30 minutes from the manufacturing plant. Test
pressures to 750 psi (50 bar) and higher are available.
Master turbine meters tested in Europe and at Southwest Research Institute are used as reference meters.

Features And Benefits (GTS and E-Class Meters)


1 Models with Extended Capacity Ratings can
reduce the diameter of an entire meter run, resulting
in substantial savings in piping, flanges, block
valves, etc. See Capacity Tables.
2 Mechanical Drive Models for use with P&T Correctors
or Electronic Pulse Output Models to interface
directly with popular flow computers.
3 Electronic Temperature Compensation with Fixed
Factor Pressure.
4 Flush-Type Lubrication System flushes main
bearings while meter is in operation.
5 Aluminum Rotors for high pressure models and
for meters with high-frequency pulse outputs.
3

6 One Output Gear Train for all meter sizes; reduces


spare parts inventory.
7 High-Efficiency Inlet Flo-Guide flow conditioners
to minimize the effects of flow disturbances in
short coupled installations.
8 High-Frequency RF-Type Pulser that monitors rotor
condition.
9 Interchangeable Pre-Calibrated Measurement
Cartridges for easy maintenance.
10 Pre-Machined Meter Housings to allow upgrade
to AccuTest self-test model.
11 Direct Equimeter Turbine Meter Replacement with
new E-Class models.
