Ask a Question
  • What is the operating pressure of this meter

    Our 1.5" Gas Meter has a maximum operating pressure of 4.35 psi (this is 0.3 bars).  It has a minimum operating pressure of 0.0435 psi.  Here is the spec sheet for this meter.

  • Are your Gas meters approved for use by UL and CSA?

    No, our gas meters have not received and specific certifications from either UL or CSA.

  • Can it be installed in doors

    We do not recommend that you install our gas meters indoors.  There is a slight chance that the gas meter could leak and cause a dangerous explosion, so we are not able to recommend that you install them indoors.  They should always be installed in a well ventilated area away from any sources of flame.  The installation should also be checked to make sure that there are no gas leaks.  A soapy water solution works well for this, spray it on all fittings and joints, then look for bubbles.

  • Can this meter be used indoors?

    Officially we don't recommend that you install our gas meters indoors. That being said, the circumstances of each installation are different, and should inform your decision regarding where to install the gas meter(s). While we can’t assure you that the indoor installation of our gas meter is safe, it is kind of a grey area industry-wide. This from inspectapedia.com explains the issue:

    "Gas meter location: gas meters are located outdoors except when special permission is given by the gas company. Indoor gas meters increase the risk of an indoor gas leak, require special venting, and can make it more dangerous to shut off gas in an emergency.”

    The risk, as stated above, is indoor gas leaks. To minimize the risk, the compartment in which the gas meter is located should have free venting to outside air and be sealed from other indoor areas. But, bottom line, there is an increased risk of problems with any indoor gas meter installation, and that risk is assumed by whoever makes the decision to place the meter indoors. Our recommendation, as always, is to place the meter outdoors.

  • Is it possible to read a pulse every .1 cu. ft?

    It is not possible to easily modify our 3/4" or 1.5" gas meters to pulse at a faster rate.  If you do find a 3rd party pulse output gas meter that pulses at a faster rate then you can still use it with our Omnimeter Pulse v.4 pulse counting system.
