Water loss is a constant concern for drinking water utilities. After all of the hard (and expensive) work it takes to get a purified product out of the plant, losing it to leaks and aging infrastructure before it reaches ratepayers can be problematic.
With new advanced plug-and-play real-time Smart Output communications, McCrometer’s FPI Mag Flow Meter, SPI Mag Flow Meter and Ultra Mag Flow Meter all provide a highly effective solution for automatic meter reading (AMR) and advanced meter infrastructure (AMI) in support of utility smart grids that help conserve valuable water resources, reduce expensive non-revenue water costs, and simplify daily operations and routine maintenance.
A municipal drinking water distribution system, also known as a water supply system, is used to provide fresh drinking water to residential and commercial customers and facilities around the world. A distribution system for drinking water typically begins with: a) intake of raw surface water from a reservoir or lake or b) ground water intake from wells transferred to a water treatment plant.

In an era when water scarcity, water quality and delivery costs are becoming urgent problems worldwide, the flow meter is more important than ever as a water management tool. “You can’t manage what you don’t measure,” is a simple business truism, which summarizes the growing role of flow meters in many water process applications.
McCrometer flow meters are in service worldwide — and even in outer space. From the American farmer to U.S. metropolitan water systems to subsea production systems in the North Sea to rugged industrial plants in Brazil, the Middle East and Asia, McCrometer meters are hard at work setting industry standards for the past 60 years.
The city staff of Buckhannon, West Virginia, recently ran into a situation that didn’t add up. A flow meter at one of the city’s booster stations was indicating a flow rate higher than the capacity of the station’s pumps. The staff contacted the applications team at McCrometer about its flow meter accuracy problem.
Municipal and Industrial water and wastewater treatment systems present a challenging environment in which the accurate and reliable measurement of liquid flow is essential for cost-effective plant operation.
The proper control and treatment of cooling water is essential for efficient, safe, and economical operations. Chemicals are fed to these systems that protect against fouling, corrosion, and microbiological contamination. The proper dosage of these key chemicals is determined by having accurate information on the system make-up and blowdown water.
When choosing an electromagnetic flow meter, it’s important to consider a selection process that will provide the best possible solution for your flow meter application. Electromagnetic flow meters are typically the meter of choice when considering cost, accuracy, and longevity.
Visitors to the 2015 World Ag Expo will want to stop by Booths 2415-16 in Pavilion B to experience the McCrometer CONNECT TrendView App, which conveniently connects growers and irrigators to their crops anytime/anywhere to help bust the drought and much more.
If your flow meter is costing you time and money ... and that all adds up to real operational headaches, then you might want to hear what four McCrometer customers who installed the FPI Mag Flow Meter have to say about this problem-solving flow instrument.
A large percentage of the flow meters purchased for municipal water plants are replacements for older meters in existing facilities or distribution systems. It’s a common practice to replace aging meters with the same technology, often from the same manufacturer.
Ashley Valley Water & Sewer Improvement District Relies On FPI Mag Flow Meter To Comply With Allocation Quota
Ashley Valley Water & Sewer Improvement District (AVWSID) serves rural county residents who live outside the city of Vernal, Utah.
DM Petroleum Operations Relies On FPI Mag Flow Meter For Tough U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve Application
New tests recently performed by DM Petroleum Operations Company with the FPI Mag® Flow Meter from McCrometer continue to confirm the flow meter’s accurate performance and reliability on two rugged Texas brine disposal lines supporting the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR).

McCrometer’s flow measurement solutions are found in thousands of installations worldwide including Municipal/Industrial Water & Waste, Agriculture and Turf Irrigation, Institutional Facilities applications and many more. Its products and systems meet many of the world’s most demanding safety and quality standards.
Industries & Applications
Municipal/Industrial Water & Waste
McCrometer offers the industry’s preferred liquid flow measurement solution for both clean and waste water applications. The VM V-Cone® System is a perfect fit for water and wastewater treatment applications, with built-in flow conditioning for high accuracy and a rugged no moving parts technology that operates over a wide turndown range.
Agriculture & Turf Irrigation
Flow measurement plays a vital role in agriculture and turf irrigation. McCrometer's 50 years of industry experience resulted in the best-selling irrigation flow meter in the US, the Mc® Propeller meter. Mc Propeller meters play a vital role by helping farmers conserve water resources and optimize irrigation for improved crop yields and soil conservation.
Institutional facilities users require flow meter solutions that maintain accuracy in steam and chilled water applications to meet today’s increasingly tight government regulations. McCrometer’s V-Cone® advanced differential pressure flow meter is exceptionally precise in both steam and chilled water systems.
The Ultra Mag® Flow Meter is a precision electromagnetic instrument designed specifically to meet the liquid flow needs of the municipal water and wastewater industry. With innovative features, such as a state-of-the-art microprocessor-based signal converter, it delivers exceptional reliability, durability and ±0.5% accuracy. The flow meter’s unique NSF-approved UltraLiner™ provides superior electrical insulation as well as excellent protection against corrosion and abrasion.
The Water Specialties Propeller Meters™ are designed and manufactured with precise techniques and high quality components. They offer superior performance, low maintenance and unsurpassed durability. Meter materials and flow ranges for low velocity construction meet or exceed AWWA standard C704/92.
The patented V-Cone® Flow Meter solves challenging fluid applications, and operates in some of the harshest environments. This advanced differential pressure-type (DP) flow meter offers high accuracy and repeatability, flexible installation, and little to no maintenance for the widest range of fluids.
The FPI Mag™ (Full Profile Insertion) Electromagnetic Flow Meter is the only hot tap full profile insertion flow meter available on the market. The FPI Mag installs without service interruption making it ideal for retrofits, upgrades and maintenance projects and sites never before metered. The hot tap installation significantly reduces installation time eliminating the need to de-water lines or cut pipe.
Unlike traditional propeller meters, the Mc Propeller uses a flexible drive-train and sealed ball bearings. Its unique design makes it easy to service in the field and requires no external power or batteries. The Mc Propeller is designed to comply with AWWA standard No. C704/08. Standard features include an instantaneous flow rate indicator and six-digit totalizer.
The FS100 Flow Straightener provides breakthrough flow straightening technology that virtually eliminates the upstream / downstream straight pipe runs typically required in existing or new flow meter applications. Requiring only 1.5 straight pipe diameters upstream and 0-0.5 downstream, the FS100 Flow Straightener when installed with the McPropeller slashes typical installation piping and labor costs by more than 50 percent, which makes it the right fit in both retrofit and brand new installations.
