The OMNI meter is the most technologically advanced large water meter on the market today. The key to this optimal measurement performance is the application of the new Floating Ball Technology (FBT). FBT employs an impeller with a ball design which makes the impeller weightless in the water line. The technology enables the impeller to begin moving with very little water flow or force through the meter. The result is that OMNI has an extended flow range with better low flow sensitivity, as well as the ability to capture extended high flow rates - all with virtually no wear.
The T2 meter assembly maintains peak performance capability and continuous operation up to the rated maximum capacity flows without affecting long-term accuracy or causing any unwarranted component wear. The meter assembly also provides a 25% flow capacity in excess of the maximum flows listed for intermittent flow demands.
Conformance To Standards
The OMNI T2 meter meets and far ex- ceeds the most recent revision of AWWA Standard C701 class II standards. Each meter is performance tested to ensure compliance. All OMNI meters are NSF/ ANSI Standard 61, Annex F and G approved.
The patented measurement principles of the OMNI T2 meter assure enhanced accuracy ranges, an overall greater accuracy, and a longer service life than any other comparable class meter produced. The OMNI T2 meter has no restrictions as to sustained flow rates within its continuous operating range. The floating ball measurement technology allows for flows up to its rated maximum capacity without affecting undue wear or accuracy degradation when installed in any orientation.
The OMNI T2 meter consists of two basic assemblies; the maincase and the mea- suring chamber. The measuring chamber assembly includes the “floating ball” impeller with a coated titanium shaft, hybrid axial bearings, integral flow straightener and an all electronic programmable register with protective bonnet. The maincase is made from industry proven Ductile Iron with an approved NSF epoxy coating. Maincase features are; easily removable measuring chamber, unique chamber seal to the maincase using a high pressure o-ring, testing port and a convenient integral strainer.
Omni Electronic Register
The OMNI T2 electronic register consist of a hermetically sealed register with an electronic pickup containing no mechani- cal gearing. The large character LCD dis- plays AMR, Totalization and a Resettable Test Totalizer. OMNI register features; AMR resolution units that are fully pro- grammable, Pulse output frequency that are fully programmable, Integral customer data logging capability, Integral resettable accuracy testing feature compatible with the UniPro Testing Assistant Program, Large, easy-to-read LCD also displays both forward and reverse flow directions and all with a 10-year battery life guaran- tee.
Meter registration is achieved by utilizing a fully magnetic pickup system. This is accomplished by the magnetic actions of the embedded rotor magnets and the ultra sensitive register pickup probe. The only moving component in water is the “float- ing ball” impeller.
The revolutionary thermoplastic, hydro dynamically balanced impeller floats be- tween the bearings. The Floating Ball Technology (FBT) allows the measuring element to operate virtually without fric- tion or wear, thus creating the extended upper and lower flow ranges capable on only the OMNI T2 meter.
The OMNI T2 with the “V” shaped integral strainer using a stainless steel screen along with Floating Ball Technology (FBT) create a design that gives far improved ac- curacy even in those once thought ques- tionable settings. A removable strainer cover permits easy access to the screen for routine maintenance.
The OMNI T2 meter is designed for easy maintenance. Should any maintenance be required, the measuring chamber and / or strainer cover can be removed independently. Parts and or a replacement measuring chamber may be utilized in the event repairs are needed. Replacement Measuring Chambers Exchange are available for the OMNI T2 meters and may also be utilized for retrofitting to competitive meters to achieve increased accuracy and extended service life.
