How Does A Hot Water Multijet Meter Works?
The way a multijet meter for hot water operates is just amazing.
The water flows into the measuring chamber through the meter’s strainer. The flow of water drives the meter’s impeller.
The motion of the impeller is transmitted to the airtight register by a magnet located inside the chamber.
The total water usage is then translated to the register for reading.
The material used to build a multi-jet hot water meter are very durable. They are able to withstand temperatures up to 194 degrees. Only this type of water meter will actually produce and accurate reading under these "hot" situations.
