Accuracy of Sensus Auto-Adjust Turbo Gas Meters Protects Utility Revenue

desc

RALEIGH , N.C., Jan. 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sensus, a leading provider of clean technology solutions, has deployed its Auto-Adjust® Turbo-Meter (AAT) at hundreds of gas utilities globally. The industry-leading meter ensures consistent meter reading and billing accuracy in the face of unseen pipeline flow conditions.

"When a meter does not read accurately, the utility will either under- or over-bill customers. Either way, someone is losing out," said Chris Wykle, director of gas marketing at Sensus. "AAT meters are designed to adjust whenever an issue is detected and maintain accurate readings. These meters protect our utilities and their commercial customers from tens of thousands of dollars in over- or under-charges."

Routine checks can detect some reading problems but cannot determine how long the problem has existed or its impact. AAT meters ensure continuous accuracy under all circumstances, all the time. Sensus AAT meters use patented dual rotor technology that self-checks and automatically adjusts meter performance. The advanced technology sends an alarm for deteriorating conditions and begins mitigating accuracy issues well before they can affect the customer.

Now, the meters tell the utility instantly when there is an issue and reads are automatically adjusted back to factory accuracy.

Additional information can be found in a case study located on the Sensus website.
