Do you have the oldest Litre Meter Pelton Wheel flow meter in service?

11 June 2010

Custom flow meter manufacturer and distributor Litre Meter is celebrating 35 years of continuous manufacture of its Pelton Wheel flow meter by seeking out the oldest instrument still in use. Litre Meter is offering a luxury weekend break to whoever sends in the oldest meter for repair or recalibration.
Litre Meter began manufacturing Pelton Wheel flow meters, which provide accurate measurement of low flow rate, back in 1975. Since then they have been used in a variety of applications ranging from measuring the flow of water into the boilers of a world record breaking steam car to precisely measuring the flow of gasoline in an automotive fuel injection test rig for Delphi (pictured).

It is easy to identify the age of the meter. Each one is marked with a unique serial number in the format xx/xxxxx. The oldest working meters are likely to have numbers that begin xx/x4xxx, xx/x3xxx, xx/x2xxx or xx/x1xxx.

Litre Meter chairman Charles Wemyss said: “To help Litre Meter celebrate the continued success of the Pelton Wheel meter and to demonstrate its accuracy, reliability and versatility we are looking for the oldest one sent in by one of our customers for repair or recalibration.

“We are confident of finding many meters still in use that have been running well beyond 20 years. We have already had one candidate. Crown Packaging recently returned a meter for repair that has been in use since February 1986.”

If you think you have the oldest Pelton Wheel in your facility please contact Litre Meter. The winner will enjoy a luxury European weekend break for two with spending money. “With more than 30,000 meters currently in use there are a lot of people in with a chance. All Pelton Wheel LM & MM meters returned for repair or recalibration before 31 March 2011 are automatically entered and the competition is open not only to customers from the UK but also worldwide,” added Charles Wemyss.
