Abell Combustion Introduces New Dattus III Gas Meter

Abell Combustion, in Kimberton, Pa, adds Itron Dattus gas meters to its product offering. These meters offer the capabilities of rotary meters without any moving parts. Unlike a Rotary or Turbine meter, the Dattus Meter does not require oil and will not lock up from pipeline debris. Standard features include configurable pulse outputs (0.07 cu. Ft/pulse capable) and fixed pressure correction.

Operational Advantages:

Safety - Because the DATTUS uses solid-state technology, the meter cannot "lock up" or stop gas flow. This may be necessary in some applications such as gas measurement for hospitals, schools, or other applications where continuous gas service may be critical.
Robustness - The DATTUS meter may be subjected to many times its rated capacity without any damage to the meter.

Application - Without mechanical elements impeding gas flow, the meter performs very well in application where slam-shut or slam-open loads are created because of the downstream equipment used.

Ease of Installation - Having completely aligned flanges is not necessary, nor is leveling of the meter. Neither torsion on the meter case or a non-level setting will affect meter performance.

Low Maintenance - Since the DATTUS meter doesn't have any rotating or moving parts, there are no associated maintenance requirements, such as oil changes that may be required for other meter types. Batteries are the only regular maintenance item for DATTUS, with battery life expectancy at nine to ten years for the DATTUS Basic and Basic TC models.
