Elster reports that the V210 volumetric polymer meter “offers long-life and high accuracy over a wide operating range. With its polymer body, the V210 meter has approximately one-third the carbon footprint of its brass body counterparts. The product forms an integral part of Elster’s advanced metering system and has been approved to the latest European Directive (2004/22/EC) and associated European and international standards.”
The V210 polymer meter is the first water meter to achieve compliance with the UK Water Industry Specification 4-32-19 making it suitable for all installations. Elster received a Product Innovation Award for the V210 during the 2010 Metering Europe conference.
Lee Tanner, procurement contracts manager for Bristol Water, says, “Wessex Water, Bristol Water and Sembcorp Bournemouth Water have awarded the contract for domestic and small commercial water meters to Elster after they achieved the highest score against our evaluation criteria. We look forward to the imminent installation of these innovative polymer meters from Elster.”
Tim Gabriel, senior vice president operations of Elster’s global water business, adds: “The innovative V210 volumetric polymer meter with high accuracy and long-life represents the latest technology in water meters.”
