Painting is polyester powder plastics coating which is


tropicalized and suitable for both indoor and outdoor installation
considering heavy rainfall and humid condition.

Painting color: Grey or any other neutral color to be approved by


client

The gas meters made by Hangzhou Beta Gas meter Co., Ltd.,
which are printed with polyester powder plastics coating, have
more stronger ability to against the heavy humidity and rainfall.

There is a gas flow direction mark on top case of the meter and
also a prevent-reverse hook inside of the meter against the
illegal dismantle and stealing and reverse installation.

-200C to +400C
G1.6 H225xW195xD170 mm
G1.6 2.0 kg
We can supply the meter with fire resistance according to
BS4161 part 5

We use a complete band to close the meter to prevent


unauthorized dismantling, there are no any screws, nuts and
bolts, rivets or other fastening are used in the banding.

We can provide the test certificates of the test result of the


accuracy of registration of each meter at Qmin, 0.2Qmax and
Qmax flow rates
Material construction is in conformity with BS4161 part 5,1990
and OIML R31.

OK, we can print the Custom name on the index, but you should
provide your marks for our design the new nameplate.
In our export packing, we often use one individual box for each
meter and six boxes in one master carton, and 42 cartons on one
pallet with nylon plastic wrapped, to avoid the impact and
raining.
Valid ISO 9001 issued by TUV management Service GmbH
(Germany)

Now our gas meters have been registered in Malaysia and


Hungary. Now our sample meters are being tested in NMI
(Holland laboratory) applied by one of our client, now some
testing have finished, including , we will get the certificates of
EEC, OIML and Holland pattern approval by the end of June
and because EN1359 required more 3000 hours endurance test,
so we will get EN1359 certificate by the end of this year.
