Requirements for meters for liquids other than water



TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS FOR METERS FOR LIQUIDS OTHER THAN WATER



1.



The DEFINITION of the



1.1 the minimum delivery means the smallest volume of liquid, which can be

measured by a certain type of gauge.



1.2 the cyclic volume is the volume of liquid corresponding to the operating cycle

measuring equipment, IE. Summary of movements at the end of all

internal moving parts of the measuring device returns for the first time in their

initial positions.



1.3 Periodic variance means the maximum difference, during one

the working cycle between the volume displaced movable parts and

the corresponding volume shown on the indicating device that is

connected to a measuring instrument without play so that it points to the end of the cycle and for this

the cycle of the volume, which is equal to the cyclic volume. This difference can be reduced

a suitable calibration device.



1.4 the Adjustment is the activity of the measuring instrument to the listed

the State that is suitable for its use.



1.5 the adjustment device is part of the measuring device, which the device can be

appropriately set up to measure correctly.



2.



COUNTER



2.1 meters must incorporate a counter that shows the

the measured volume in cm3 or mm3, in l or dm3 or m3.



2.2 If the counter Has one or more elements, then the one whose scale is

marked with a minimum tick, is called the "first element".



2.3 conversion between the counter and the measuring device must be reliable,

durable and mediated by a mechanical connection or device with

permanent magnet.



2.4 Reading the data must be reliable, easy and unambiguous. If

the counter consists of several elements, as a whole, must be constructed in such a

to read data may be carried out by simple comparison of data from the

different elements.



2.5. The maximum capacity of the counter must match the value of 1 x 10 ^ n, 2 x

10 ^ n or 5 x 10 ^ n valid units of volume, n being a whole positive

or a negative number, or zero.



2.6 moving an element can either be a continuous (smooth) or discontinuous

(intermittent-increments).



2.7 if the movable part element has a continuous movement, the Division

the scale and the zero mark to allow the determination of the measured quantity for each

the position in which the element could stop.



2.8. The value scale intervals on the first element must match the value 1 x

10 ^ n, 2 x 10 ^ n or 5 x 10 ^ n valid units of volume.



2.9 the except element that corresponds to the maximum capacity of the counter, you must

one rotation of the element match the value 10 ^ n valid units of volume,

If it is fully visible graduated scale on this element.



2.10 if the element of a fixed circular scale and a rotating pointer,

must rotate indicator in a clockwise direction.



2.11 the counter with several elements must each turn moving parts

elements whose scale is fully visible, correspond to the value of the interval

the scale of the next element.



2.12 on the indicating device, with few elements must be an indication of the element with

a discontinuous movement, in addition to the first element to scroll by one figure,

While the preceeding element more than one-tenth of its

turns. This movement forward must cease when the previous element

shows zero.



2.13 it is to counter a few elements, and if the only see part of the

the scale of the second element and the elements following the movement of the other elements,

must be interrupted so that you can see in the window, the whole part of the relevant

element. Movement of the first element may be continuous or discontinuous.



2.14 if the indication given by the digits in a straight line and if the movement of the first

the element is discontinuous, it is permissible to indicate one or more fixed zero's

to the right of this element.



2.15 if in the window to see only part of the scale of the first element and

If this element has a continuous movement, may arise from the resulting

ambiguity in the reading, which should be deleted. For this reason, and in order to

to allow for reading by interpolation, may not have the appropriate box in parallel with

the movement of the scale dimension less than 1.5 times the distance between the

the Centre lines of two consecutive graduation marks, moving so

It is always seen at least two graduation marks, one of which will be

have a digit. Screen may be due to the zero mark asymmetric.



2.16 Marks on scales must have the same thickness, constant throughout the

the length of the tag, which does not exceed a quarter of the distance between the Centre

lines of two consecutive marks. Tags that correspond to the values

1 x 10 ^ n, 2 x 10 ^ n or 5 x 10 ^ n force units, are to be distinguished

the only difference in their lengths.



2.17 the distance between the axes of two consecutive graduation marks

shall not be less than 2 millimeters.



2.18 the height of the figures must not be less than 4 millimetres.



3.



ADJUSTMENT DEVICE



3.1 Meters must incorporate a calibrating device which can

alter the relationship between reported and actual volumes of liquids

passing through the meter.



3.2 If the adjustment device changes this relationship in a discontinuous manner, not after

the successive increments of this relationship never differ by more than 0.002

the values of the nominal flow.



3.3 Editing on a gauge enabling the bypass are disabled.



4.



SPECIAL CONDITIONS CONCERNING THE MINIMUM DELIVERY



4.1 the minimum delivery must be such that none of these values was not

greater than the maximum permissible error for such delivery, as

except as expressly stated in sections 10.2 and 10.3:



and the volume of the corresponding movement of two) millimetres on the scale of the first element

counter and one fifth of the value of the scale interval on the scale, if the first

the element has a continuous movement;



(b)) the volume corresponding to two consecutive movements of the digits, if

the first element has a discontinuous movement;



c) error that is normally caused by a clearance or offset

the drive between the measuring device and the first element of the counter;



d) twice the periodic variation.



4.2 when determining this minimum delivery should also be taken into account,

where necessary, the additional components on the measuring device,

in accordance with the requirements laid down in the Decree concerning this

the measuring device.
