Principles of Operation

Romet measurement devices utilize positive displacement rotary technology. Rotary technology relies on the rotation of two figure eight-shaped impellers to perform the measurement operation. These impellers have shafts held in low friction bearings, positioned 90 degrees in relation to each other by precision timing gears.

The impellers contra-rotates in semi-cylindrical housings enclosed by head plates at either end. Precise tolerances and timing gears ensure that an effective capillary seal is achieved while ensuring that the impellers and housing do not come in contact.

As gas enters the inlet of the meter, a pressure differential is created from the inlet and outlet of the meter, causing the impellers to rotate. The volume displaced by each revolution of the impellers is transmitted to a final module readout to begin collecting and organizing the generated data.
By building advanced technologies into their rotary meter and providing unparalleled quality, Romet has established themselves as one of the most trusted and dependable rotary gas meters and energy measurement companies in North America.
