    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Sets out requirements for water meters for use in non-urban applications. It primarily covers metering for irrigation water; however, it is intended that it be used for non-urban water applications other than applications covered by AS 3565.1.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Australian Technical Specification sets out requirements for water meters for use in non-urban applications. It primarily covers metering for irrigation water; however, it is intended that it be used for non-urban water applications other than applications covered by AS 3565.1.Two types of meters are covered in this Australian Technical Specification, as follows:(a) A meter that defines its own geometry and is pattern-approved by a single supplier.(b) A meter that is a device or a group of instruments that, as supplied, are individually pattern-approved, do not define the geometry and require calibration after installation. Purchasing guidelines are given in Appendix A.The Australian Technical Specification applies to meters that operate under the following conditions:(i) Closed conduit under full flow.(ii) Pressure ranges minimum 0.03 MPa to a value specified by the manufacturer. As a minimum, insertion or clamp-on meters will need to have the same working pressure range as the pipes they are designed to operate in.(iii) Working water temperature range of 0.1°C to 30°C. The maximum admissible temperature is 50°C, which is the limiting condition for the meter.(iv) Ambient air temperature range of (5°C to 55°C.(v) Ambient humidity range of 0% to 100% except for remote indicating devices where the range is 0% to 93%.This Australian Technical Specification is applicable to meters that are self-contained and capable of continuously determining, within the accuracy limits, the volume of water that has flowed through them, and that are continuously indicating the volume on a cumulative basis.
