Mechanical Flow Meters

Alpeco supply mechanical flow meters for situations where electronic metering is not possible.

We use Liquid Controls positive displacement flow meters combined with Veeder-Root mechanical registers to enable mechnical flow metering.

The Veeder-Root mechanical registers have been the industry standard for metering for many years and can be fitted to flowmeters for all types of road tanker, fuel depot and plant installations.

They are ideal for situation where basic stand-alone metering is required or where the site or environment doesn’t readily support the installation of more complex electronic registers and control systems as one of the main benefits is that no power is required to run the mechanical head.
