Veeder-Root Mechanical Register

Alpeco recommends the Veeder Root mechanical register combined with Liquid Controls flow meters to enable mechanical metering 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.

The Veeder Root System for Mechanical Flow Metering

Mechanical Register Features

Robust & Accurate

The Veeder-Root register is a very robust and highly accurate option for metering applications. It has bulletproof construction for maximum dependability at high delivery speeds and the built-in precision totalizer means accurate readings up to 99,999,999 units.

With optional ancillaries

The Veeder-Root system is made up of three components the Register, Preset and Printer. The register has a large 5 digital numerical counter and built-in non-resettable precision totalizer and can be supplied with other commonly supplied ancillaries such as: printer, pre-set and two stage valve, inlet strainer, air eliminator and mechanical temperature compensation device.

Can be fitted with Pulse Output Devices

The Mechanical counter can also be fitted with a Veeder-Root 1871 or 7671 pulse output device for applications which require data transmission to remote computers or fuel management systems.


  • Speed: 250 rpm of right Register wheel.
  • Drive Torque: During counting, average running torque at room temperature with a 1:1 ratio gear plate is 4 oz.-in. (2.8 N-cm). During display wheel transfer from all 9’s to all 0’s, the torque may reach 16 oz.-in. (11.3 N-cm).
