A gas meter is used to measure the volume of fuel gases such as natural gas and propane. Gas meters are used at residential, commercial, and industrial buildings that consume fuel gas supplied by a gas utility. Gases are more difficult to measure than liquids, as measured volumes are highly affected by temperature and pressure. Gas meters measure a defined volume, regardless of the pressurized quantity or quality of the gas flowing through the meter. Temperature, pressure and heating value compensation must be made to measure actual amount and value of gas moving through a meter.
Several different designs of gas meters are in common use ie Diaphragm type, Rotary type , & RPD Meters, depending on the volumetric flow rate & Working Pressure of gas to be measured, the range of flows anticipated, the type of gas being measured and other factors.
