Market analyses have predicted that in the next few years mechanical meters will see a decline in production and sales as two proven technologies make their way into the utility and municipality market. Once considered too costly and limited to certain applications, ultrasonic and electromagnetic meters have made many great strides over the past few years; now offering cost effective alternatives to traditional mechanical meters.
It has long been known that as mechanical meters age, their accuracy begins to drop. The primary reason often being excessive wear to the mechanical components that measure water. But with solid-state technology, such as ultrasonic and mag meters, there are no moving parts measuring water or within the register, resulting in longer meter accuracy.
As you take a closer look and begin considering solid-state technology to serve your metering needs, you will see why market trends point to tremendous growth in the coming years.
