The new Cordonel® ultrasonic flow meter from Sensus, a Xylem brand, helps water utilities, industries and agriculturalists better manage water distribution networks by accurately capturing and measuring water consumption, flow, temperature and pressure. The commercial and industrial (C&I) meter has no moving parts or obstruction to the flow and is maintenance-free over its operational lifetime.

“A more sustainable water future starts today by accurately accounting for and measuring every drop and identifying non-revenue water,” said Berry Drijsen, Product Marketing Director, EMEA & Asia Pacific. “We designed Cordonel to bring customers a reliable, accurate meter that scales with them into a digitally-enabled water distribution management system.”

The Cordonel static flow meter goes beyond traditional meter reading to gather precise low and high flow data in real-time. The combination of advanced ultrasonic technology and integrated communications makes it a great C&I meter for both Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) and Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) with support for a variety of radio communications technologies.

Dependable technology and precision engineering

The sturdy and reliable Cordonel meter can help customers increase revenue, improve operational efficiency and save natural resources.

  • Flexibility to accommodate virtually all commercial, industrial and agricultural needs, including horizontal and vertical pipe orientations with no straight upstream and downstream pipe required, even behind a 90-degree bend.
  • Built-in communication technology that eliminates the need to maintain and replace the separate meter and radio devices on staggered schedules. Cordonel can also be easily integrated with the Sensus FlexNet™ long-range radio solution.
  • Accurate, reliable readings over its 20-year battery life——enabled by new technology that ensures all water entering passes through one of its three individual measuring paths.
  • Secure data transfer using 128-bit AES encryption.

The new meter is now available in Germany in diameter 50. Larger sizes—up to 300 mm—will follow over the next two years.
