Advanced Metering Analytics
Beyond management of meter data, Advanced Metering Analytics (AMA) transforms reading data into actionable intelligence for proactive decision making. AMA provides increased visibility, efficiency, and faster notifications and resolution of issues.
Automated Meter Reading
With an Automated Meter Reading (AMR) or mobile system, ORION endpoints transmit meter reading and event data via radio frequency to a mobile receiver or transceiver when the device is within range of the endpoint’s signal during drive-by or walk-by reading. Mobile reading software collects data and synchronizes with BEACON AMA hosted software.
Automotive Flow Meters
Used to measure a variety of fluids in the automotive industry including engine oil, engine coolant, automatic transmission fluid and wiper fluid, Automotive Flow Meters are designed to control and monitor consumption and inventory supplies of automotive
Calibrators | Calibration Services
The performance of a flow meter changes over time due to a wide range of factors and calibration data can expose those unknowns. Calibration products and services are necessary to maintain accuracy of these precision instruments.
Cellular/Fixed Network Solutions
Fixed Network Solutions use secure, commercial cellular or proprietary communication networks that provide near real-time meter data to the analytics system, enabling proactive management of the operation and process improvement.
Badger Meter concrete products represent a range of technologies, including flow meters, dispensing and batching equipment and concrete consolidation tools, for a variety of applications (including redi-mix, truck meters and concrete finishing).
Coriolis Mass Flow Meters
The RCT1000 Coriolis mass flow meter identifies flow rate by directly measuring fluid mass over a wide range of temperatures with a high degree of accuracy. For fluids consisting of two liquids or a liquid with suspended solids, this system can derive the concentration and mass of each fluid based on the density measurement. The unobstructed, open-flow design makes it suitable for a variety of fluids, such as slurries and other viscous, nonconductive fluids.
Differential Pressure Flow Meters
Differential Pressure (DP) flow meters introduce a constriction in the pipe that creates a pressure drop across the flow meter. This technology is suitable for applications including DP measurement across filters, heat exchangers, backflow preventers, pipelines, ducts and more.
Electromagnetic Flow Meters
Electromagnetic Flow Meters manage critical flow applications to improve accuracy, decrease system maintenance and meet the demands of challenging liquid conditions. This volumetric flow meter does not have any moving parts and is ideal for wastewater applications or any dirty liquid that is conductive or water-based.
Encoders convert flow data into an electronic format for storage and transmission to AMR/AMI/AMA endpoints and industrial network systems. Badger Meter offers the latest innovation in both mechanical and electronic high resolution encoders.

Industrial Gear Flow Meters
Industrial gear flow meters are designed for a variety of chemical applications including petroleum based fluids, water solutions and any other liquid compatible with the materials of construction. A variety of positive displacement meter, they are built to withstand harsh environments, including flooded pits, through unique adhesive sealing technology.
Badger Meter offers a wide range of instrumentation devices that can be mounted directly to a meter. Registers are available in both mechanical and electronic models. Analog, pulse or encoder type transmitters produce electronic output for radio transmitters, reading storage devices and data logging devices.
Nutating Disc Meters
Nutating disc meters are the most common and accurate type of positive displacement meters. The simple and reliable operating principle allows water to flow into the chamber, which causes the disc to nutate. Each disc nutation represents a fixed quantity of water, so the total flow is calculated by the total number of nutations.
Open Channel flow meters measure level, flow rate and total volume of water flowing through weirs, flumes, channels and partially filled pipes. The flow meters use a non-contact level sensor to detect the water level and then calculates the flow rate and volume using the Manning equation and characteristics of the channel. Open channel flow meters perform best where the sediment does not build up.
Oscillating Piston Meters
Using a precision-machined chamber containing a cylindrical piston that oscillates as liquid flows through it, Oscillating Piston Meters are ideal for food and beverage, chemical and other sanitary applications.
Turbine Flow Meters
Turbine flow meters use the mechanical energy of the liquid to rotate a rotor in the flow stream. The rotational speed of the rotor is directly proportional to the velocity of the fluid travelling through the meter. These meters are used in multiple industries to reliably measure the velocity of a variety of liquids, gases and vapors.
Ultrasonic Flow Meters
Ultrasonic flow meters are inferential meters that uses ultrasonic technology to measure the velocity of an acoustically conductive liquid moving through it. There are two types of ultrasonic flow meter technologies: Doppler shift and transit-time.
Transit-time measures the time differential between signals sent upstream and downstream. The differential is directly proportional to the velocity of the water. Transit-time meters are best used for measuring the flow of clean liquids and, as a result, are the most popular type of ultrasonic meter. Doppler shift measures the difference in frequency of the sound wave reflected off gas bubbles or particles in the flow stream and is suitable for aerated or dirty liquids.
Precision valve products are used to control the flow of liquids, gas and steam in a variety of industrial applications including: chemical, petrochemical, bio-tech, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, general industrial, and research. Customers depend on valves for precise, repeatable performance.
Variable Area Flow Meters
Variable Area Flow Meters measure volumetric flow of liquids and gases. This technology is based on the variable area principle, where flow raises a float in a tube, increasing the area for passage of the fluid through the meter.
Vortex flow meters utilize the smallest strut in the industry, which allows for high levels of sensitivity; superior performance at low flow rates; high turndown ratios; and low pressure drop. Through the use of an internal RTD and an external pressure sensor (optional), the flow meter software will compensate for changes in pressure and temperature, to achieve an accurate mass flow measurement (gas meters).
Vortex flow meters are suitable for measuring steam as well as a variety of liquids and gases. As fluid moves across a vortex meter shedder bar, vortices form. The frequency of the vortices shedding is proportional to the fluid velocity.
