Description: Zenner G4 Gas Meter
There is no other gas meter available in the american market that is as compact as this Gas Meter.
This is a positive displacement diaphragm type gas meter rated for 212 SCFH (Standard Cubic Feet per Hour) of AIR
This is equivalent to 264 CFH of Natural Gas, capable of measuring Natural Gas Burners and Appliances up to 264,000 BTU’s
Propane gas, capable of measuring LPG Gas Burners and Appliances up to 436,000 BTU’s
Applications: It is the same type of meter that a utility uses to bill residential and small commercial customers just smaller and compact.
It is ideal for sub-metering space that is leased out, doing energy monitoring on specific pieces of equipment or for lab usage to monitor totalized flow of a process.
Gas is measured in cubic FEET with a 4 digit black odometer index for cubic feet and a 1 digit red odometer index for fractions of cubic feet
The Gas Meter odometer index can be read to 1 liter accuracy (equivalent to 61 cubic inches).
This means it can measure the gas usage of a pilot light on a furnace or water heater.
Odometer index is much clearer to read than the old fashioned dial type .
It is customarily used on natural gas, propane or air, but can also be used on other dry gases such as dry CO2, Nitrogen or Propane/Air. It can measure all types of gases,
NATURAL GAS: 264 CFH of Natural Gas, capable of measuring Natural Gas Burners and Appliances up to 264,000 BTU’s
LPG or PROPANE GAS: 436 CFH of LPG or Propane gas, capable of measuring LPG Gas Burners and Appliances up to 436,000 BTU’s
It can be installed in gas lines up to 7,2 PSI of pressure.
A typical Natural gas Line is 7″ WC.
A typical LPG gas Line is 11″ WC.
MORE TECH TRIVIA
The average heat value of natural gas is 1000 BTU per cubic foot. A BTU (British Thermal Unit) is enough heat to heat one pound of water one degree (F). Natural gas is sold to the customer in units of 100 cubic feet (therm) or in a unit called MCF.
A therm represents approx. 100,000 BTU of heating power, enough to heat a normal home for about 2hours during colder weather. MCF is ten therms, or 1 million BTU’s.
Natural Gas is delivered to the customer at a very low pressure, usually less than 1/2 PSI. The pressure is expressed in Water Column (WC), where 28″ WC = 1 PSI.
It is customarily used on natural gas, propane or air, but can also be used on other dry gases such as Dry CO2, Nitrogen or Propane/Air. It can measure all types of gases ,

Features: The shell is with aluminum alloy with advanced powder coating surface treatment which makes it possible to install outdoors or indoors.
This amazingly compact gas meter designed for residential or lab use and it can be connected to the existing gas network via 3/4″ NPT ports . It is so sensitive it can measure the gas consumed by a lighted pilot.
