Sensus delivers groundbreaking metering technology

Keeping in the Sensus tradition for technological advances in the water metering market, the leading edge metrology for the OMNI meter is the “Floating Ball Technology” (FBT). The theory behind the FBT is a water measuring device that is virtually weightless in water and has no friction while it operates as the ball impeller floats. Because of this, the FBT is able to operate and measure at both very low and extremely high flow rates.
