New replaceable battery for water meters


Severn Trent Services has developed a new replaceable battery for its SmartMeter SM700 20- and 30-gallon-perminute water meters. The new battery has a life beyond 15 years and can be exchanged with a meter’s existing battery to extend the meter life to more than 30 years.

Employing fluidic oscillation technology, SmartMeter water meters have no moving parts and are unaffected by grit and particulates, providing for lifelong accuracy, dependability and cost efficiency. The water meters provide a range of functions to monitor leakage, supply data and prevent meter tampering, helping water companies optimise their networks.
