Badger Meter earned NSF-61 certification for its line of fire service meters. The certification includes Badger’s three-inch to 10-inch Fire Series Meters (Model FSMA); four-inch to 12-inch Fire Series Assemblies (Model FSAA) with disc series and turbo series bypass meters; and the eight-inch Combo Meter Assembly. NSF International ( is a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization that is recognized for its scientific and technical expertise in health and environmental sciences. It develops product certification, accreditations, education and risk-management standards for numerous industries, including food, water, indoor air and the environment. NSF/ANSI Standard 61: Drinking Water System Components — Health Effects is the nationally recognized health effects standard for all devices, components and materials that contact drinking water. The Badger Meter Fire Series Meters and Assemblies, as well as the eight-inch Combo Meter Assembly, are listed on the NSF International Web site at Badger’s Fire Series Meters and Assemblies are used in either a secondary line dedicated to fire protection alone or as part of a primary, multi-use system providing fire service protection and potable water for domestic and/or industrial process applications. Features and benefits of the Fire Series Meters and Assemblies include:
• UL listed and FM approved for fire service applications
• Mainline turbine meter — exclusive “floating rotor” reduces bearing friction and lifecycle costs
• Low head loss — assures optimum pressure for fire extinguishing
• Tamper-resistant calibration ring — allows in-line accuracy adjustments while under pressure, reducing repair frequency
• Fusion-bonded, epoxy-coated fire service strainer/flow conditioner — corrosion-resistant, protecting the metering element from debris and preventing downstream flow blockage
• Bypass meter on Fire Series Assemblies — optional choice of a positive displacement meter or a turbine meter to fit your application
• Compatible with all Badger meter reading systems offered, as well as other approved technologies
