This standard describes the various classes of cold-water turbine meters in sizes ¾ in. (20 mm) through 20 in. (500 mm) for water supply customer service, mainline metering, and custody transfer of water among purveyors, and the materials and workmanship employed in their fabrication. The turbine meters described in this standard are divided into class I and class II meters.
