70 Series Coppersetters
Ford 70 series Coppersetters are designed to be a complete, ready-made meter setting. They require only two pipe joints to install and will connect to horizontal service lines. 70 Series Coppersetters are made in various heights to place the meter at the proper elevation for convenient reading and servicing. Correct hydraulic design assures minimum pressure loss; copper and brass construction provides a lifetime of satisfactory service.
270 Series Coppersetters
The 270 Series Coppersetters, with removable Pack Joint Assemblies, save time and expense when water meters are set outside in existing service lines. Threading of old iron pipe or flaring of brittle copper tubing is not required. Pack Joint Assemblies are interchangeable and available for all types of service pipe, a great help in metering programs where conditions are unknown until the pits are dug.
80 Series Coppersetters
The Ford 80 Series Coppersetter offers economy and flexibility by allowing the utility to construct meter pit risers from various service line materials, cut to any height. The 80 Series setters connect directly to these risers, without elbows or pressure reducing bends, by means of a wide variety of service line connections. All standard Coppersetter valve options, including Dual or Single Check Valves, are available on the 80 Series.
70-80 Series Coppersetters
Standard service installation in some water utilities calls for tubing from the main to the curb meter setting to be relatively deep, and the pipe from the meter box to the house to be shallower. The Angle Coppersetter has a vertical inlet and horizontal outlet. It can be furnished with a variety of valves as described below.
90 Series Coppersetters
Each conduit of the 90 Series Coppersetter is one piece of copper tubing and the two conduits are connected by a clamp. This flexible design provides adjustability to the space between service pipe ends during installation. The clamp is normally soldered permanently to the tubes but can be furnished with a bolted clamp so that the two conduits can be taken apart, if desired. An optional extended outlet leg provides customer side hook-up without disturbing the pit.
40 Series Resetters
Correcting low settings with the Ford Resetter is quick and easy. The meter is removed, the Resetter bar connected in the position formerly occupied by the meter, and the meter reset in the raised position. No new pipe joints are necessary. The reset meter is cleaner, easier to read, and much simpler to change.
30 Series Resetters
Under some conditions the resetting and raising of a too-low meter can be accomplished most easily if the Resetter provides for flexibility in the spacing of the threaded ends which connect to the existing meter couplings. The Flexible Resetter is designed for easy installation in such settings and still maintains proper spacing and alignment for the meter in the raised position. Flexible Resetters are available with a variety of valve options.
Coppersetters for 1-1/2" & 2" Flanged Meters
For larger meter settings, Ford Meter Box offers 1-1/2" and 2" meters for 70, 70-80, and 80 Series Coppersetters. This large meter setting will provide the same advantages as smaller Ford Coppersetters and is manufactured of the same high quality materials. A wide variety of inlet and outlet connections and valves are available for Ford Coppersetters for 1-1/2" and 2" meters.
