Exhibit description

Although all gas meters serve the same purpose – to measure the volume of the flowing gas – they use various technological solutions to achieve it. Inside this gas meter rotates a drum filled with water. Its movement is caused by the flowing gas, and this enables the volume of the gas to be measured.
