Badger SC-SOT Water Meter

Description
This disc water meter was made by the Badger Meter Manufacturing Company in Milwaukee, Wisc. It has a split case and so could be used in warmer climates where there was no danger of freezing. It fits a ⅝” pipe, has a capacity of 26 gallons per minute, and was designed for use with corrosive waters. Due to wartime materials restrictions, the case is made of cast iron. The serial number (2,358,003) dates from 1943. SC-SOT stands for split case, sealed oil gear train.
