Description
This turbine water meter was made by the Badger Meter Manufacturing Company in Milwaukee, Wisc. The serial number (1,889,599 ) dates from 1940. According to the donor, the first Badger magnetic-drive meters built on a production line basis were not introduced until the late 1950s. This example was probably specially built for an individual customer. Research on magnetic-drive motors began in the 1930s.
