Abstract: Rockwell Internationals technological contributions to gas meter advancement trace back 100 years. During that period of many and rapid changes, the company engineered, manufactured, and marketed diaphragm, rotary, orifice and, more recently, turbine meters, along with accessory instrumentation. Today, an estimated 20 million Rockwell gas meters are in service on all types of gas measurement applications, ranging from high pressure offshore producing platforms to individual homes. Each development, each improvement, each introduction of metering devices has paralleled the growth and needs of the gas industry. Following World War II, for example, Rockwell recognized the industrys changing needs stemming from high pressure, interstate natural gas pipelines and the dramatic increase in large volume measurement applications. Those needs were answered in 1963 with the introduction of Rockwells Gas Turbo- Meter.
