Ultra-high resolution, odorant meter

The number of odorization sites has increased dramatically with the addition of remote site injection systems. Max has long been the industry leader in mercaptan measurement and verification at large city gate and propane loading facilities. Recently, we have seen a growing interest in smaller meters like our Model P001 to measure sub 1 cc doses of mercaptan at small scale distribution points.

Recirculation tanks and vapor eliminators for fuel measurment

Recirculating Fuel and Efficient Bubble Elimination Increases Fuel Measurement Accuracy

In an attempt to measure actual fuel consumption, early designs of fuel measurement systems employed two flow meters; one would measure supply fuel and the other, return fuel. 

Max Machinery, Inc. has expanded its sales network to better serve its growing customer base.  As of April 1st, 2017, Northeast Engineering Inc. will be the exclusive agent representing Max Machinery, Inc. in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont.

The conversion to a single-line part number gave us the opportunity to review and consolidate some of our product variants.

Max Model P001 meters

The red tote makes these meters look like jewels in a gift box.

Just in time for the Holidays, a set of the Model P001 meters has been wrapped and shipped to our friends at the Shell Eco-Marathon.
These meters will soon find their way to students competing in the Urban Concept vehicle category of the 2017 Event. Check it out at #shellecomarathon

Part Number Matrix

On January 1, 2017 we will update our part numbering system to bring all of our Piston and Helical meters in line with the G-Series, Gear meters. The new, single-line, part numbering system will allow you to confidently specify your choice of features as you select from the matrices for the P-Series, Piston Meters and H-Series, Helical Meters.

We are often asked to provide an analog output signal for a wide operating range project. While we are happy to accommodate this request, there are certain realities that must be considered. When you select an analog signal, you are setting the span to the project’s full scale value and the voltage or current level produced at each flow rate will then have a fixed magnitude of resolution.


On August 31, the Max crew and their families were treated to a mid-summer outing to a San Francisco Giant's game. We were doubly blessed with fantastic weather and a Giant's win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Giants won the World Series in 2010, 2012 and we figured that this was a chance to see a Giant's game in advance of their inevitable 2016 victory.
