  • The Akron test bench is designed to test large meters and is available in one through four unit models. By using the optional tester clamp, the Akron test bench can test up to a 6" meter.

Yokes and Yoke Parts

Yokes and Yoke Parts
Our yokes provide stability with proper spacing and alignment to support the water meter and the water lines. Meter changes with Ford yokes are quick and trouble-free. These yokes provide versatility with a wide variety of valve styles at either the inlet or outlet. Yokes offer security, because, when a meter is removed from a yoke, the expansion connection is removed also. The expansion connection's absence helps prevent unauthorized water use.
