The Elehant gas meter
What kind (type) of counter is the Elehant brand gas meter?

Why is the gas meter «Elehant» better than the other gas meters?
Power batteries serve complete life time period of calibration interval-12 years (the meter’s screen is lighted, only when the button is pressed) unlike the other counting devices, where power batteries are out of service after the first year of exploitation, according to gas-service workers. The maximum life time period of the power battery is 6-7 years (replacement of the power batteries cause many complicated actions to be done by a consumer and for his/her expense, including secondary verification).
Modern stylish appearance-decorative overlays of different colors suitable for any kitchen interior.
Small size and weight, unlike the other meters.
The ability of installation both in vertical and horizontal position: the meter’s screen adjusts browsing the information, depending on the device’s position-just the same way that modern smartphones rotate the picture, when the phone is held horizontally, and flips back to vertical image when the phone is held normally.
The ability to view the history of gas consumption per each month during the last year (instead of constantly active line showing the current indicators of consumption like it is done at similar devices).
Very easy and convenient way of installation by a bayonet nut (affordable for consumer).
The most favorable terms for warranty service (the repeated visit of the installer to replace the counter under warranty is carried out at the manufacturer’s expense by mutual settlements with the company that sold the meter) instead of directing that expense of the consumer or the store that sold the defective product.
How to rotate the screen on a meter’s display?
To do this, you have to press the counter’s button 6 times within 2 seconds, this will cause the rotation of the picture on the screen per 90° adjusting the image clockwise. The sequence of these actions can be repeated, until the browsing orientation is set desirably.
Does it take welding for mounting?
The meter is installed without welding. The standard mounting of the meter is carried out by means of threaded connection without the use of welding. However, this does not exclude the possibility of using welding for installation of gas pipes from outside and inside the structure, but the use of welding for direct mounting of the counter is contraindicated-plastic parts will be melted.

If there is only a gas water boiler (a geyser) — meter is SGB — 3,2 or SGB — 4,0.
Gas stove + gas water boiler — set of meters has to be installed. SGB — 1,8 for the stove, and SGB — 3,2 or SGB — 4,0 for the water boiler.
If there is only a gas boiler — SGB — 4,0.
