Industrial Fuel Flow Meters

What is a fuel flow meter? The fuel flow meter is an instrument that can monitor fuel flow. Industrial Fuel is an important energy source. For example, diesel, marine fuel, gasoline, etc.

Industrial Fuel Flow Meters

Industrail Fuel is an important energy source for production and manufacturing. For example, diesel, marine fuel, gasoline, etc. It is very necessary to accurately measure industrial fuel. Commonly used industrial fuel flow meters, such as turbine flow meters, gear flow meters, mass flow meters, ultrasonic flow meters, etc.

Sino-Inst offers a variety of Fuel Flow Meters for flow measurement. If you have any questions, please contact our sales engineers.

Common Industrial Fuel

Fuel oil refers to light distillate fuel oil and heavy distillate fuel oil obtained after crude oil is distilled and processed in a refinery. The former mainly includes gasoline, diesel and jet fuel used in crawling machinery and aircraft internal combustion engines. The latter is mainly used as boiler fuel for steam furnaces and various heating furnaces.

Fuel oil is a fuel used for engine operation, mainly divided into gasoline and diesel.

There are two main types of fuel for automobiles, gasoline and diesel.

The aircraft uses aviation kerosene.

The classification of gasoline is based on the octane number it contains, such as 90#, 97#, etc. The higher the octane number, the lower the probability of deflagration produced by the car, and the better it is for the engine. Therefore, most high-end cars use higher-grade gasoline.

The classification of diesel is based on its freezing point. 0# means that when the temperature is lower than 0 degrees Celsius, it will condense into a solid. The same reason -10# means that it condenses into a solid at -10 degrees Celsius. This is the reason why the diesel cars in the northern winter have a lower label to prevent the fuel from being frozen.

Marine fuel flow meter-fuel flow meter for boat

Marine Fuel Flow Meter is a positive displacement flow meter specially used for measuring marine fuel oil (MFO). With the highest accuracy.

Large-caliber oval gear flow meters, such as 6 inch, 8 inch (DN150, DN200) etc. It is commonly used to measure the flow of oil such as marine fuel, aviation fuel, and diesel. Oval gear flowmeter is a commonly used positive displacement flowmeter. Can indicate cumulative flow, instantaneous flow, single flow, etc. on site. It can also output pulse signal, 4-20mA or 1-5V analog signal, 4-20mA, MODBUS232, 485 communication.

Fuel flow meter aircraft

Aircraft mainly use aviation kerosene as fuel, which is purified from naphtha and paraffin oil through multiple processes.

Turbine flowmeters are mainly used for aircraft kerosene.

Liquid turbine flow meter is the main type of impeller flow meter. Turbine flow meter sensor uses a multi-blade rotor to sense the average flow rate of the fluid. Belongs to speed flow meter.

Liquid turbine flow meter is the main type of impeller type flow (velocity) meter. It is composed of sensors and conversion display. The sensor uses a multi-blade rotor to sense the average flow rate of the fluid, thereby deriving the flow or total amount. Liquid turbine flow meter is suitable for measuring liquids that are not corrosive to stainless steel 1Cr18Ni9Ti, 2Cr13 and corundum Al2O3 in closed pipelines and are free of impurities. For milk, soybean oil, edible oil, diesel, purified water.

Liquid Turbine Flow Meter reference price: DN100. USD 600-700/pc.

Fuel flow meter for diesel

Three kinds of flow meters are commonly used to measure diesel:
The first is an oval gear flow meter, which is also commonly used, with an accuracy of 0.5.
The second type is liquid turbine flowmeter, the accuracy can be 0.5 or 0.2, flange or thread connection
The third type is float type, installed vertically or horizontally, with an accuracy of 1.5.

Although they all measure the flow of diesel oil products, the difference is still very large.

For example, dual-rotor flowmeters and oval gear flowmeters can measure diesel fuel. And various parameters are in line with the measurement range of these two flowmeters.

However, the measurement range of the dual-rotor flowmeter is very large and the noise is very low, and the accuracy is also high. Under the conditions of high precision and low precision, the liquid flow range is very large. However, the minimum pipe diameter is 25mm and the maximum is 300mm;

The oval gear flowmeter is different. The minimum pipe diameter is 6mm and the maximum is 200mm.

And the flow range is very wide. The most important thing is that the price is relatively cheap, which is the best choice for most customers.

Ultrasonic flow meter for fuel

The ultrasonic flow meter measures the liquid flow rate quickly and effectively. There are two types of ultrasonic flowmeter technology: Doppler frequency shift and transit time.

Transit time ultrasonic flow meter is most suitable for measuring the flow of cleaning liquid. Therefore, it is the most popular type of ultrasonic meter.

Doppler ultrasonic flow meter can measure the frequency difference of sound waves reflected from bubbles or particles in the airflow. It is suitable for aerated or dirty liquids.

Mechanical fuel flow meter

Volumetric Flow Meter, as a mechanical flow meter, is also called Positive displacement flowmeter. It can measure the volume flow of high viscosity and corrosive fluids.

Volumetric Flow Meter is a mechanical instrument used to measure the volume flow of fluids. A volumetric flow meter is an instrument which can measure either directly or indirectly the volume of a substance which is passing through a specific location in a set period of time. The main advantage of these types of flow meters is that they can handle high viscosity and corrosiveness fluid.
