Kerosene Gasoline/ Kerosene Flow Meter

A kerosene flow meter is a flow meter that can be used to measure the flow of kerosene. Kerosene is a common oil in industrial production. It is an organic solvent and has no electrical conductivity. Similar to diesel gasoline.

If it is not conductive, it cannot be measured with an electromagnetic flowmeter. Select the appropriate flowmeter according to the size of the flow and the size of the pipeline. From the perspective of medium, it can be measured by liquid turbine flowmeter, vortex flowmeter, oval gear flowmeter, mass flowmeter, orifice flowmeter, and rotameter. Which one is better in practice needs to be selected according to the actual parameters of the site.

Kerosene Gasoline

Pure kerosene is colorless and transparent liquid, pale yellow when it contains impurities. Slightly smelly. The boiling range is 180-310°C (not absolute, it needs to be changed according to the specific situation during production). The average molecular weight is between 200-250.

The melting point is above -40℃. The kinematic viscosity at 40℃ is 1.0~2.0mm2/s. Insoluble in water, soluble in alcohol and other organic solvents. volatile. Flammable. After volatilization, it mixes with air to form an explosive gas mixture. Complete combustion, sufficient brightness, stable flame, no black smoke, no lights, no obvious odor, and little environmental pollution.

Kerosene is miscible with petroleum-based solvents. The solubility of water is very small, and the solubility of kerosene containing aromatic hydrocarbons in water is greater than that of aliphatic hydrocarbon kerosene. Kerosene can dissolve anhydrous ethanol. Mixtures with alcohols separate at low temperatures in the presence of water.

Different uses of kerosene have different chemical compositions. The same kerosene has different physical and chemical properties due to different preparation methods and origins.

The quality of various kinds of kerosene decreases in turn: power kerosene, solvent kerosene, lamp kerosene, fuel kerosene, and washing kerosene.

Kerosene is a high-boiling hydrocarbon mixture with C11-C17 carbon atoms. The main components are saturated hydrocarbons, and also contain unsaturated hydrocarbons and aromatic hydrocarbons. Due to different varieties, it contains 28-48% alkanes, 20-50% or 8%-15% aromatic hydrocarbons, 1-6% unsaturated hydrocarbons, and 17-44% cyclic hydrocarbons. The number of carbon atoms is 11-16. In addition, there are a small amount of impurities, such as sulfides (thiols), colloids, etc. The sulfur content is 0.04% to 0.10%. Free of benzene, diolefins and cracked fractions.

Mainly used for lighting and fuel for various blowtorches, gas lamps, vaporization furnaces and kerosene furnaces; it can also be used as detergent for mechanical parts, solvent for rubber and pharmaceutical industries, ink thinner, cracking raw material for organic chemicals; glass ceramics Industrial, aluminum plate rolling, chemical heat treatment of metal workpiece surfaces and other process oils; some kerosene is also used to make thermometers. According to the use, it can be divided into power kerosene, lighting kerosene, etc.

Types of Kerosene Flow Meters

Which flowmeter should I choose to measure kerosene flow? We need to understand the corresponding situation of the measurement conditions first. The type of flowmeter that can be selected for different flow ranges can also be different.

For common measurement sites, trade measurement is generally involved. Our recommendation is to use a liquid waist wheel flowmeter or an oval gear flowmeter. Because volumetric measurement is used, this method measures accuracy. Especially suitable for trade settlement scenarios.

The second is the choice of liquid turbine flowmeter. Turbine flow meters are measured by the rotation of vanes inside the flow. Compared with the volumetric measurement method, the accuracy will be slightly less. But still maintain a stable 0.5 level of accuracy.

The measurement accuracy of other types of flowmeters, such as metal tube rotameter, orifice flowmeter, and vortex flowmeter, is significantly lower than that of the above two types of flowmeters. It is also optional if it is used for process control or internal monitoring.
