Turbine Flowmeter Solution Measures Diesel Fuel Consumption
FT/DF system withstands extreme temperature environments
TEMPE, Ariz. – Flow Technology, Inc. (FTI), a leading manufacturer of precision flow measurement instruments, systems and calibrators, today announced the FT/DF (Diesel Fuel) turbine flowmeter system, which provides accurate measurements of diesel fuel consumption in a wide range of industrial applications.
End users employ fuel flowmeters to monitor diesel fuel consumption in the automotive, marine, aerospace and power generation industries, among others. For example, mining companies utilizing diesel generators to power their operations require accurate monitoring of diesel fuel usage to ensure the efficiency and reliability of the generators. Flow meters used in this application must be able to withstand extreme temperature swings in the installation environment.
Pairing Flow Technology’s FT Series turbine meter with the LinearLink Temperature Compensated Interface (TCI), the FT/DF system can accurate measure diesel fuel at temperatures as low as -50 degrees F. The turbine flowmeter incorporates a “fail open” technology, meaning that in the event of a malfunction, fuel continues to be fed to the generator—ensuring there is no interruption of power to the industrial operation.
