FloScan Instrument Co.
’s new Series K Stainless Steel Diesel Flow Sensor has earned ABS Product Design
Companies operating ABS-classed vessels will now be able to profit
from using FloScan fuel computers, networking components and software
applications to reduce operating costs and improve fuel accountability,
Seattle-based FloScan says.
FloScan fuel monitoring systems for permanent installation on
diesel and gasoline engines are installed worldwide on commercial and
recreational vessels, stationary industrial generators and general aviation
Since FloScan flowmeters were first introduced in commercial
aircraft 40 years ago, more than 750,000 FloScan sensors and systems have been
installed, the company says. Their applications encompass almost every make of
gasoline and diesel engine, FloScan says, with power ratings from as small as 25
to as large as 6,000 horsepower.
FloScan says its unique turbine flow sensor design resists clogging
that can cause an engine shutdown and therefore does not require a costly
bypass circuit for diesel installations. The company says its flow sensors are
repeatable to ½ percent and are calibrated at 6 flow points for superior
With the introduction of the new Stainless Steel Series K
Flow Sensor, FloScan says it can now offer fuel computers to meet the standards
required for ABS-classed vessels using all steel piping components for fuel delivery
systems (PDA Certificate Number 13-HS1050296-PDA).
