Fuel Flowmeters

If you require flowmeters for fuel measurement Flowquip has the perfect solution.

Truck Delivery Systems

For many years Positive Displacement flowmeters have been extensively employed in truck delivery of fuel products.  A comprehensive array of mechanical accessories can be fitted to the fuel flowmeter to provide the user with a highly accurate measuring system.  Such accessories include liquid strainer, air eliminator, batch preset register, large numeral reset totaliser, zero-start or accumulative ticket printer, flow non-return valve and mechanical batching valve.  Where an electronic output is required the flow meter can be fitted with a suitable pulse transmitter which can be used to input to remote instrumentation.  Pulse Transmitters are available with ATEX Approval where necessary.  Exd Pump Switches can be fitted inside the LNC or a Pneumatic Switch Box can be fitted to switch the air supply for pneumatic batch systems.

Additive Injection Systems – Main Flow

The main, or master, flow tends to be fairly high at around 1000 to 3000 l/min and usually requires the use of a 3” or 4” flowmeter.  The VAF MidFlow Series offers a ductile iron positive displacement flowmeter with a nominal accuracy of better than 0.1% of reading.  The fuel flow meter is usually fitted with an Exd Shaft Encoder which provides a quadrature square wave pulse output.  The flowmeter is both ATEX and MID Approved.

Additive Injection – Additive Flow

For fuel additives Flowquip can offer flowmeters from the VAF range of Positive Displacement flowmeters.  For Marker Dyes and other additives the standard flowmeter is the B5023.  This ductile iron flowmeter covers a flow range from 1 to 50 l/min and is fitted with a six digit non-reset mechanical totaliser.  If signal retransmission  is required there is the option of single or dual (quadrature) NAMUR pulse output(s).  This fuel flowmeter is also ATEX and MID Approved.

Additive Injection – Low Additive Flows

For fuel installations involving very low level additive injection the VAF Milliflow M31 piston flowmeter can provide the perfect solution.  It is manufactured in stainless steel and is offered with the standard VAF options of non-reset mechanical totaliser and singe/dual NAMUR ATEX Pulse Transmitter(s).  The standard flow range is 1 to 20 l/hr but for installations involving higher viscosity products the minimum flow can be greatly reduced  

Safe Area Fuel Flow Measurement

For Safe Area Installations the VAF ‘E’ Series flowmeters offer a very accurate and economical solution for fuel measurement.  The flowmeter is available in ductile iron and incorporates a battery powered 7 digit LCD which will display instantaneous flow rate and cumulative/resettable total.  Again, if retransmission is required there is the option of a single NPN scaled pulse output.

For low viscosity fuel applications where budgets are tight Flowquip can offer the FT3 range of stainless steel Industrial Turbine flowmeters.  Available in various sizes to handle flows from 1 l/min to over 4000 l/min these fuel flow meters can be fitted with battery or DC powered displays to show instantaneous flow rate and reset/non reset totals.  Pulse and/or 4-20mA optional outputs are also available for remote recording purposes.  (The FT3 system is also available with ATEX Approval)

There are other flow technologies which can be used for fuel measurement such as Coriolis mass flowmeters.  Flowquip will discuss your application and propose the best flowmeter to meet your application requirements.
