FCS Consumption Kit for Marine Use
FLOMEC® Fuel Consumption System (FCS) is a complete fuel monitoring system that comprises 2x EGM positive displacement meters coupled with an F127 flow instrument for accurate measurement of fuel consumption rates and total fuel consumption. The FCS can accurately measure fuel consumption of combustion engines by correcting for temperature differences from the inlet to the outlet of the engine. Pulsating flow electronics, eliminating error due to fuel injection pulsation, coupled with integral PT100 resistance thermometers in FLOMEC’s renowned positive displacement meters gives an accurate and economic fuel consumption measurement solution for all engine sizes.
Although each Fuel Consumption Kit consists of the same items, the size of the meter and the process connections change depending on the rate of flow, which is a direct correlation to the size of the engine.
A typical diesel fuel loop system would on average have 3.5 times more fuel in its line than what the engine consumes at full load. With this in mind, selecting the right kit based on the engine’s power output is important to ensure accuracy and the positive displacement meters’ longevity.
The graphs depicted here should be used as a guide when determining the size of kit is required.
