Due to the increasing awareness of the impact of exhaust emissions on the environment, combined with the continued increases in fuel costs, there is great need for reduction in fuel consumption.
This has led to a high demand for accurate measurement systems to monitor the fuel consumption per engine. For the large variety in fuel systems, VAF Instruments offers a modular fuel consumption measurement system.
Fuel consumption measurement can be performed in engine-driven installations in all kinds of power and propulsion plants. Various types of fuel can be measured, such as heavy fuel oil, marine diesel oil or bio-oils.
Depending on the design of the fuel system and the preferences of the customer one or multiple flowmeters can be used in combination with temperature compensation to obtain the most accurate measurements.
When Viscosense3D® is used in combination with PT2-type flowmeters, with mounted PT100 element, automatic mass flow measurement is also enabled.
