FloScan Earns ABS Certification for New Series K Stainless Steel Flowmeters

By MarEx 2013-09-23 11:57:00

FloScan Instrument Company, Inc. announced another milestone in product development with the introduction of the new Series K Stainless Steel Diesel Flow Sensor that has earned ABS Product Design Assessment Certification. This is great news for companies operating ABS-Classed vessels that will now be able to profit from using FloScan fuel computers, networking components and software applications to reduce operating costs and improve fuel accountability.

FloScan is the world’s leading manufacturer of fuel monitoring systems for permanent installation on diesel and gasoline engines. FloScan Systems are installed worldwide on commercial and recreational vessels, stationary industrial generators and general aviation aircraft—everywhere internal combustion engines are used.

Since FloScan flowmeters were first introduced in commercial aircraft 40 years ago, more than 750,000 FloScan sensors and systems have been installed. Their applications encompass almost every make of gasoline and diesel engine in the world with power ratings from as small as 25 to as large as 6,000 horsepower. The unique design of FloScan’s turbine flow sensor resists clogging that can cause an engine shutdown and therefore does not require a costly bypass circuit for diesel installations. FloScan flow sensors are repeatable to 1/2% and are calibrated at 6 flow points for superior accuracy.

With the introduction of the new Stainless Steel Series K Flow Sensor, FloScan can now offer fuel computers to meet the standards required for ABS-classed vessels using all steel piping components for fuel delivery systems.
