Caterpillar Relies on KRAL Flowmeters
Caterpillar now offers a retrofit kit for Fuel Consumption Monitoring for all diesel engines that include KRAL flowmeters.
KRAL flowmeters allow for accurate tracking of fuel consumption in real time and managing asset utilization. The data can be displayed remotely.
Two flowmeters are necessary, one in the supply line of the engine and the other in the return line. The difference between supply and return flow represents the actual fuel consumption. To calculate a net fuel burn with better than 2% system accuracy each single flowmeter must be of high measurement precision due to error propagation.
KRAL Volumeter® can measure with a high accuracy of +/- 0.1% regardless of fuel quality and temperature.
Other key benefits for this application are that the KRAL Volumeter® is compact, easy to retrofit and suitable for a harsh engine and equipment environment.
