  • Going the Distance

    Gasoline prices are outrageous. I remember when I first received my license gas was $1.49 a gallon. As a result, I did not pay much attention to how much I drove or what kind of car I was driving. In the first few years I had several different cars and a truck. Once gas prices started to rise, I did start to notice how much my current truck was sucking up gas. Working two jobs and going to school I could almost watch my hard earned money being burned away...

  • Fuel Flow Meter: How to Sustain a Vehicle

    How is it that my car is able to let me know when it is almost out of gas? How is it that the gasoline is able to flow into the engine at the right level to power the whole vehicle without overwhelming it? These are not questions I have asked myself before, because I am ok with not understanding the mechanics of my trusty car, even though my life depends on it working correctly. I must admit though, learning how important a fuel flow meter is for the health...

  • Sierra Instruments Introduces New Gas Mixing Feature

    Sierra Instruments has released a new gas mixing software package that allows users to create custom gases or gas mixtures to compensate for gas compositional changes in the field. When the gas composition changes in the pipe or when moving the meter to another location with a different gas composition, qMix lets users retain accuracy without returning the thermal mass flow meter to the factory for gas recalibration each time, the company says. The qMix software package is now included with every QuadraTherm 640i/780i thermal mass flow meter...

    HOFFER FLOW CONTROLS, INC. Elizabeth City, NC is known worldwide, as a major supplier of truck mounted cryogenic delivery systems for CRYOGENIC FLUIDS including LIQUIFIED NATURAL GAS. The MODEL "ICE" INTEGRATED LNG CRYOGENIC MEASURING SYSTEM was developed by Hoffer Flow Controls based on the outlook for continued demand worldwide for LNG that offers an alternative to pipeline gas supply. The latest statistics for the World LNG Markets report by Douglas-Westwood shows expenditures for product structures of 30 billion plus by the end of this year. This "ICE" unit meets or...

  • Hoffer Flow Controls Flow Measurement Systems Gain Approval from the U.S. Navy Sea Systems Command

    Hoffer Flow Controls, Inc. recently received a new contract from the U. S. Navy Sea Systems Command to supply fuel flow measurement systems as a part of the U.S. Navy’s Energy Dashboard Program. Hoffer fuel measurement systems are currently incorporated into the “Energy Dashboard Proof-of-Concept System” aboard several of the US Navy DDG51 class ships.  The new contract will expand significantly the number of ships equipped with these systems.  The “Energy Dashboard” uses an integrated condition assessment system, which ties into other shipboard computer software systems making sailors aware of...

Industry Information

Highly Accurate Fuel Flow Meters

There have been some incredible innovations in the fuel flow meter technologies, particularly in the industry that deals with common fuels such as diesel, gasoline and kerosene. Most people have experienced the fluctuation of fuel prices in the past decade. The rise in gas prices has made way for research into alternative fuels, hybrid cars and other innovations. Some companies have upgraded their fuel flow meters with integrated digital displays that accurately provide fuel rates. These devices do not directly relieve the stress of fuel consumption but rather assist with logistical information such as lifetime fuel usage and automatic individual vehicle fuel economy.

Another innovation in fuel flow meter technology is the use of ultrasonic properties. These new ultrasonic fuel flow meters are not only extremely accurate but they also increase application performance. This increase is possible because there is no need for traditional mechanical parts that obscure the flow path to gather readings. By removing those parts from the flow path this allows for a more true flow rating but also lowers the pressure in the line. This type of innovation is great for the racecar industry. This device allows for higher levels of temporal resolution which is a measurement in reference to time. This is related to racecars because proper timing for refueling is essential in this activity. Cars will drive faster when there is less fuel in the tank. Drivers will run the risk of running out of fuel to gain speed and get a few extra laps in before refueling. With more precise fuel flow meters the drivers will know with greater accuracy how many laps they can attempt before refueling. These innovations are great for the racing world but also for various industries that require exact measurements.



Fuel Flow Meters

Fuel flow meters are an essential part of any engine used in transportation, although they are often essential in stationary pumps as well. Capable of metering diesel fuel, gasoline, kerosene, mineral spirits, stoddard solvent and heptane, fuel flow meters measure the rate of fuel flow into an engine, consequently calculating the engine's current rate of fuel consumption and the remaining amount of fuel left in the tank.

Modern fuel flow meters are computerized, sending data on fuel rate, rotations per minute (RPM) and the amount of fuel left in a tank to a display screen. Some more complicated transportation devices, such as cars, airplanes and spaceships, use the information collected by the fuel flow meter to communicate information to other parts of the machine; for example, the RPM is communicated to a car's automatic transmission to trigger shifting into a higher or lower gear. Marine vessels and boats often display fuel flow meter screens on the dashboard so the captain can keep track of how much fuel is being used and is remaining. Fuel flow meters are also used in stationary pumping fuel dispensers, passenger cars, heavy trucks, ship engines and aerospace applications. Up until recently fuel flow meters used mechanical measurement tools such as turbine or positive displacement; today, most fuel flow meters use ultrasonic sensors to communicate flow rate data to computerized receptors.

Like most other flow meters, fuel flow meters are made of three parts: the primary device, transducer and transmitter. These three parts are usually combined so that the flow meter is one complete instrument. Manufacturers offer fuel flow meters that use various techniques to take a reading. Thermal mass flow meters take measurements with two sensors that work together. A temperature sensor reference and an active heated sensor take measurements by calculating how much heat loss occurs in the flowing liquid, and thus these flowmeters can determine the flow rate based on this amount. Another type of flow meter is the Coriolis mass flow meter, which operates on the basis of the Coriolis Effect in which a force is applied to the tube of the fuel flow meter, causing the fluid to rotate because of the direction of the acceleration. Other kinds of fuel flow meters operate using sound. These are called ultrasonic flow meters and include several types, like Doppler Effect flow meters and time-of-flight flow meters. Each type of flow meter has specific guidelines that must be followed for proper use. In order for liquid flow meters uch as water flow meters to work properly, they must remain full of liquid. Gas or contaminants of any kind can affect the accuracy of flow meters' readings.
