NEW STAINLESS STEEL FLOW METERS ABS CERTIFIED
FloScan Instrument Company, Inc is pleased to announce that their new Series K Stainless Steel Flowmeters have obtained ABS Product Design Certification. This certification permits the installation of FloScan Fuel Monitoring Systems on ABS-classed vesels which require steel piping components.PDA Certificate Number 13-HS1050296-PDA
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 aircraft 40 years ago, more than 750,000 FloScan
sensors and systems have found their way onto almost every make of
gasoline and diesel engine in the world rated from 25hp to 6000hp.
makes our turbine flowmeter design superior to others is the internal
fuel bypass feature which makes it immune to fuel blockage. This
"Fail-Open" design eliminates the costly addition of a fuel bypass line
required by oval gear positive displacement flowmeter manufacturers to
address this issue. On critical engine applications such as a marine
propulsion engine, industrial power generator or aircraft application,
fuel blockage can have disastrous consequences. Whatever your fuel
measurement needs, FloScan provides the most economical and safest
solution on the market.

Repeatability guaranteed to (+/-) 0.5% for lifetime of flow sensor
DATALOG FUEL MONITORING SOFTWARE
DataLog was designed to satisfy customer requests to record fuel usage data for NOx emissions reporting and to simplify fuel inventory control. It also provides the captain with valuable real-time fuel flow data to pinpoint the engine speed to improve fuel economy up to 20% or more. And the individual fuel flow rates and temperatures keep track of the engine’s health and performance. Changes in these parameters under normal operating conditions, such as a reduction in the supply flow rate or a marked increase in the return flow temperature, are a clear indication that something's amiss and should be investigated. This feature alone could save thousands of dollars in downtime and repair costs. The data recorded on the PC is automatically transferred to a custom-programmed FloScan flash drive as a CSV spreadsheet file. The USB flash drive is automatically synched with the latest "unrecorded" data each time the flash drive is inserted. This can be done daily, weekly, monthly, etc..., to retrieve the data or the file can be manually e-mailed as an attachment directly from the vessel's PC. Each commercial copy can monitor and record up to 16 engines simultaneously on a NMEA 2000 or CANbus (network) backbone. Software also includes custom CSV spreadsheet report generation.

FLOSCAN FUEL COMPUTERS SHOW EXACT FUEL USE
FloScan Fuel Computers show exactly how much fuel you've used, and how fast you're using it. Rather than trying to measure what's splashing around in your tanks, FloScan's electronic sensors determine fuel flow right at your engine. And the computerised display indicates precise consumption totals. There's no guesswork. Unlike fluctuating fuel tank float gauges, you receive immediate, accurate data. No matter how rough the seas no matter how many tanks or engines in your boat.
A FloScan Fuel Computer pays for itself in fuel savings alone. You can easily set your boat's most efficient speed by watching your FloScan to see how fuel usage varies at different speeds and running conditions. Most skippers can save 10%-20% on their fuel bill, so the serious fisherman/cruise can pay for his FloScan in less than a season. Something else to consider: a FloScan Fuel Computer will eliminate the need for a tow if you run out of fuel. (Think of it as an insurance policy with an automatic dividend of more fishing and real dollar savings).
Adventure without misadventure.
How many times have you hesitated to try new grounds or stay out longer because you couldn't trust your fuel tank gauges? FloScan Fuel Computers are a remarkable tool that'll give you more fishing and greater range with no fuel worries, plus, it pays for itself.
MONITORS YOUR BOAT'S HEARTBEAT
A FloScan Fuel Computer serves as a watchdog on engine performance. For example, if your LPH or LPNM increases from what you've already determined to be a efficient operating level, you'll know something's amiss - nicked prop, fouled hull, engine problem, etc. Even something as simple as a defective spark plug can up your fuel consumption by 20-40%, without any other noticeable change in engine operation.
FloScan Flow Sensors are fail-safe. With the same opto-electronic technology used by the safety-driven aviation industry (FloScan's are virtually the only fuel flow sensors given FAA approval for use in general aviation aircraft), our fuel computers have a scant margin of error of less than 2% with on-board calibration. Tough, durable components like sapphire rotor bearings, precision aluminium die-castings, and gold-plated detectors perform in seas nasty enough to drive barracudas below decks.
OUTBOARDS TO DIESEL CRUISERS
FloScan has a model for just about every petrol engine built, from single outboards to high-performance inboards. And our diesel models are the first affordable diesel fuel monitoring systems in the marine world, priced about 75% less than any comparable competitive product. We'll match the system to your engine. All we need is your engine make, model number, and hp rating.
INTERNATIONAL LEADERS IN FUEL FLOW TECHNOLOGY
We've been connected to some well-known engines. FloScan is the world's #1 producer of fuel flow sensor systems - over 500,000 used on cars, trucks, boats, and airplanes. (As a matter of fact, we invented them for each of these industries).
OVER THE ROAD, IN THE AIR
There are more than 100,000 FloScan sensors aboard such aircraft as Cessna, Piper, and Beechcraft, and such trucks as Kenworth, Peterbilt, Freightliner, and International. Remember in 1986, the record-breaking, non-stop, around-the-world flight of the "Voyager'" in which error-free fuel monitoring was absolutely paramount to the mission? Pilots Yeager and Rutan were guided by FloScan fuel flow meters. We'll give you the same security at sea. No matter where you’re fishing or cruising, FloScan can extend your range and give you peace of mind - with an instrument that pays for itself.
