FloScan Instrument Company, Inc. announced that its new Series K Stainless Steel Diesel Flow Sensor has earned ABS Product Design Assessment Certification. Companies operating ABS-Classed vessels will now be able to use FloScan fuel computers, networking components and software applications to reduce operating costs and improve fuel accountability.

FloScan is a 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 .5% and are calibrated at six flow points for superior accuracy.

With the introduction of the new Stainless Steel Series K Flow Sensor, FloScan said it can now offer fuel computers to meet the standards required for ABS-classed vessels using all steel piping components for fuel delivery systems. (PDA Certificate Number 13-HS1050296-PDA)
