The Company:
FloScan is a 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. Since FloScan flowmeters were first introduced in aircraft over 40 years ago, more than 750,000 FloScan flowmeters have found their way onto almost every make of gasoline and diesel engine rated from 25hp to 6000hp.
The Case:
Commercial fleets worldwide are installing FloScan to obtain a complete record of diesel fuel consumption and vessel efficiency. Their latest software development, DataLog, combined with the FloNET (NMEA 2000) Fuel Monitoring System, is being used to improve vessel fuel economy, better manage fuel inventories and monitor vessel location and movement. The Floscan turbine flowmeter design employs an internal fuel bypass feature which makes it immune to fuel blockage.
