FloScan’s new ABS-certified stainless steel flowmeters were tested on the F/V North American powered by a CAT 399 1125hp main engine. The North American is 110’ Marco-built crab boat once featured in the popular Deadliest Catch TV Series.

Erling Skaar, owner of the North American, was onboard and had this to say about the new stainless steel flowmeters, “We ran tests at various RPM rates and vessel speeds on Puget Sound and our FloScan meters registered 118.0 gallons consumed. We compared it with our sight level gauge which measured in at 117.5 gallons consumed. The accuracy was phenomenal but we weren’t surprised since they were just as accurate as the aluminum FloScan flowmeters we had been using for the past 10 years. FloScan is our only choice for accurate fuel flow data.”

FloScan is currently looking for qualified workboat fleets to test their ABS-certified stainless steel flowmeters. Those interested in testing a set at no additional charge should contact Joe Dydasco at or call 206-524-6625 Ext. 316 for more information.
