Selecting Metering system for your Mobile Fuel Dispensing Unit

Accurate flow metering system is the heart of fuel trucks used in doorstep diesel delivery and is the most important differentiator for building a successful business model. The importance of above statement is in the fact that for a typical diesel browser dispensing on an average 10 KL per day, a basic flow measurement system with under-reading error of 0.5% can amount to huge losses which can be to the tune of approx 3KL liter of diesel in a single month which essentially means a lot of money, and you can run the numbers on yearly basis based on fuel cost in your area. So, choosing an accurate diesel flow meter system for your Browser must be done with careful assessment and basic understanding of important elements involved to back the data for ROI calculations. For sustenance of any business model, superiority of product and services is bare minimum for building trust with end customers and thus, it is imperative that while delivering fuel repeated accurate deliveries are ensured to have a win-win with your end customers and also remaining safe by being on the right side of regulations. Best metering systems should minimum consist of robust and really accurate custody transfer flow meter, dual channel pulses meeting Security Level A of the API standards, Strainer and Air Eliminator at the upstream of flow meter, Rugged & highly accurate electronic register, Preset valve & Ticket Printer.

Selecting Metering system for your Mobile Fuel Dispensing Unit

1. Ask for best performance, as every drop count’s:
  • Sustained +/- 0.1% accuracy of diesel flow meter which ensures sustained business model for building trust with your clients.
  • Repeatability better than 0.02 over entire range of flow rates.
  • Use Strainer and Air Eliminator before PD meter to guarantee sustained accuracy over many years of operation.
2. Be Sure & Relaxed, with enhanced Safety & Security of the system:
  • Electronics to comply ISO 7637-2 to protect from Shock, Vibration and Electrical Interference
  • Electronics to comply E3M3 compliance to protect from Mechanical and Electrical Vibration
  • Electronics to comply EMI/EMC compliance to protected against Electromechanical/ Radio Frequency interference as per IEC 60068
  • Pulser should be tamper proof & generate Dual Quadrature pulses (90-degree phase shift) with Level A Security as per API 5.5 MPMS to prevent Fraudulent.
  • Non-Exposed Pulsar Card to Ensure no chance of introducing foreign parts.
  • Ensure PD meter & pulser to be of same make to enhance tamper proof solution.
  • Easy to configure with other automation system
