Engine Efficiency Management

KRAL Fuel Consumption Measurement Systems (FCM) are ideally suited for marine and power generation fuel measurement. Fuel consumption value is an indicator of optimum engine tuning. Reducing speeds of ocean-going vessels and improved engine tuning can save as much as 10% on fuel. KRAL FCM Systems are reliable regulatory monitoring devices to document fuel usage for emissions control air permit reports.

KRAL FCM verify the effectiveness of fuel-saving solutions:

(FCM) Fuel Consumption Measurement Systems


Fuel Consumption Measurement Systems

The standard KRAL FCM system is comprised of 2 KRAL positive displacement flow meters (Volumeters) and a BEM 500 electronic unit. Temperature differences between the forward and return fuel flows are taken into account to provide a more accurate reading.

Fuel Consumption Measurement (FCM) Components

  • Kral Volumeter
  • Temperature Sensor Probe
  • Speed Sensor Probes
  • Junction Box
  • Connection Flanges
  • BEM 500 Electronic Unit

The Single Line System is installed before the mixing tank and consists of one volumeter to measure liquid volume. Using the temperature sensor and density table, the measured values of the KRAL Volumeter can be converted in mass units. The Single Line System yields very accurate flow measurement over a longer measurement period, but NOT real time consumption.

KRAL Volumeters

KRAL Flowmeters (Volumeters) measure the flow of liquids. They are accurate to +/- 0.1% of rate over a wide flow and viscosity range. The KRAL Volumeter (fuel meter) is a very compact positive displacement meter that measures the flow of liquids. The measurement chamber consists of the casing and two screw spindles. The spindles continuously divide the liquid in a precision made closed measuring chamber - nothing escapes. The precisely measured value is calculated from the known measuring chamber volume and the spindle rotation speed. Their robust construction maintains precise and reliable measurements over years of operation.

KRAL flowmeters

KRAL BEM electronic units are matched to KRAL flowmeters and their applications and can be installed in the engine room or in remote locations. They display the measured fuel consumption in addition to the values recorded at each meter.

The high quality KRAL electronic components and evaluation algorithms used, maintain precisely measured flow values to be shown on the display as well as the signal outputs. The flow and temperature ranges of the flowmeters are stored in the electronics and if values are exceeded then the alarms are displayed.
