An instrument called a fuel gauge is used to show how much fuel is in a fuel tank in the fields of automotive and aerospace engineering. On some aircraft, one fuel gauge, known as a totalizer, indicates the total quantity of fuel left in all the fuel tanks.
The word is used for ICs that determine the current State of Charge of accumulators. The most basic fuel quantity gauge is the sight glass. A glass or plastic tube that is positioned at the same level as the tank serves as the indicator.
The global aircraft fuel gauging system market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
In order to assist in the transition of aviation to hydrogen flight, end-to-end hydrogen fuel gauging system technology has been combined with GKN Aerospace by Fabrum, a pioneer in the zero-emissions transition, and British engineering firm Filton Systems Engineering (FSE).
This partnership makes use of Fabrum’s expertise in hydrogen fuel gauging systems and cryogenic technology as well as FSE’s aerospace capability in fuel systems and designing fuel, air, hydraulic, inerting, and engine systems.
The announcement is timed to coincide with FSE’s upgrade to its current hot and cold fuel test facility, which will now provide both gaseous and liquid hydrogen in a world-first commercial test environment in Bristol, which has become a focal point for hydrogen technology globally.
With the help of these testing facilities and further assistance from FSE in the form of certification for flight status, aerospace businesses may now generate and test liquid hydrogen as a fuel for hydrogen test flights.
For the test facility, Fabrum created an earth-based end-to-end solution for producing liquid hydrogen that included hydrogen conditioning, liquefaction, and liquid hydrogen storage.
Additional improvements are anticipated, such as removing reliance on gaseous hydrogen supply by merging Fabrum’s cryogenic technology with a membrane-free electrolyser.
