The flow of fuel in automobiles, including cars, lorries, and buses, is measured using an on-vehicle ultrasonic fuel flow meter. It operates by measuring the speed of fuel flow through the engine’s fuel system using ultrasonic waves.
Two transducers that are installed on the gasoline line make up the meter. Ultrasonic waves are transmitted by one transducer while they are received by the other.
The meter can determine the fuel flow rate by timing how long it takes for ultrasonic waves to pass between the two transducers.
Compared to other fuel flow meter types, on-vehicle ultrasonic fuel flow meters have a number of benefits. They don’t require any cutting or other alterations to the gasoline line because they are non-intrusive.
They may be used to measure the flow of both gasoline and diesel fuel and are also incredibly accurate and reliable.
These meters are frequently employed in the automotive sector to track fuel usage and enhance engine performance. They are also employed in industrial settings where it is crucial to assess fuel flow, such as the maritime and aviation sectors.
Global on-vehicle ultrasonic fuel flow meter market accounted for $XX Billion in 2023 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2024 to 2030.
The next-generation Horiba Real Flow ultrasonic fuel flow meter, developed by UK-based Centronics in collaboration with testing system provider Horiba UK For the automobile sector, Centronics is the power source.
According to the manufacturer, the sensor offers real-time fuel consumption monitoring and true under-the-hood installation for vehicle validation and verification test applications.
With a superior flow measurement accuracy of 0.5% and an increased turndown range of 1000:1, it outperforms its predecessor in every way. With the same tiny package, the Real Flow is equipped to measure extremely low fuel flow rates common in high-efficiency road car engines.
Over the past years, Centronics’ fuel flow measurement technology has been the industry standard in professional motorsport, and it is required for regulation-based fuel flow monitoring in both Formula 1 and the World Endurance Championship.
According to Centronics, their new low-flow model offers a chance for auto testing facilities to achieve the same high levels of accuracy, dependability, and repeatability.
