Gill Sensors Wins Two Awards for Ultrasonic Fuel Flow Meter at Autosport International

At the recently held Autosport International show held in Birmingham, UK, Gill Sensors was awarded the Graham Jones Innovation of the year as well as the Autosport Engineering Best Technical Innovation 2012 for the Ultrasonic Fuel Flow Meter designed for race car applications.

Ultrasonic Fuel Flow Meter

Launched recently in America and Europe, the Ultrasonic Fuel Flow Meter is a lightweight and robust solution capable of withstanding extreme vibration levels and extreme temperatures encountered by a vehicle in marine, military, motorsport as well as in industrial testing applications.

The marketing head at Gill Sensors, Mike Rees stated that the company aimed at providing the requirements of the growing motorsport industry, which required a solution for the close monitoring of the fuel usage along with fuel efficiency. The flow meter provides race teams, engine developers and governing bodies with the means to monitor fuel usage and fuel flow in real-time.

The bi-directional pulsating flow rate of the fuel is accurately detected by the flow meter with 0.3 % accuracy. This is made possible by the integration of theproven ultrasonic measurement technology. The Ultrasonic Fuel Flow Meter does not feature any mechanical moving parts, thus eliminating mechanical damping and subsequently a higher accuracy of measurement.

The Ultrasonic Fuel Flow Meter can be used with several fuel types including ethanol blends, diesel, gasoline, Avgas and petroleum. The applications of the Gill fuel flow meter includes fuel flow measurement in race cars, marine fuel flow meters in boats and ships, fuel flow metering in light aircrafts, fuel flow monitoring in military vehicles and liquid flow monitoring in industrial and process control applications.
