DFM fuel flow meters: measurement chamber lifetime increased by half!

Fuel flow meter DFM is the most accurate fuel consumption measurement tool.

Measuring chamber is the main element that affects accuracy and durability of the fuel flow meter. The picture shows measuring chamber working principle. Piston is shown with blue color and the chamber body with grey.

Since April 2015 pistons of DFM measuring chambers are covered with a wear-resistant coating which significantly increases the lifetime of the flow meter measuring chamber.
Furthermore, since April 2015 the meter body is made of a more wear-resistant alloy.
The tests of enhanced DFM meters been conducted by scientists of Physics and Technics Institute of Belarusian National Academy of Sciences. The report of comparative tests says that wear resistance of the enhanced chamber elements with a new coating is 2.8 times higher than previous modification.

Increase of DFM measuring chamber lifetime by half is a good bonus for integrators using flow meters as a part of vehicle monitoring system and for customer companies willing to implement fuel consumption monitoring of their vehicle fleets.
