1.3 Pulse Meters
Pulse meters vary in quality and reliability. iFUEL® Mobile recommends the use of high quality components. Also note that a pulse meter should operate between 20-80% of its capacity. If a pulse meter with a max capacity of 120LPM operates at at 120LPM, it may not offer the intended accuracy. It is recommended to restrict the flow to 80-100LPM for that meter. Also be aware that the location of the pulse meter will also assist in providing accurate data. Unless an air eliminator is in use, avoid installing a filter before the pulse meter.
Never install a pulse meter on the suction side of a pump.
iFUEL® Mobile also recommends not using a mechanical meter with the iFUEL® Mobile system. Rarely will 2 meters provide the same result. If the customer/client requests this, its best to use a meter capable or providing multiple outputs to a remote display and the iFUEL® Mobile system. iFUEL® Mobile recommends the use of Flomec meters. iFUEL® Mobile has had excellent results with Macnaught meters as well. Piusi meters are also good as a lower cost option, but may not be as accurate as other brands.
