Fuel Measurement and Conditioning Modules

Mustang's Fuel Measurement and Conditioning Module utilizes a Coriolis mass flow meter to measure the mass fuel consumption of test engines.


Standard Features


  • Coriolis Mass Fuel Meter
  • Measure fuel flow rates 0.5 to 125kg/hr
  • Pressurized fuel delivery to the engine
  • Cooling loop cools returning fuel to be cooled before being recirulated
  • Constant loop pressure
  • Vapor seperation system

    Overview


    The system connects to the fuel tank for supply and return of excess fuel. An outlet boost pump provides pressurized fuel going to the engine. A cooling loop allows fuel returning from the engine to be cooled by chilled water before recirculating back to the engine. A bubble separator collects the vapor from the engine return. A manual valve allows the operator to bleed the system back to the fuel tank.

    An inlet DC-pump pulls fuel from the fuel tank. In cases where there is an in-tank pump, a bypass to the pump assures blockage-free fuel devivery. A spin-on filter reduces particles in the fuel. The relief regulator maintains the inlet pressure to the flow meter. A pressure gauge displays the current settign. The Coriolis mass flow meter measures the flow rate which is supplied to the engine loop. A regulator maintains the loop pressure, which is identical to the engine return pressure. The engine supply loop consists of a vapor seperator, a DC outlet pump, the engine fuel rail and the return heat exchanger. Parallel to the fuel rail is a relief regulator which acts as a safety relief fo the DC pump in case of dead heading or as a supply pressure regulatorin case of returnless engines. In these cases, the engine return line must be plugged. The vapor seperator collects vapor coming back from the engine. A sight guage visualizes the pressence of vapor, so the operator can open a bleed valve and return the vapor back to the fuel tank.
