Fuel Consumption measurement System(FCS) is a self-contained SKID housing Fuel Tank, Tank Weighing System (TWS) of Mettler Toledo (Model No. IND 570), Fuel Tank Filling Pumps/Flame Proof Motor, Temperature Sensors (RTD), Shell & Tube Type Heat Exchangers for cooling of Fuel and a Control Panel (CP) for user to interact with the system. All electronic/software controls & communication interaction with the FCS SKID is through this CP.

  • POWER SUPPLY: 220/4.2A,24V,DC

It is used to test the fuel consumption of locomotives .SS Tank of 150 Litres supplies the fuel to the TEST ENGINE through pump & filtration system.

Key Features

  • Filter Clogging Indicator Switch (6.0) which indicates that the Filter is clogged
  • Tank Weighing System comprising of 4 Load Cells, Flameproof Junction Box & IND 570 Indicator
  • Temperature Sensors installed to monitor the temperature of chilled water as well as the fuel.
  • Ball Valve at the suction of the Fuel Tank Filling Pump is MANUAL and has a limit switch which tells that this Valve is Open
  • Float Switches get activated in case of Fuel Tank overfill or Fuel Tank over flow
  • PLC Controller is connected with Temperature Sensors, Limit Switches on Valves and Filter Clogging Indicator Switches on filters and also Float Switched.
  • PLC Controller is also connected with Chiller through RS485
  • The HMI on control panel will always show the current status (Open/Close, On/Off) of all components in the Fuel Circuit.
