4142 FIA Ultrasonic Fuel Flow Meter

Market leading step response time (2 kHz internal measurement rate)

Flow rate up to 8000ml/min

Bi-directional flow measurement in high transient condition

The Gill Ultrasonic Fuel Flow Meter is compact, lightweight and designed to withstand extreme levels of vibration and temperature.

The Fuel Flow Meter uses proven solid-state ultrasonic flow measurement technology to detect bi-directional fuel flow rates up to 8000ml/min. The fuel flow meter is capable of monitoring both transient and steady fuel flow, flow direction, fuel temperature and cumulative fuel usage.

With no mechanical moving parts within the flow path, pressure drop is minimised providing true flow rate data with little impact on the fuel flow itself. Featuring a newly-developed electronic platform, which integrates the latest technology, the meter is capable of measuring fuel flow rate at 2kHz.

The Ultrasonic Fuel Flow Meter has been designed for use with all fuel types, including petroleum, gasoline, diesel and aggressive ethanol blends.

This meter has been certified by the FIA for use in the 2016/17 Formula 1 and World Endurance Championship (WEC).
