IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT THE NEW FLOSCAN, INC.
FloScan was bought out last year and is under new ownership. The new owner has continued production of the original line of aircraft fuel flow sensors and we are working on introducing a new line of gas and diesel fuel monitoring display instrumentation by the latter part of this year or early 2020. At this time, we can still supply the following FloScan models or spare parts used in older systems:
- Gasoline and diesel fuel flow sensors used in marine and generator applications
- Fuel pulsation damper and flow homogenizer canisters
- FloNET / NMEA 2000 Interface Systems (gas and diesel models)
- TwinScan GPH/LPH and Tach Systems (twin gasoline models only)
Unfortunately, the Multi-function Meter models (7000/8000/9000 Series) are no longer available for resale. However, it may be possible to repair existing instrument heads depending on the condition of the unit. If you wish to receive a quote for any of the products listed above or for repair info, contact Joe Dydasco at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also request to be put on the email list to be notified when the new display instrumentation becomes available.
We thank you for your past business and look forward to serving you again.
History of FloScan Aircraft Flow Transducers
In 1972, Aerosonics, (a leading U.S. avionics manufacturer at the time) began testing the Series 200 flow transducers to determine its suitability for use in general aviation aircraft. Prior to that time there had not been a generally acceptable transducer for this application. The company required a fuel flow transducer which would withstand the vibration of an aircraft engine. It also had to meet the important FAA regulation regarding blocked rotor pressure drop which could not be more than 1.5 times the spinning rotor pressure drop. Our design far surpassed the test requirement since a blocked rotor does not change the pressure drop of a FloScan flow transducer. For this reason, and because of their superior accuracy and extraordinary repeatability, FloScan transducers quickly become the dominate fuel flow measuring sensors for general aviation with over 250,000 units sold. In fact, the pilots of the record breaking, non-stop around-the-world flight of the "Voyager" in 1986, depended on FloScan transducers for accurate fuel flow measurement.
