Liquid Propane Gas (LPG) Flow Meter – GPI Flow Meter Application
Flow Meter Application:
Service stations and other fuel outlets sell propane via a traditional retail dispenser and also using a secondary line to fill portable LPG bottles. Selling propane in portable LPG bottles requires measurement by weight as opposed to volume. Customers require a simple, accurate way to capture total dispensed propane to control inventory. Reconciling records and inventory can take time and the confidence in accuracy is often a concern.
Flow Meter Problem:
Stations need a way to monitor propane dispensed by volume and by weight for inventory tracking. The propane dispenser uses volume measurement while portable bottles are sold by weight. The solution to track both amounts requires accuracy, simplicity and must be economical. This application requires reliable measurement with easy maintenance.
