Title (EN) FUEL FLOW METER DEVICE FOR A FUEL DISPENSER, SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) DISPOSITIF DEBITMETRE DE CARBURANT POUR DISTRIBUTEUR DE CARBURANT, SYSTEME ET PROCEDE
Abstract:
(EN) A flow switch used on conjunction with a fuel flow meter in a fuel dispenser to determine when fuel flow rate signals from a fuel flow meter should be ignored in the calculation of flow rate and/or volume of fuel dispensed. An inferential fuel flow meter may be used as the fuel flow meter. The inferential fuel flow meter may be a turbine flow meter that comprises one or more turbine rotors that rotate in response to fuel flow flowing through the turbine flow meter. The turbine rotors may continue to generate pulses even when fuel is no longer flowing. A flow switch determines when fuel is actually flowing and fuel is not actually flowing. The flow switch is described as either a single poppet or dual poppet flow switch in examples described herein.
(FR) L'invention concerne un commutateur d'écoulement utilisé conjointement avec un débitmètre de carburant dans un distributeur de carburant afin de déterminer à quel moment les signaux de débit de carburant provenant d'un débitmètre de carburant doivent être ignorés dans le calcul du débit et/ou du volume de carburant distribué. Un débitmètre de carburant inférentiel peut être utilisé comme débitmètre de carburant. Le débitmètre de carburant inférentiel peut être un débitmètre à turbine lequel comprend un ou plusieurs rotors à turbine tournant en réponse aux flux de carburant s'écoulant à travers le débitmètre à turbine. Les rotors à turbine peuvent continuer à générer des impulsions même lorsque le carburant ne s'écoule plus. Un commutateur d'écoulement détermine à quel moment du carburant s'écoule effectivement et à quel moment aucun carburant ne s'écoule effectivement. Le commutateur d'écoulement est décrit comme étant un commutateur d'écoulement à simple clapet ou à double clapet dans les exemples décrits.
