Work Smarter, Not Harder With Wayne's Xflo Fuel Meter

 
       
 

The Xflo Meter is the single most effective dispenser upgrade a fuel marketer can make. If you could only upgrade one piece of equipment then this is the upgrade you want to make. The Xflo replaces the Ovation’s stock iMeter to improve your dispenser’s accuracy and eliminate meter re-calibration costs. This allows you to capture unrealized fuel revenue and eliminate recurring meter maintenance costs. No longer do fuel marketers have to accept meter drift as a cost of doing business.  

Wayne Fueling Systems Xflo Fuel Meter Hero Shot

Wayne Fueling Systems has a long history as a leader in metering technology. Over the years they have continued to make improvements on their meters, evolving their technology to eliminate virtually all meter drift. The iMeter, a highly accurate, positive displacement piston meter, comes factory installed on the Ovation. However, this high-pressure meter has lots of moving parts that create friction when in use. This friction creates wear and tear on the meter which leads to reduced accuracy over the years. To compensate, you need to have the meter calibrated on a regular basis. No matter what you do, the wear and tear in this system is inevitable. This is what leads to meter drift. Before long the seals don’t seal the way they used to and the valves don’t close as tightly. The Xflo Meter improves on these inefficiencies to deliver even more tangible benefits for fuel retailers. Without question, the Xflo is the most accurate meter ever developed.

Advancements are based on a unique, dual-spindle technology. The dual-spindle minimizes contact between surfaces which decreases friction and pressure and improves accuracy and flow rate. With decreased friction, you have less wear and tear–with less wear and tear you have less product loss. As a result, the Xflo Meter rarely, if ever, needs to be re-calibrated.

Cut away of dual spindle in Wayne Xflo Fuel Meter

Cut away of the dual spindle technology - this set-up greatly reduces the friction created from a piston displacement meter.

Another key feature that advances the Xflo from its predecessors is that each device has a unique calibration identity linked to the accuracy profile of a specific meter. Each meter leaves the factory tuned to its own performance profile using multiple data points gathered across a wide range of flow rates. This data is then stored on the dispenser’s XWIP Pulser, providing a unique calibration signature for each meter.

Upgrading your dispenser meters to the Xflo will be the single best upgrade you make to your system. Research based on 200,000 gallons/month shows that you will save 12,000 gallons of product over the course of 3 years. At $2.50/gallon, this is an additional $30k that your revenue stream is missing. Also, by upgrading to the Xflo, you will rarely, if ever, have to recalibrate your meters. This reduces maintenance costs too. If you want to create a high performing fuel system then you need the Xflo.

This chart depicts the pressure differential vs. flow rate between Wayne's two meters, the Xflo and the iMeter. The Xflo, while still producing 22 gpm, has 6psi difference in pressure. This reduces stress and increases efficiency on your fueling system. (chart courtesy of Wayne Fueling Systems Xflo White Paper)
