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 accuracy and eliminate meter re-calibration 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 (PD) piston meter, comes factory installed on the Ovation. However, due to the nature of the PD system, there are many moving parts working together to dispense fuel. These moving parts interact with each other and create high amounts of pressure and friction. This is what leads to meter drift. Over time the moving parts begin wearing each other down and your meter slowly starts losing accuracy. Recalibration is required to regain meter accuracy. Soon this will occur again, prompting the cycle to continue. No matter what you do, the wear and tear on a PD system is ineviable (currently, all dispensers come factory equipped with PD meters). The Xflo Meter improves on these inefficiences by scrapping the PD system all together and using a spindle based system instead. 

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 minimal product loss. As a result, the Xflo Meter rarely, if ever, needs to be re-calibrated. Without question, the Xflo is the most accurate meter ever developed.

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 PD piston meter.

Upgrading your dispenser to the Xflo is the best upgrade you can make to your  feling delivery system. Research based on 200,000 gallons/month shows that you can 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, need to recalibrate. This reduces maintenance costs. If you want to create a high performing fuel system then upgrade to the Xflo today.

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)
