Benmar Offers New Fuel Management System To Commercial Industry

Benmar Marine Electronics, Santa Ana, Calif., which has supplied the pleasure boat market with reliable fuel management systems over the last five years, is now offering a commercial grade system.

Benmar's FMS-300 fuel management system was recently interfaced with several satellite transmitted vessel position tracking systems to report fuel consumption, vessel speed, and engine revolutions per minute back to the homeport for cost savings analysis. Because of the many variables involved, such as load and trim and engine, bottom and sea conditions, it can sometimes be hard to determine which throttle settings are best for optimum performance.

Benmar uses durable stainless steel temperature compensated turbine type fuel flow transducers to measure both supply and return fuel flow rates up to 750 gph.

Its advanced microprocessor computes engine burn rates, rpm, vessel speed through the water and will even receive speed over the ground from a loran, as well as many real time computations such as time to destination and fuel to destination.

FMS-300 also provides an excellent monitoring source for engine operating conditions to help identify a problem before it causes a costly failure and reduces valuable operating time.

Benmar offers the system for both gasoline- and diesel-powered vessels.
