FLOSCAN CASE STUDY
NOx Reporting Made Simple
“Top Gun” Naval Air Station Chooses FloScan
“After extensive research on the performance and reliability of fuel monitoring systems, the person in charge of generator operations at NAS Fallon concluded that FloScan was the best product for the project.”

Introduction:

FloScan Fuel Computers are the system of choice for use on industrial generators and with good reason. The initial cost of purchase and installation makes them cost effective. They are extremely accurate, meeting EPA reporting requirements for tracking NOx emissions while keeping tabs on fuel use and even for identifying incidents of fuel theft. Add to that the simple fact that FloScan fuel flow sensors are specifically designed for use on diesel engines and it makes perfect sense that FloScan is leading the way in the rapidly expanding industrial generator market.

Recently the United States Navy upgraded the 33 diesel generators in use at Naval Air Station Fallon—the home of the legendary Top Gun tactical fighter training center in the northern Nevada desert—to meet EPA reporting requirements for NOx emissions and to track operation time and fuel consumption. They engaged Chucagh Federal Solutions to establish the bidding process for the large and complicated project. The generators in use at Fallon were scattered around thousands of acres of the military complex; several inside buildings to drive fire pump systems; others in small outbuildings for powering runway lighting systems and still other autonomously housed systems used for backup power and other purposes. Some were located in remote areas atop mountains overlooking the base, others deep inside basement areas. The generators varied greatly in size and brand and

included engines manufactured by Cummins, Caterpillar, Detroit Diesel, John Deere and Perkins. NAS Fallon and the Fallon Range Training Complex are the Navy's premier integrated strike warfare training facilities supporting present and emerging National Defense requirements. Their mission is to support

The simplicity of installation on land-based generators was only one of the many reasons JHME and NAS Fallon operation engineers chose FloScan Fuel Log systems.
