Mass flow and pressure instrument manufacturer Alicat Scientific has added new lines of high pressure mass flow meters and corresponding controllers to its fast-response, flow instrumentation product offerings.
The MQ Series meters and MCQ Series mass flow controllers have been designed to operate in high pressure systems at up to 22 bar and ensure stable system performance with a 10 millisecond (ms) sensor response speed and sub-100 ms control response time on the controllers.
A spokesperson from the US-based business explained, “Series flow controllers measure mass flow rate, volumetric flow rates and pressures. As a result, controllers can be set up for closed loop control of mass flow while also reporting pressure, or closed loop control of pressure while also reporting mass flow.”
The devices are preloaded with up to 98 on-board gas calibrations along with Alicat’s in-built COMPOSERTM gas mixing software composing up to twenty more custom blends. In addition, a full-scape valve range is automatically recalibrated to maintain throughput ranges.
