Describing it as both a space and cost saving flow control solution, Bronkhorst High-Tech has introduced a new system in mass flow and pressure measurement and control.
The FLOW-SMS utilizes an innovative mounting concept to combine a variety of components for mass flow and pressure measurement and control, and can be assembled to constitute a compact gas delivery system.
On a lightweight but still rugged mounting rail system, one or more mass flow (or pressure) sensor/control modules can be combined with mixing chambers, (pneumatic, electrical or manual) shut-off valves, filters or any other functional module as per customer’s request. Flow ranges can be selected between approx. 5 mln/min up to 50 ln/min or even higher.
In case a pressure sensor or controller is included, the pressure range can be chosen between 0-100 mbar and 0-10 bar absolute or gauge.
The three major criteria for development – space efficiency, service friendliness and flexibility of expansion or modification – are realized within a compact, top-mount design. As a standard, FLOW-SMS systems can be configured for up to nine channels.
In agreement with the customer, Bronkhorst High-Tech will supply the completely assembled systems tested on functionality and leak tightness, ready to plug and perform. Customers will not only benefit the space efficiency, but also a reduction of labor for pipe installation and testing.
Electronic Fluorocarbons (EFC), headquartered in Massachusetts, utilizes the latest technology for the purification and microanalysis of its legacy fluorinated specialty gases and rare gases for the medical and electronics semiconductor manufacturing industries.
As we head in to 2018, we look back on a very interesting changing market for krypton (Kr), xenon (Xe) and neon (Ne) in 2017. Ne supply this year continued to increase as new plants came on-stream while the demand was growing slowly after the big decline of 2016.
Electronics manufacturing is a highly complex sequence of adding and subtracting material, with the resulting sum yielding circuits sometimes less than one hundred atoms wide. For over 50 years, Moore’s Law has driven an industry to make smaller devices on larger scales.
Sherwood Valve, LLC has launched the company’s new, comprehensive 80+ page compressed gas catalog including industrial gas valves, medical valves, propane cylinder valves, alternative energy valves, specialty valves and pressure relief devices.
Month on month the gasworld website continues to be the primary portal for information, on a global scale, about our industry - be it through the provision of news and features, or information in the expansive company directory section. Launched in 2004, it is the only independent online news provider and information portal for the global industrial gas community and the larger end-user markets. The website also now incorporates news for gasworld US and Specialty Gas Report.
