Bronkhorst Cori-Tech has released a new option for its mini CORI-FLOW™ series of mass flow meters for low flow rates. The compact flow meters, operating via the Coriolis principle, are now available with IECEx and ATEX approval II 2G Ex d IIB T6 for use in hazardous areas.
The Netherlands-based company explains that the instrument is built into a rugged enclosure with a separated compartment for the electronics. The flow meters, suitable for both liquid and gas flow applications, cover flow rates from 0.1 g/h to 30 kg/h and can be used in systems with pipeline pressures up to 140 bar (2000 psi).
The unique design of the miniature Coriolis sensor features superior response time and high accuracy, irrespective of changing operating conditions with regard to pressure, temperature, density, conductivity and viscosity.
Mini CORI-FLOW™ mass flow meters offer integrated PID control for close-coupled control valves or pumps, constituting compact Coriolis mass flow control loops. The instruments offer both analog and RS-232 communication, optional fieldbus interfaces and additional functions such as alarms, totalizer (to measure fluid consumption) and batch dosing.
The mass flow meters feature fluid temperature and density as secondary digital outputs. As an option, the Coriolis flow meter can be equipped with a heater to prevent condensation or solidification inside the instrument.
Applications can be found in process control systems as for example in food, chemical and petrochemical plants.
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.
