A biotech company producing all-wild algae has deployed Vogtlin red-y smart high-precision thermal mass flow meters and mass flow controllers to accurately monitor gas flow within the bioreactor process that cultures the algae.
Due to biotechnology being a sensitive science, small differences in process conditions can make a substantial difference in results.
The red-y smart thermal mass flow meters and controllers provide a reliable and automated solution for CO2 onboard totalising and flowrate indication to support greater process results.

With repeatability of less than 0.2%, the Vogtlin thermal mass flow meters and controllers ensure the same value every time gas is added to the bioreactor process.
The thermal mass flow meters and controls provide an electronic output, eliminating the need for operators to manually read the meters.
Other capabilities of the thermal mass flow meters and controls include onboard totalising, flowrate indication and the ability to adjust the flow on the fly to accommodate process variables.
