Bronkhorst has announced it has launched their new model “T23” – a compact mass flow controller for harsh environments that is ideal for low pressure drop applications and less sensitive to moisture than thermal devices.

The electronics housing is of rugged design according IP65 (dust and waterproof). The flow meters and controllers are available with optional ATEX approval for use in Category 3, Zone 2 hazardous areas.

The “T23” is a compact Mass Flow Controller with a newly developed integrated, direct operating valve that can cope with high gas flow rates. The maximum flow control range of the instrument is 4-200l/min. Both analog I/O signals and RS232 connection are available as a standard feature. In addition to this there is the possibility of integrating an interface board with DeviceNet™, PROFIBUS DP, Modbus or FLOW-BUS protocol.

Applications can be found in process control systems as for example in food, chemical and petrochemical plants.
