Alicat meters and controllers measure mass flow using differential pressure and a patented laminar flow technology, resulting in fast response with a rugged design. The turndown ratio of a flow instrument refers to the ratio of minimum flow to full scale flow that the unit can accurately measure. While the industry standard for this performance parameter is 100:1 or less, Alicat’s new 200:1 ratio covers a wider flow range with fewer pieces of instrumentation. Use of a single multi-range flow meter reduces instrument cost and saves valuable component space inside equipment cabinets.

Alicat’s mass flow meters quickly and accurately measure pressure, temperature and volumetric flow in addition to mass flow. For applications requiring precision gas flow control, Alicat’s mass flow controllers deliver accurate flow regulation of gases with the ability to respond to upstream gas flow changes, attaining and maintaining flow setpoints in less than 100ms.

Devices come pre-calibrated (NIST traceable) for Air, Hydrogen, Helium, and Argon as well as 16 other gases and 10 gas mixes. With an integrated digital display, Alicat’s flow meters and controllers can operate simply as a standalone device. For more complex operation, the product also interfaces with most process control software without requiring any additional equipment or controllers, a simple to install and cost effective solution.
