Flow Controllers and Meters

Alicat Scientific instrumentation provides precise flow control and metering of gases based on atomic mass. Near-instantaneous reaction time (50ms control, 10ms metering) gives you complete process control. Each MFC is pre-programmed for over 130 different gases and gas mixtures, and custom blends are available. All units have NIST traceable calibration.

    Alicat Scientific instrumentation provides precise flow control and metering of gases based on atomic mass. Near-instantaneous reaction time (50ms control, 10ms metering, < 1 second warm-up) gives you complete and accurate process control. Each MFC is pre-programmed for over 130 different gases and gas mixtures, and custom blends are available. All units have NIST traceable calibration.

    Unique technology of measured pressure drop over laminar flow (versus traditional thermal based logic) gives you the most flexibility in the field:

    • Variable flow range down to under 1% of maximum range with virtually no loss in accuracy.
    • Change gas selection in real time without accuracy loss or use of “K-factors”
    • Most communications protocols available: RS-232, RS-485, Ethernet, Modbus, Profibus, and more
    • Pin-in connectors available for drop-in replacement of competitive units
    • Reduce cost for multiple dedicated instruments on your system or in inventory
  • Pressure Metering & Control
  • Liquid Flow

    Alicat’s liquid flow meter and liquid flow controller lines are designed with laboratory and process automation in mind. The liquid flow devices utilize the same principles of laminar flow used in Alicat's mass flow meters and controllers, and are available in a variety of ranges.
