Flow instruments for a stable gas flow control

Reliable & reproducible mass flow control

For bioreactor manufacturers we have compact gas flow and liquid flow instruments in our product portfolio that can provide you accurate, repeatable and a stable gas and liquid flow

Bioreactor customers can benefit from a large dynamic range to measure and control a wide flow range to the bioprocess. The large dynamic range offers systems builders the benefit of reduction in flow device models.  

To serve customers well, we have an extended product portfolio available with gas flow controllers up to 6250 ln/min and liquid flow instruments up to 600 kg/h.

Flow controllers for biopharma processes

Processes in this market can contain valuable biological substances, therefore a continuous process is required. To ensure this, it is helpful to monitor the ‘health’ of the flow instruments, such as: 

  • Detect temperature variation and measure the internal temperature of the instrument
  • Response alarm to help you monitor if the flow controller reaches and maintains its setpoint within the specified limits
  • Power-up alarm to directly return to the last known setpoint after a power failure
  • Measure & valve out; to detect changes in the setup over time
  • Monitor pressure of gas supply and bioreactor process (available with FLEXI-FLOW series)
  • Logging of historical data

What can Bronkhorst offer you?
