Top 5 stories to start the year with flow

At the beginning of a new year, it seems like a perfect time to look back at the many successful and interesting stories from last year’s Bronkhorst blog. On that account, I’ve made a selection of our most popular blogs published in 2018. 

  1. Real-time pressure and temperature compensation to optimize gas flow control
  2. Turbulence effect in gas flow measurement
  3. Miniaturization to the extreme: micro-Coriolis mass flow sensor
  4. How to deal with vibrations using Coriolis mass flow meters?
  5. Mass flow control at the camping

#1. Real-time pressure and temperature compensation to optimize gas flow control

Kicking off our top list is the story about pressure insensitive gas mass flow controllers for low flow rates. These  new mass flow controllers are equipped with an on-board pressure compensation functionality, so the instrument automatically compensates for inlet pressure variations.  Our product manager for gas technologies, Vincent Hengeveld, explains the theory behind this functionality
 

#2. Turbulence effect in gas flow measurement

An explanation of the turbulence effect is a very popular topic. Our Customer Service Department often gets the question how the effects of turbulent flow can be minimized, as our thermal flow instruments behave best using a laminar flow. Read the blog of our Field Engineer, Allard Overmeen

#3 Miniaturization to the extreme: micro-Coriolis mass flow sensor

In this blog, Wouter Sparreboom shares the development of a MEMS-based Coriolis instrument, currently the lowest flow measuring Coriolis mass flow sensor in the world. MEMS is short for Micro Electro Mechanical System. To learn more about the principle of operation and the advantages of a MEMS sensor, please read the whole story.

#4 How to deal with vibrations using Coriolis mass flow meters?

This is a frequently asked question within the flow meter industry. A Coriolis mass flow meter is known as a very accurate instrument and it has many benefits compared to other measuring devices. However, it can be a real challenge using Coriolis instruments in low flow applications in the heavy industry where you may have to deal with all kinds of vibrations. Ferdinand Luimes, our product manager for liquid technologies, shares his experiences with you.

Camping

#5 Mass flow control at the camping

In the midst of the winter, camping seems like far away. However, this topic remains popular during the cold days. Last summer we’ve explained all kind of applications you often encounter at a campsite, and the involvement of mass flow controllers. Experience the summer air for a brief moment, and read all about mass flow control at the camping
 

Furthermore, I would like to thank our guest bloggers of this year, who were so generous spending their time in crafting an interesting blog contribution.

Guest bloggers:


Surely you will enjoy reading these blog posts - if you haven't read them already. I wish you on behalf of our whole team great health, happiness and success in 2019.
