Flow instruments for a stable gas flow control

Reliable & reproducible mass flow control

For (benchtop) bioreactor manufacturers we have compact gas flow instruments in our product portfolio that can provide you accurate, repeatable and a stable gas flow. As reduction in instruments is desirable for you, including short delivery times, we have pre-configured multi-parameter instruments available offering a large dynamic range.

To serve end customers well, we have an extended product portfolio available with gas flow instruments up to 6250 ln/min.

Intelligent flow controllers for biopharma processes

As the processes in this market contain valuable content, it can be helpful to monitor the ‘health’ of your instruments, to ensure the continuity of the process. 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 message & function to return; to directly return to the last know setpoint after a power failure. 
  • Measure & valve out; to detect changes in the setup over time.
