Mass Flow Controller

Mass Flow Controller

Mass flow controllers (MFCs) are becoming more common in applications which require the delivery of accurate gas flow. SAI offers Alicat Scientific Mass Flow Controllers which are known for accuracy and flexibility, Inbuilt display, Multiple Gas Flows and wide Range of Flow Rate.

Alicat MFCís can be ordered in flow ranges between 0.5SCCM and 3000SLPM with control speeds of 50ms to stabilize even the most unstable gas sources. Alicat MFCs also come standard with a fully functional push button display that allow users access to the majority of the controllerís settings without the need for specialized controls or software; 30 on board user selectable gas calibrations allow users to change process gases on the fly without the need for costly and time consuming recalibrations; 200:1 turndown ratio allowing the controller to flow as low as 1/200th of itís full scale range; And, the industryís only, lifetime warranty which can save hundreds of dollars in repair costs over the life of the controller.
