Aeration application for fish farming

Aeration in fish farming

Fish farms use aeration or oxygenation to provide ideal conditions for the fish. By supplying oxygen to the water, water circulation is improved which helps prevent gill diseases. Read the solution our distributor Flow-Teknikk supplied for a Norwegian customer.

Lambda probe

Simulation of exhaust gas to test lambda probe

Each modern car with a combustion engine has a self-controlling way to optimise the engine performance. A sensor positioned in the exhaust section of the car measures the oxygen content of the car exhaust gases.

View application note

Safety test for gas couplings

A coupling manufacturer employs a test setup for a specific type of gas couplings that are used for the United States market. These gas couplings need to be gas tight during a certain minimum period of time in the occasion of fire.

Flow control for leakage test of air ducts

Flow Control for leakage test

An application showing a leakage test method using a pressure controller and thermal mass flow meter working as a device under test (DUT) principle to guarantee leak tightness and temperature stabilisation.

View application note

Explosive Mixture Composition

Accuracy, reliability and safety are requirements for instrumentation used in test equipment for ATEX environments, when gas mixtures of precise composition are necessary.

View application note

Gas Consumption

Up to 50% of Bronkhorst's MASS-STREAM meters and controllers are sold with our multi-functional display which offers a totalizer function for consumption measurement of gases and many other features.

View application note

Valve seat testing in the automotive industry

Valve manufacturers check any metal to metal valve seats using pressure degradation methods. Manufacturers are in need of new methods for leak testing to keep up with customer needs.

View application note

CEM Systems for NASA Research

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) recently redesigned the system used to test the new space suit Portable Life Support System (PLSS) that is under development. In order to test the PLSS a simulated human metabolic load must be applied to the various sub-systems and so NASA needed to simulate the human production of CO2 and water vapor with its associated heat load.
