LIQUI-FLOW™ 'Industrial Style'L13I+C2I

Liquid Mass Flow Controllers for low flow rates, industrial style

Bronkhorst® model L13I+C2I Liquid Flow Controllers (LFCs) are suited for precise measurement and control of flow ranges between 0,25…5 g/h and 5...100 g/h at operating pressures up to 100 bar. The LFC consists of a thermal mass flow sensor and a microprocessor based pc-board with signal and fieldbus conversion and a PID controller for mass flow control by means of an integrated control valve. The "Industrial Style" LIQUI-FLOW™ model is of rugged design (IP65) for use in industrial environments or even Zone 2 hazardous areas, with optional ATEX Cat. 3 approval.

LIQUI-FLOW™ series are equipped with a digital pc-board, offering high accuracy, excellent temperature stability and fast response. The main digital pc-board contains all of the general functions needed for measurement and control. In addition to the standard RS232 output the instruments also offer analog I/O. As an option, an on-board interface can be mounted to provide DeviceNet™, PROFIBUS DP, Modbus or FLOW-BUS protocols.
