Low Flow Coriolis Mass Flow Meters / Controllers for Liquid and Gases

mini CORI-FLOW™ MI-series Mass Flow Meters and Controllers are precise and compact instruments, based on the Coriolis measuring principle, designed to cover the needs of the low flow market. Bronkhorst® model MI130 Mass Flow Meter (MFM) is suited for highly accurate control of liquid flow in the range of 0…2000 g/h (which corresponds with 0…26,6 ln/min when used on nitrogen) at operating pressures up to 200 bar. The instruments are equipped with a robust IP66/IP67 weatherproof housing with screw terminal connections. The MI-series MkII are suitable for an industrial area up to pollution degree 3 with additional gas or dust (Ex) atmosphere (zone 2/22 or EPL Gc/Dc).

The instrument contains smart electronics, featuring alarm and counter functions, and a PID controller for optional mass flow control by means of a separately mounted control valve or pump. With regard to connectivity, the instruments can be equipped with a wide range of fieldbus options, beside their standard analog and RS232 I/O communication.
