Bronkhorst UK is leader in Mass Flow Meter / Mass Flow Controller technology for gases and liquids, Pressure Controllers and Evaporation Systems.
Thermal Mass Flow Meters and Controllers make use of the heat conductivity of fluids – both gases and liquids - to determine mass flow. Unlike volumetric flow measurement devices such as purge meters (variable area - VA- meters) or turbine meters, thermal Mass Flow Meters (MFMs) and Mass Flow Controllers (MFCs) are relatively immune to fluctuations in temperature and pressure of the incoming flow.
The thermal Mass Flow Meter or Controller is capable of providing direct measurement of mass flow, as opposed to most other methods that measure volumetric flow and require separate measurements for temperature and pressure in order to calculate density and, ultimately, the mass flow.
These thermal flow instruments actually measure and control the flow on a molecular level and so are able to provide an extremely accurate, repeatable, and reliable delivery of gas into the process.
Thermal Mass Flow Meters and Controllers can be divided into 3 different sensor principles:
