Flow Control Innovation Awards honorable mention for EL-FLOW Prestige
Sales Advanced Training closed successfully
With a joint evaluation session yesterday afternoon, the first Bronkhorst Advanced Training program is officially closed. Twenty five international colleagues followed this new designed training program last week. Based on a new modular training concept all the attendees have extended their competence by receiving advanced knowledge, insights and skills dedicated to their needs.
New Sales Advanced Training week successfully started
Bronkhorst Training Centre has welcomed 20 colleagues in the Sales Advanced Training program. In this new international program, these students are taking the opportunity to extend their knowledge on Bronkhorst products, communication technology, product configuration and hands-on cases. This popular program is the answer to the growing request to develop competences on an advanced level.
How tiny particles can have a huge impact on liver tumors
Sometimes a patient who suffers from liver cancer cannot be operated or does not respond to chemotherapy. In that case radioactive microspheres can be injected in the bloodstream near the liver with the aim to destroy the tumour cells. Quirem Medical develops these microspheres and Bronkhorst Mass Flow Controllers play an essential part in the controlled evaporation of the solvent used in these spheres.
Product and Process Optimization from 3D-Printers in Industrial Production
Many people have a traditional inkjet or laser printer in their homes,
to print '2D' text and images on paper. 3D-printing, also known as additive
manufacturing, is a novel production technique where 'real 3-dimensional'
products are built layer by layer, made from scratch.
How much leak is a leak when testing?
Bronkhorst has recently been involved with the manufacturers of valves and valve seat testing machines. We were able to assist with a change in measurement technique from pressure degradation to quantifying an amount of fluid passing the valve seat under test.
New cost-saving PROFIBUS Gateway
Bronkhorst digital instruments built as a manifold or FLOW-SMS system can now be connected to a PROFIBUS DP fieldbus using just one single Gateway.

Ammonia Control to Avoid Fines
As a technique to reduce the level of NOx (nitrogen oxides) in boiler or furnace exhaust gases Selective Catalytic Reduction has been around for years, as has the use of ammonia as the reductant. The customer, who has been selling and servicing boilers and pumps for commercial and industrial applications for over 50 years, had been using a mass flow controller (MFC) which was not reliable or robust enough for the application and thus their customers were suffering from loss of ammonia measurement and control.

Bronkhorst CEM Systems for NASA Research
Working closely with NASA engineers to fully understand the application requirements, Bronkhorst learned that accurate, stable control of water vapor was critical to efficient and repeatable testing and therefore successful development of the new space suit Portable Life Support System (PLSS). Bronkhorst CEM systems are being applied to properly control the mass of water being vaporized as well as the amount of CO2 in the vapor.
The Next Quantum Leap for Gas Flow Measurement and Control
The latest generation of EL-FLOW Prestige thermal mass flow meters and controllers represents a truly ground-breaking shift in versatility and user-friendliness.
Good news! Our upgraded cleanroom has been classified in accordance with ISO 14644-1 Class 6, guaranteeing a reduction of dust particles in the area by a factor 10. The cleanroom includes a cabinet with a special vacuum cleaner, using UVA light to visualize any dust particles.
Customer / Supplier Design Partnership
Why be limited by existing design ? The needs of instrumentation specialists across all industries are hugely variable and it is hardly surprising that, sometimes, final design is constrained by what is perceived to be available rather than what the application really needs. The final result can therefore, again sometimes, be something of a compromise – an acceptance of the belief that to be cost effective a designer must avoid anything not yet known, anything bespoke or anything special.

Low Energy, Low Temperature Liquid Source Evaporation
Many industries require a liquid source to be converted into a homogenous vapour. Traditional methods have involved either bubbling a carrier gas through the liquid source whilst precisely controlling the temperature and pressure, or directly introducing the liquid source onto a hot surface or plate. The former is extremely reliable, well-proven and offers high repeatability/reproducibility once the controlled process parameters have reached steady state.

Reactor Vessel Pressure Control and Data Logging
Bronkhorst has developed a specialised combination of electronic pressure and thermal mass flow controllers for automated pressure control of reactor vessels. This standard solution can be applied for low flow lab reactor systems as well as for high flow industrial applications as for instance in hydrogenation processes in the food and pharma industry or at chemical plants, at either low or (very) high pressure (up to 700 bar). To optimize a chemical reaction, chemists must find the best combination of compounds and introduce these in precise proportions into the reaction chamber.

Mass Flow Control Improves Electron Collider
The Cornell Electron Storage Ring (CESR) is a 768 meter former electron-positron collider which is hidden beneath the school’s Alumni Field and a parking area. Throughout the 1990’s the CESR was the world’s highest luminosity electron-positron collider. The CESR now acts as an x-ray storage location for CHESS (Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source). During its long and distinguished history the CESR has provided radiation materials which have allowed hundreds of scientists and scientists-in-training to collect data for their research.

Cost Savings by Dosing at Low Flow Rates
A customer within the field of specialty chemicals was unaware that low to ultra-low flow control was possible and so was taking a vital raw ingredient, mixing it with water to create a carrier volume, and then metering and dosing it into the main product flow. This process added cost to the production method and, as the dilution step added variability to the concentration of the additive, the product quality was often compromised with a resulting additional cost of re-work to the rejected product.

CORI-FILL is Faster and More Accurate than Weighing Scales
Bronkhorst is offering a modern alternative to the gravimetric or weighing scale method of dosing additives, fragrances, flavours and colourants. This alternative promises shorter processing times, better product results and improved working atmospheres. Our latest CORI-FILL compact fluid dosage assembly, which combines an extremely accurate CORI-FLOW or mini CORI-FLOW flowmeter with a suitable valve or pump, is capable of dosing the exact amount of fluid, whilst multiple instruments can be used for the simultaneous dosing of compounds.

Mass Flow Control Enables Cost Saving Vapor
In the research and testing of automobile catalysts the chemical dodecane, a liquid alkane hydrocarbon, is used in the simulation of diesel engine exhaust. Customers within this research field were unaware that the amount of dodecane could be precisely and accurately controlled and that it could be injected in the vaporous state that they preferred.
