Bronkhorst Releases Space Saving Flow Control Solution

27 Aug 2013


Bronkhorst High-Tech has announced the release of a new flow control system for gas delivery which is suitable for use with fuel cells. By means of its innovative mounting concept, dubbed FLOW-SMS, a variety of components for mass flow and pressure measurement can be assembled to constitute a very compact gas delivery system. On a lightweight but still rugged mounting rail system one or more mass flow (or pressure) sensor/control modules can be combined with mixing chambers, (pneumatic, electrical or manual) shut-off valves, filters or any other functional module as per customer's request. Flow ranges can be selected between approx. 5 mln/min up to 50 ln/min or even higher. In case a pressure sensor or controller is included, the pressure range can be chosen between 0-100 mbar and 0-10 bar absolute or gauge.

As a standard, FLOW-SMS systems can be configured for up to nine channels. In agreement with the customer, Bronkhorst High-Tech will supply the completely assembled systems tested on functionality and leak tightness, ready for use. Customers will not only benefit from the space efficiency but also a reduction in labour for pipe installation and testing.
