Burkert Announces Type 8712 Mass Flow Controller for Gases

Irvine, Calif., August 7, 2002 — Burkert USA introduces the Type 8712 Mass Flow Controller (MFC), built to handle neutral, non-contaminated gases at nominal flow rates of 20 mlN/min to 50 lN/min. Application areas for this MFC include fuel cell technology, process technology, packaging, food processing, environmental technology, surface refinement, materials coating and burner controllers.

The Type 8712 MFC incorporates CMOSens® technology, which enables sensing of the smallest amounts of gas flow, making the MFC highly precise and reliable. The Type 8712 MFC rapidly outputs measured values, with accuracy ±1 percent of Rdg. and ±0.5 percent full scale. Linearity is ±1 percent full scale. Type 8712 MFC repeatability is ±0.5 percent full scale, while maximum operating pressure (inlet pressure) is 10 bar (145 psi), depending on nominal valve diameter. Fieldbus communications capabilities include PROFIBUS-DP and DeviceNet (others upon request).

The Type 8712 MFC features an output signal of 0-5V, 0-10V, 0-20mA or 4-20mA. With a stainless steel body, the unit measures approximately 4.5 x 5.5 x 1.5 inches and weighs less than three pounds.
