June 30, 2015 - Bronkhorst announces EL-FLOW Prestige mass flow controller for gases that can be tuned for extra fast flow response (down to 500 milliseconds) or extra smooth control, depending on the requirements of the user’s process.
Differential Temperature Balancing technology provides high accuracy and sensor stability and micro-processors with multistage control loops have been applied to achieve enhanced dynamic behaviour. The metal housing is of robust yet compact design. EL-FLOW Prestige features an on-board gas conversion model, various fieldbus options and customizable I/O functions.
The control performance is factory adjusted to swiftly respond to setpoint changes, without overshoot. Moreover, the controllers are highly resistant to mechanical shocks and pressure fluctuations, which may be caused by other devices consuming gas from the same source.
As an option the MFCs can be tuned for extra fast flow response (down to 500 milliseconds) or extra smooth control, depending on the requirements of the user’s process. The dynamic behaviour can also be tuned on site easily, by adjusting the controller speed settings via FlowTune, or by using the software tool FlowPlot. This free tool can also be used for device diagnostics or alarm and counter settings.
