Meet an Alicat: In the lab with Foose

by Leigh Moyer The Alicat Touch When you call Alicat you will never hear a robotic voice directing you to press some combination of numbers. You will never be left to navigate a frustrating menu. You will never have to fend for yourself on the phone. When you call Alicat, or chat with us online,…

Differential pressure-based laminar flow measurements are faster than thermal

by Alyssa Jenkins Mass flow controllers need to be accurate and reliable. And thermal-capacitance based instruments can meet those requirements. But when a process or experiment needs high accuracy, faster response times and flexibility, thermal can come up short. At Alicat, our MC-series mass flow controllers use differential pressure-based laminar flow measurement. By forcing the…

Two pressure controllers are better than one in extreme environments

by Jesse Arenstein Some industrial and analytical applications, especially applications with mixed phase fluids, corrosive media or extreme temperatures, can be better handled by purely mechanical classic industrial regulators than electronic pressure controllers. Purely mechanical regulators don’t usually have the same susceptibilities to these types of conditions that electronic pressure controllers do. However, there is a…
