Portable flow meters – Alicat Scientific MB series

Alicat Scientific says its MB-series of lightweight portable mass-flow and liquid-flow meters use a 9V battery pack to make metering gas flow, pressure, or water flow in the field and lab convenient and reliable.

With up to ten hours of battery life, the MB series mass-flow meters quickly and accurately measure pressure, temperature and volumetric flow in addition to mass flow. The company says the meters can be used to verify proper operation of flow meters and flow controllers from any manufacturer, instantly take measurements in the field, and quickly test for leaks in multiple processes or systems.

Alicat says its patented laminar flow-differential pressure technology delivers highly accurate results with a much faster response time than that of competing technologies. Devices come pre-calibrated (NIST traceable) for air, hydrogen, helium, and argon, as well as 16 other gases and 10 gas mixes.
