  • Improved Accuracy Specifications on Alicat Mass Flow Meters & Controllers

    Alicat devices are now more accurate & maintain accuracy to a significantly lower level than ever before. Improved Accuracy, Improved Resolution, and ±0.6% of reading or ±0.1% of full scale with new circuit board design provides an unprecedented new level of flow accuracy.

  • Signal-to-Noise Ratio Improvements

    Improvements in our Signal-to-Noise Ratio allow us to provide the fastest, most accurate, mass flow devices on the market. See how our new printed circuit boards achieve this.

  • Simple, Accurate Control for Enhanced Preform Surface Polishing

    An easy to use, low cost system for enhancement of existing glass lathes Ensuring the highest quality of preforms used in the fiber draw process is a critical step for all types of fiber optic cable. The preform is a specially constructed glass rod, from which a desired fiber optic cable is drawn. The preform […]

  • Mass Flow Control for Bioreactors

    Guest Contribution by Anita Renc, Director Sales & Marketing, TrigasDM GmbH / TrigasFI GmbH Biotechnology has led to breakthroughs in many areas of modern industry.  From new products and the sophisticated use of raw materials, but also to more efficient and environmentally friendly production of known substances and necessary materials. In addition, consistent quality can be […]

  • Theory of Operation: FP-25 Field Flow Calibrator for PM Air Samplers

    Alicat’s FP-25 and FP-25BT flow devices can be used to calibrate any low-volume particulate air sampler on your deck. These NIST- traceable field flow calibration devices are multi-parameter mass flow meters that display pressure and temperature. The FP-25 uses multiple pressure sensors to capture both ambient barometric pressure and internal flow stream pressure, resulting in […]

  • Air quality monitoring sensors: importance, emerging trends and challenges

    Alicat produces flow standards specifically used to calibrate air quality monitoring sensors. We offer a variety of high-accuracy devices (such as the Alicat FP-25) designed to help government agencies comply with US regulations set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA requires monitoring and documenting of concentrations of particulate matter and other criteria pollutants in […]

  • Future Leaders Take on Alicat’s Air Monitoring Market

    Alicat is proud to be part of the Halma family of companies. Halma companies work to create a safer, cleaner, healthier future for everyone, every day. Alicat’s air monitoring products contribute to the environmental and public health component of this mission. Learning From Our Future Leaders Alicat has been engaged in the air monitoring market […]

  • Fast, Flexible Leak Testing for Single-Use Bioprocessing

    Accurate simplified testing for small volumes and differing configurations improving on traditional pressure decay methods A revolution in bioprocessing is underway in the form of single-use technologies.  Single-use offers the promise of lower costs, improved flexibility and shorter cycle times.  But what happens when a single-use bag or component fails? It’s obvious that system integrity […]

  • Using Technology to Reduce Health & Safety Risks

    Technological advancements have improved humans’ ability to monitor, assess, and protect societies from environmental health and safety hazards. When it comes to the air that we breathe, particulate matter (PM) monitoring machines are one piece of technology used to keep society safe by measuring the presence of potentially harmful particulates. The smaller the particulate in […]

  • Precise Mass Flow Enables Novel Pollution Sensing Technologies

    Alicat Mass Flow provides accurate control of gasses under test The growth of the IoT (Internet of Things) is driving the need for smaller and more ubiquitous sensors. Normally, one thinks of optical or electrical sensors in this context. This type of measurement has typically been in the province of automotive and process control industries […]
