Gas Select™ gas list

Gas Select™ gas list for Alicat mass flow meters and controllers

Most Alicat gas mass flow meters and controllers come with Gas Select, an onboard library with 98-130 gases. Any of the pre-loaded gases may also be used to generate and store up to 20 mixed gas calibrations using Composer. Users may switch between selected gases on the fly without any need for recalibration.

Below is the complete list of preloaded gases and their properties, including absolute viscosity, density, and compressibility at both 25°C and 0°C.
