Gas Select™ gas list for Alicat mass flow instruments
Alicat laminar DP gas mass flow meters and controllers are equipped 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. Using one instrument, users may each of these gases at the same accuracy specification without any need for recalibration, thanks to laminar DP technology.
Alicat BASIS™ MEMS thermal mass flow instruments are equipped with a shorter 9-gas list, specified below. Switching between gases will change measurement accuracy.
Alicat CODA Coriolis mass flow instruments are compatible with an even longer list of fluids but are not equipped with Gas Select, since fluid composition does not need to be known for accurate measurement.
