Whisper™ Series

Low Pressure Drop Mass Flow Meters and Controllers

Low pressure drop mass flow meters and controllers are ideal for systems with limited source pressure. Instruments create minimal pressure drop (as low as 0.07 PSID).

  • 98 pre-loaded gas calibrations – switch without losing accuracy
  • Measures mass flow, volumetric flow, temperature, and pressure
  • Instant warm-up
  • 0.01-100% measurement range (10,000:1 turndown)
  • Laminar differential pressure (DP) mass flow measurement technology
