Full applications engineering support
Whether you’re looking for an expert explanation of the differences between mass and volumetric flow, interested in the specifics of low pressure drop for your Whisper-Series flow meter, or looking for the right pressure controller for your vacuum chamber, the Alicat global applications engineering team is available by online chat, phone, or email.
Alicats are cited in peer-reviewed literature on topics from carbon capture to polymer synthesis to surfactant characterization
Biosphere 2 was built to simulate a fully contained Earth ecosystem. In 2019, its rainforest biome was used to track the impacts of climate change on a tropical rainforest. The 80-scientist team used Alicat mass flow controllers to release carbon dioxide spiked with an isotopic tracer into the environment.
Cryogen behavior is highly dependent on the interplay of ambient temperature and pressure. Boiloff can be tightly controlled in dewars using back pressure and active headspace pressure control.
The Veloce echelle spectrograph is searching to confirm and measure the mass of previously unknown planets. Dr. James Gilbert at the Australian National University, needed pressure stability of 5 mbar in an 1800 L volume with significant leaks.
Inchfab is creating ultra-low cost, high performance fabrication tools. Improving process control conditions & heat transfer between chuck assemblies let them achieve greater repeatability and spatial uniformity.
Birds and mammals both produce sound using the MEAD mechanism. Dr. Coen Elemans et al’s study in Nature used a dual-valve pressure controller to study the aerodynamic engine sustaining vocal tissue oscillations.

Curious about the physics of mass flow, or the role of pressure controller in vaccine production or fuel cell development?
Our customers work in diverse areas and applications, and we’ve gotten the opportunity to dive into unique applications. We’ve also made tutorial videos, answered FAQs, and found that Alicats are robust enough to survive a drop off the roof.
