  • Penn Electronic Design Shop uses mass flow control to optimize olfactometer for short-term memory retention research

    Penn Electronic Design Shop uses mass flow control to optimize olfactometer for short-term memory retention research Advances in science have resulted in a much deeper understanding of the most complex organ in the human body: the brain. One remaining mystery is the mechanism by which a human brain retains and recalls information. The Gottfried lab […]

  • Livestock in field
    Native Microbials makes livestock lives better, more productive, and more sustainable

    Native Microbials makes livestock lives better, more productive, and more sustainable The microbiome discovery company Native Microbials has studied the highest-performing livestock and teased out impactful, natively-derived organisms to enable all livestock to perform better. We spoke with Martin Mayhew, Vice President of Process Development and Manufacturing. It has been “really interesting to see this […]

  • Frost Methane mitigates methane gas emissions from Arctic Circle permafrost

    Frost Methane mitigates methane gas emissions from Arctic Circle permafrost Methane, representing about 10% of greenhouse gas emissions, comes from one of two sources: diffuse or point. Diffuse emissions come from large, non-point sources such as livestock. As the name implies, point emissions can be traced to a specific source such as smokestacks, oil refineries, […]

  • Drexel University characterizes ozone production using mass flow control

    Drexel University characterizes ozone production using mass flow control The tropospheric air pollutant ozone poses serious risks to human health. It can damage the lungs, worsen chronic respiratory diseases, and increase susceptibility to respiratory infections. Unfortunately, due to continued emissions of its precursors from sources such as cars and industry, ozone concentrations are still considered unhealthy […]

  • DI water for electrolysis
    Nel Hydrogen switches to mass flow meters for more accurate flow verification on high-tech PEM electrolysers

    Nel Hydrogen switches to mass flow meters for more accurate flow verification on high-tech PEM electrolysers Hydrogen, the most abundant, energy-dense element in our universe, is a highly desirable energy source. Unfortunately, most hydrogen production utilizes natural gas and releases harmful greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. In an effort to improve the sustainability of hydrogen, […]

  • UPB tests hydrogen-diesel engine efficiency using mass flow meters

    UPB tests hydrogen-diesel engine efficiency using mass flow meters In an effort to reduce carbon emissions from the transportation sector, the European Commission is working to reduce CO2 emissions from transportation by 37.5% over the next 10 years. A promising approach is to focus on developing alternative fuels and technologies to replace greenhouse intensive ones. […]

  • Framergy purifies methane from natural gas streams using MOFs and Coriolis mass flow meters

    Framergy purifies methane from natural gas streams using MOFs and Coriolis mass flow meters Metal organic frameworks (MOFs) are a novel class of nanomaterials which are highly effective as a solid adsorbent and utilize their unique “cage-like” structure to trap molecules. Because of these properties, MOFs have been studied for numerous fluid storage, separation, and […]

  • Prototype Inchfab ICP-CVD System
    Inchfab uses mass flow and pressure control in nanoscale fabrication systems

    Inchfab uses mass flow and pressure control in nanoscale fabrication systems Mitchell Hsing, Ph.D., CEO & Co-Founder of Inchfab; Parker Gould, Ph.D., CTO & Co-Founder of Inchfab Mic Chaudoir, Ph.D., Alicat Scientific Market Manager Background: Nanoscale fabrication systems & Inchfab The increasing demand for computing power over the past 60+ years has led to exponential […]

  • KimPro Energy monitors oil and gas methane emissions using portable mass flow meters

    KimPro Energy monitors oil and gas methane emissions using portable mass flow meters In response to the global climate crisis, government regulations on venting flows and leaks are increasing. Standards for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions now require measurements that have historically only been estimated. Challenge: Meeting increasing government regulations KimPro energy needed a new solution […]

  • Biosphere 2
    Biosphere 2 studies the impacts of drought on tropical rainforests using flow measurement

    Biosphere 2 studies the impacts of drought on tropical rainforests using flow measurement As the Earth’s climate changes, scientists expect that a hotter, drier world will have severe impacts on global ecosystems, with many areas subjected to increased water stress and/or drought. However, it is difficult to forecast the specific impact climate change will have […]
