  • Video: How can I use a mass flow controller set to a pressure control PID loop?

    Ask Alicat: How can I use a mass flow controller set to a pressure control PID loop? Because Alicat MFCs are multivariate (they measure several things, like mass, volume and pressure at once), we built them to control on different things while still measuring mass. So you can set an Alicat MFC to measure mass […]

  • Video: How do you communicate with your Alicat?

    Ask Alicat: How do you communicate with your Alicat? The Alicat is inherently a very feature-rich, multi-variant device that outputs a large amount of data. It’s not just a black box with a simple input and output—it provides useful data in many different ways. Because of its versatility, it’s important to choose the kind of […]

  • Video: How do Fiber Optics companies use Alicat instruments?

    Ask Alicat: How do Fiber Optics companies use Alicat instruments? Making glass fiber optics, from preform fabrication on the lathe, through polymer coatings after drawing the glass is a high precision process. That’s why Alicat instruments are favored among leading manufacturers, because Alicat works with the glass fiber manufacturer to optimize their processes, reduce costs […]

  • Video: How can I accurately control my mixed gas flows? (COMPOSER™)

    Ask Alicat: How can I accurately control my mixed gas flows? (COMPOSER™) Alicat Scientific introduces Gas Select COMPOSER™, a better way to accurately measure and control mixed gas flows. COMPOSER™ is a revolutionary gas composition feature that allows our users to define up to 20 custom gas compositions with up to 5 constituent gases per […]

  • Video: How fast is your mass flow controller?

    Ask Alicat: How fast is your mass flow controller? Flow stability and accuracy depend on fast control response, and Alicat has the fastest mass flow control stability specification. This video demonstrates 0 to 100% setpoint changes with settling times of less than 30 ms and a control time constant of only 7.4 ms. For fastest […]

  • Video: What is the fastest way to validate flow rates?

    Ask Alicat: What is the fastest way to validate flow rates? Alicat Scientific’s rechargeable mass flow meters deliver laboratory-class accuracy in a handheld instrument that lasts 18 hours on a single charge.

  • Video: How do you dispense fluids in batches?

    Ask Alicat: How do you dispense fluids in batches? Alicat’s Precision Dispensing Package combines our optional integrated flow totalizer with fast valve control for batch processing on our flow controllers for gases and liquids. This video shows how easy it is to use, right from the touch panel display.

  • Video: What is Pressure Drop?

    Ask Alicat: What Is Pressure Drop? Pressure drop is the amount of line pressure that is permanently lost as gas passes through an instrument in a gas line. Alicat Scientific demonstrates the importance of pressure drop for gas flow processes and shows how you can greatly reduce pressure drop by using its Whisper Series of […]

  • Video: How do you control pressure in a closed system?

    Ask Alicat: How do you control pressure in a closed system? Alicat Scientific demonstrates the best way to control pressure in a dead-ended or closed system. Using a dual-valve pressure controller can save you money over a conventional single-valve pressure controller plus bleed valve setup.

  • Video: What does a potentiometer do?

    Ask Alicat: What does a potentiometer do? Alicat Scientific demonstrates how a potentiometer makes setpoint adjustments easy by using a Halloween twist on a classic burner control application.
