  • How the Gas Totalizer on a Mass Flow Controller Works

    How the gas totalizer on a mass flow controller works Mass flow totalizing is used for measuring how much accumulated mass of a particular gas (or gas mixture) has been flowed in a process, where a meter alone will measure the rate of flow at any given moment. Alicat mass flow meters have a totalizer […]

  • Understanding How to Tare Your Alicat Device

    Understanding how to tare your Alicat device What is tare? Why is it important? And how do I tare? Setting the tare takes a sensor signal and sets it as zero in flow or pressure. A zero setpoint results in closing of the valve (on controllers, not meters) and creates a known “no flow” condition. […]

  • Video: Tuning the PD Settings on Your Alicat Instrument

    Tuning the PD settings on your Alicat instrument If you ever find your Alicat controller struggling to efficiently meet the desired setpoint, it may mean your PD settings need to be adjusted. This video shows how to change your PD settings without having to send the device back to the factory; with options through FlowVision, […]

  • Video: Standard Temperature and Pressure Settings on a Mass Flow Controller

    Standard Temperature and Pressure settings on a mass flow controller Obtaining correlated data between instruments is essential, which is why we made it easy to change your Standard Temperature and Pressure designation on an Alicat mass flow controller (or mass flow meter) in the field. No need to send your flow controller or flow meter […]

  • Video: Rolamite Valve Swap

    Rolamite Valve Swap This video shows how to change the position of a large Rolamite valve on an Alicat gas mass flow controller (part numbers beginning with MCR), from upstream to downstream. Moving the valve is done to place the sensor in a different location of the flow stream relative to the valve, because of […]
