  • 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. […]

  • What type of fluid can I flow through my Alicat flow instrument?

    What type of fluid can I flow through my Alicat flow instrument? Alicat devices can be customized to flow a wide range of fluids, however each device has its own unique capabilities. Taking a look at gas flow vs. liquid flow devices can help you get the most out of your instruments while minimizing risk […]

    Operating principle: Laminar differential pressure mass flow technology

    Alicat mass flow instruments operate on the principle of differential pressure-based laminar flow measurement.

  • Turbulent non-Newtonian liquid flow
    High accuracy, low-flow color dosing with Coriolis mass flow meters

    High accuracy, low-flow color dosing with Coriolis mass flow meters Many liquid laundry detergents are easily recognized by their distinct blue color. The addition of such blue coloring and other fluorescing agents adds trace amounts of dye to fabrics, both counteracting discoloration and improving brightness. Challenge: Inaccurate, inefficient pumps lead to noticeable variation Modern blue […]

  • 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 […]

  • Tech comparison: Alicat flow meters vs rotameters for bioprocessing

    Tech comparison: Alicat flow meters vs rotameters for bioprocessing Any bioprocess needs flow meters to feed bioreactors, drive filtration and chromatography, and monitor critical process parameters. Here we provide a comparison of the operating principles and key features of two flow meter technologies: rotameters and Alicat mass flow meters. We then provide recommended use cases […]

  • Bleeding your liquid device tutorial

    Bleeding your liquid device tutorial Alicat differential pressure based liquid flow meters and controllers should only be used to flow liquids. Sometimes, however, a liquid contains trapped air or gas bubbles. It is critical that the device only measures the pressure of the gas-free liquid flowing through the device (no bubbles), or readings will be […]

  • Measuring vent and greenhouse gas emissions

    Portable gas flow meters are use multiple flow sensors to capture pressure, temperature, and flow data quickly at the source.

  • 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 […]
