  • 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 […]

  • Totalizer tutorial

    Totalizer tutorial While a meter measures the rate of flow at any given moment, a mass flow totalizer measures the total accumulated mass of a particular gas (or gas mixture) that has been flowed in a process. The totalizer function can also be used with a mass flow controller to dispense batches of set amounts […]

  • Maintaining cryogenic temperatures with pressure control

    Maintaining cryogenic temperatures with pressure control Cryogens are substances that liquefy at or below 120 K under standard pressure (760 Torr). They are commonly used in applications to keep liquefied substances at extremely cold temperatures, including cryopreservation, rocket propulsion, and medical imaging. Two of the most well-know cryogens are liquid nitrogen and helium. Liquid nitrogen […]

    Brewing with Alicat: Controlling carbon dioxide sparging

    Brewing with Alicat: Controlling carbon dioxide sparging Beer is the beverage of choice for billions of people around the world. Whether ale, lager, or stout, carbon dioxide sparging is the process by which beer gets carbonated – making it the not-so-subtle difference between a refreshing pint and a flat disappointment. The average beer drinker is […]

  • How it works: Controlling pressure with a mass flow controller

    Mass flow controllers have a closed loop pressure feature, able to control pressure or mass flow rate. Simultaneously control pressure and measure flow rate.

    FAST achieves high-altitude ballooning goals using portable mass flow meters

    FAST achieves high-altitude ballooning goals using portable mass flow meters In 2011, Dr. Amanda Maxham established Flying Apple Space Technologies (FAST), a program that uses high-altitude ballooning (HAB) to inspire involvement in science, engineering, technology, and mathematics. FAST teams are encouraged to find creative solutions to the challenges associated with the launching of latex weather […]
