MBS–Series: Portable Anti-Corrosive Gas Mass Flow Meters

MBS-Series Portable Anti-Corrosive Gas Mass Flow Meters measure mass flow and volumetric flow rates for 130+ gases, including 32+ corrosives, making them ideal for on-the-go calibration, verification, and validation of processes flowing aggressive gases.
  • Aggressive gas compatibility. Wetted materials compatible with 32+ pure corrosive gases and most refrigerant gases.
  • Portable & durable. Built to be carried around, with a battery lifetime of up to 18 hours and drop-resistance.
  • Versatile & accurate. Real-time measurements with NIST-traceable accuracy to ±(0.4% of reading + 0.2% of full scale) for 130+ gases, including custom-defined mixtures.
  • Fast, multivariate data. Millisecond-response times immediately upon powering up, to display flow, pressure, and temperature readings in real-time, in your choice of engineering units.
