MCDS–Series: Anti-Corrosive Bidirectional Gas Mass Flow Controllers

MCDS-Series Anti-Corrosive Bidirectional Gas Mass Flow Controllers can control mass flow, volumetric flow, or gas pressure in both directions while simultaneously measuring flow, gas pressure, and gas temperature of up to 130 gases, including 30+ corrosives.
  • Aggressive gas compatibility. Wetted materials compatible with 30+ pure corrosive gases and most refrigerant gases.
  • Versatile & accurate. Real-time control of flow or pressure with NIST-traceable accuracy to ±(0.4% of reading + 0.2% of full scale) for 128+ gases and 20 custom-defined mixtures.
  • Fast control, multivariate data. Millisecond-response times immediately upon powering up, to control either mass flow, volumetric flow, or pressure and display instantaneous flow, pressure, and temperature readings, in your choice of engineering units.
  • Easy integration. Custom process ports and electrical connectors, and your choice of EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT, DeviceNet, Profibus, Modbus (RTU and TCP/IP), or serial communications for easy integration into your industrial process.

Device Features
Included with each device
  • Multi-variable process measurements: Simultaneously measure mass flow, volumetric flow, gas pressure, and gas temperature.
  • User changeable units of measurement: Change the unit of measurement for pressure, flow, or temperature from our extensive list of engineering units.
  • Gas selectability: Select your process gas from any of the 98+ preloaded NIST-traceable gas calibrations in our gas list.
  • Gas Select COMPOSER™: Define 20 custom gas mixtures of up to 5 constituent gases using our Gas Select Composer firmware.
  • Monochrome backlit LCD with integrated touchpad: Easily read measurements using the backlit display and control configurations with the user-friendly integrated touchpad.
  • User adjustable setpoint ramping & limits: Configurable ramp rates allow the process variable to be controlled as fast or as slow as desired, and configurable setpoint limits protect processes from inadvertent setpoint changes.
  • User adjustable standard temperature and pressure (STP) conditions: Quickly change reference conditions without need for recalibration.
  • Valve close override and valve open override: Utilize alarms to quickly vent your system or stop all flow as needed.

Valve options & PID tuning

Your mass flow controller may be customized with one of the following valving options to ensure optimal performance under your expected process conditions.

  • MCD: small proportional control valve for flow ranges of 20 SLPM and below
  • MCD with PCA designation: high-performance proportional control valve used for some applications with higher pressures
  • MCRD: nearly frictionless large Rolamite proportional valve for flow rates of 50 SLPM and above

Note: Certain gases (including SO2, and Cl2require MCD with PCA designation.

Custom PID valve tuning ensures maximum performance for your specific process conditions.
