MQ–High Pressure Gas Mass Flow Meters

High-pressure, multivariate flow measurement in real time

The versatile MQ flow meter reduces the time it takes to verify or validate flows that are operating at high pressures (160-320 psia). Measure mass flow, volumetric flow, line pressure and line temperature simultaneously, all in real time.

  • Accurate. Measure flows with NIST-traceable accuracy for a variety of gases down to 1/50th of full scale, or define your own gas composition with COMPOSER™.
  • Easy to Use. As soon as you turn on the flow meter, it’s ready to display live flow, pressure and temperature readings in your choice of engineering units.
  • Connected. Alicat flow meters feature dual digital and analog communications by default and can be ordered with EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT, DeviceNet, Profibus or Modbus (RTU and TCP/IP) communications for easy integration into your digital industrial or laboratory network.

Performance

  • Available ranges: max 0-5000 slpm, min 0-10 sccm (see Part Numbers tab for stock ranges)
  • Flow measurement range: 0.01% – 100% of full scale.
  • Standard accuracy calibration, NIST-traceable: +/- (0.6% of reading on most instruments.)
  • Optional high-accuracy calibration, NIST-traceable: +/- (0.5% of reading on most instruments.)
  • Repeatability: 0.1% of reading + 0.02% of full scale.
  • Typical measurement response time constant: 5-10 ms.
  • No warm-up time required.

Operating Conditions

  • Compatible gases: 98 (MQ) pre-loaded selectable gas calibrations; additional mixtures definable with COMPOSER
  • Operating temperature: -10°C to +60°C
  • Max internal pressure (static): 305 psig (320 psia)
  • Max differential pressure (inlet to outlet): 100 psid
  • Proof pressure: 400 psig (415 psia)
  • STP/NTP: user-selectable (defaults to 25°C & 1 atm STP/0°C & 1 atm NTP)
