PCU–Series: Gas Flow Portable Calibration Unit
When a single flow meter won’t cover all of your calibration needs, consider using an Alicat PCU-Series Gas Flow Portable Calibration Unit. Alicat’s PCU is a secondary calibration standard that combines up to 3 high-accuracy flow meters of varied ranges (max 500 slpm) with totalizers into a rugged industrial carrying case for go-anywhere portability. PCUs can be powered by 4 AA batteries or the included AC/DC power supply adaptor.
- Versatile. Quickly calibrate multiple instruments across a combined turndown range of up to 100,000:1 (for example 5 sccm – 500 slpm) with easy push-connect fittings or optional compression fittings.
- Accurate. Measure live flow rates and flow totals with NIST-traceable accuracy (as good as 0.5% reading) for a variety of gases down to 1/1000th of full scale, or define your own gas composition with COMPOSER™.
- Rugged. The PCU houses the flow meters within a rugged hard case and can withstand drops if they should occur.
PCU’s are also available in our Whisper™ configuration with low pressure drop (PCUW-Series) and 316L configuration for use with corrosive gases (PCUS-Series).
