The longstanding popularity of variable area flow meters is well warranted, as it’s been the go-to piece of equipment for the measurement of gas, liquid and steam flow for a century. But as the times change and processing of petrochemicals and other petroleum-based products becomes more globalized, finding cost-effective and reliable measurement devices is growing in importance.
Our free webinar, “One World One Product: Bringing a Global Perspective to Metal Tube Variable Area Flow Meters,” on April 16 you will give you the opportunity to learn about the most recent innovations in VA flow meters, including a brand new product just entering the market now.
You will learn how to use the best product for your project or company to minimize plant downtime, get tips on making sure you have the right VA meter for your specs, and more. Receive a thorough overview of exactly how a VA meter works from our experts, as well as tips on how to find a supplier that best suits your service, inspection, and team needs.
The key speaker will be Jim Dillon, a global product manager at Brooks Instrument and an expert in the field of both rotameters and engineering. So come and learn from the best. You can enroll by clicking here.
Winning Control Global’s Readers Choice Awards is probably one of the best awards that we can win because the winners are chosen by the users of instrumentation. You can check out the full press release about this here, but below is the gist.
Brooks was honored in three categories, variable area flowmeter, positive displacement flowmeter and thermal mass flowmeter. For variable area flow meter, this was the 15th consecutive year we have place 1st in this category. And for positive displacement flow meter, this is the 18th consecutive year we have placed 1st. Quite an achievement if I do say so myself! For thermal mass flow meter, we placed 4th this year.
Thanks to Control Global and a special thank you to all the readers of Control Magazine that voted for Brooks!

Well, last week sure was a busy one for Brooks with two major trade shows going on for us at the same time. We had the Fuel Cell Seminar in Orlando, FL and the Chem Show in New York, NY last week. I personally attended the Chem Show in NYC. The show was much smaller than in years past but we still made some good contacts and spoke with a lot of customers searching for flow meters and flow controllers. Not to mention our direct liquid injection vaporizer system. I always find it humorous that our magical floating ping pong demo attracts so much attention. It’s so simple yet everyone loves to stop and see how we are using our 4800 Series mass flow controller and 1355 Sho-Rate flowmeter to levitate a ping pong ball in mid air! Read more…

During the same exact week that we’ll be at the Chem Show, we’ll also being exhibiting at the Fuel Cell Seminar, dividing and conquering! You’ll see our industry experts Jan Christensen and Nigel Glover hanging out and ready to talk flowmeters with you at our booth, which is booth #412.
We have a lot of great new products to showcase at this years Fuel Cell Seminar like the SLA5800 Series digital thermal mass flow controllers and mass flow meters. The SLA5800 Series elastomer sealed digital thermal mass flow meters and mass flow controllers offer unparalleled flexibility and performance for the fuel cell industry. They offer faster response, better accuracy and improved control over traditional analog devices. Industry leading repeatability ensures a stable process even under changing conditions. The devices’ self diagnostics and alarms eliminate downtime. These devices have a proven track record in many fuel cell test stands, so stop by and ask Nigel or Jan about them. Read more…

It’s time for the Chem Show again. For Brooks, it’s nice that this show is right around the corner from our headquarters in Hatfield, PA … just a simple train ride up to New York. I’m looking forward to the Chem Show and if you are going, be sure to stop by our booth, booth #303.
We have a lot of new stuff to share with everyone at the Chem Show this year. We have our new vacuum capacitance manometers, the CMC and XacTorr Series vacuum capacitance manometers. These capacitance diaphragm gauges incorporate industry-leading features to improve measurement reliability, minimize drift, resist diaphragm contamination and minimize thermal effects in vacuum measurement applications.

I’m really excited to announce the availability of a low flow rate option for our Model MT3809 armored rotameters. The MT3809 variable area flow meter is now capable of accurately measuring flow rates as low as 5 L/h of air and 0.08 L/h of water with this new option. We’ve had customers requesting this new option but the real advantage is that we now have HART communications for a low flow armored flow meter. Read more…

We continue to add more products to our e-commerce website, www.BrooksInstrument.com/Shop. We just added the model 8601 pressure regulator this week. There six different variations of the model 8601 available now in addition to the glass tube variable area flow meters, plastic tube variable area flow meters, and pressure gauges. Read more…
Later this week we’ll be hanging out with our local sales agent in Puerto Rico, MR Franceschini (MRF) at the Interphex Puerto Rico trade show. Each year Brooks partner’s up with MRF to exhibit. Boy does this trade show do it right. It’s on Thursday and Friday and starts each day at 1pm and ends at 8pm. The show has a party atmosphere and everyone that comes truly seems to have a good time. It’s the best way to mix business with pleasure. I had the pleasure of attending this trade show myself years ago, but our regional sales manager for this territory, Rich Fravel, will be in attendance this year, as he is every year … lucky guy!

It’s official! Brooks Instrument has launched its online store. Now we can give customers quick and easy access to the Brooks family of products. Best of all, we’re offering free shipping on all orders within the domestic United States.
Currently, the store offers the 2500 Series plastic tube flow meters (rotameters) for purchase. In the coming months, we’ll be adding pressure gauges, pressure transducers, mass flow controllers, mass flow meters and more.
Our goal is to get Brooks’ products into the hands of customers as efficiently as possible to support your application needs. So, stop by the online store and check back to see what’s new in the coming months!
The industry has spoken, and as a result, Brooks received multiple honors in Control Global’s recent Readers’ Choice Awards!
