I am a firm believer that the world is getting smaller each day. I credit this reduction in size to technology. We can contact anyone in the world in seconds by using texts, emails, phone calls and video conferences.
So how does this “shrinking planet” impact a flow meter and more specifically, a variable area meter (rotameter)?
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!
Last week, Brooks launched a line of industrial pressure transmitters, the SolidSense II® (ATEX). These join our existing line of ultra-high purity pressure transducers, the SolidSense II®.
Fast facts about the industrial pressure transmitters, SolidSense II® (ATEX):
- Superior corrosion resistance with a 316L stainless steel, chromium enriched wetted flow path, making them suitable for virtually all process fluids;
- Digital temperature compensation enabling improved process pressure measurement in plants subject to wide temperature variations;
- High accuracy combined with FM and ATEX compliance make the SolidSense II (ATEX) the optimum choice for demanding applications.
Short answer: “No.” But I’m not one to give short answers.
Any mass flow controller needs three things.
- It needs power (usually 24VDC; sometimes +/- 15 V).
- It needs a set point (quite often 4-20 mA or 0-5 V).
- It needs to send its output (4-20 mA or 0-5 V) to something.
When I hook up a mass flow controller on my dining room table (while my wife is at work), I need secondary electronics to do these three things. Brooks 0254 secondary electronics is a great power supply. It can power up to four Brooks devices (Quantims, mass flow controllers, pressure transducers, cylinder scales… anything needing 24 volts to run.).
