Features

  • Response time: <1 second
  • Full-scale flow rates up to 50 lpm
  • Maximum pressure: 4500 psig
  • SLA5840 with remote transducer combines the benefits of pressure control and flow measurement
  • Superior valve technology minimizes leak-by and maximizes turndown
  • Durable, robust metal top lid prevents damage during installation
  • Independent & easily accessible diagnostic/service port
  • Broad array of communication options including DeviceNet®, Profibus® and RS-485 plus analog interfaces

Benefits

  • Closed loop control eliminates droop & hysteresis associated with traditional mechanical spring diaphragm pressure regulators
  • One of the widest pressure ranges available on the market
  • Fast valve response reduces overall gas panel cost and increases throughput
  • Easy-to-service modular design provides options for factory or field service maximizing uptime and reducing total cost of ownership
  • User-accessible service port simplifies installation, troubleshooting and diagnostic tasks without disturbing flow controller operation.
  • Multi-protocol communication interface simplifies integration into existing systems

Applications

  • Thin-film processes
  • Chemical and petrochemical catalyst research and pilot processes
  • Laboratory and analytical systems
  • Fuel cell technology
  • Life sciences bioreactors
