SLAMf Series Elastomer Sealed Pressure Controllers

Automate your pressure control even in the harshest environments.
Models SLAMf10 / SLAMf20

Whether it’s dust, moisture, temperature extremes or wash-down requirements, the SLAMf Series elastomer sealed pressure controllers deliver the precise accuracy and long-term stability of our proven SLA5800 family of thermal mass flow meters and controllers. A specially engineered NEMA4X/IP66 enclosure protects our advanced digital electronics and ensures stable, accurate pressure measurement and control of your process-critical gas and liquid mass flows.
