Massachusetts-based MEMSIC, global developer of MEMS sensors and systems, declared the launch of its initial series of efficient MEMS Gas Mass Flow Meters called METF2000. This MEMS series is the first one of the gas mass flow meters that has been released satisfying the performance and the price among the other conventional gas flow meters.
The function of this Flow Meter is oriented on the patented MEMS thermal technology, which monitors the gas mass flow, irrespective of thermal or pressure conditions. The easy-to-use functional interface and quality-enabled remote transmission protocol makes it suitable for a broad range of gas process regulation applications.
According to Steve Tsui, Vice President of Worldwide Sales, System Business, the high sensitivity and dynamic range of the METF2000 allows the users to monitor highly reduced gas mass flow rates precisely and economically than the conventional meter systems. He added that this system facilitates the users to update their flow metering solutions for saving current, optimization of the process and for performing other significant advancements.
These Gas Mass Flow Meters can be widely exploited in numerous food, chemical beverage, natural gas network and steel industries. The main characteristics of the METF2000 encompasses direct mass flow monitoring, resistance to vibration, large turn-down rate in the range less than 100:1, reduced flow sensitivity with <2 mm/s and less straight-run necessities.
