Low-Power Portable MB Series Flow Meters from Alicat Scientific

Battery power ideal for fieldwork and in-house testing applications.

Tucson, Arizona (March 14, 2012) – Alicat Scientific’s MB series portable mass flow and liquid flow meters utilize a 9 volt battery pack to make metering gas flow, pressure, or water flow in the field and lab convenient and reliable.

With eight to ten hours of battery life, the MB series mass flow meters quickly and accurately measure pressure, temperature and volumetric flow in addition to mass flow. The portable meters can be used to easily verify proper operation of flow meters and flow controllers from any manufacturer, instantly take measurements in the field, and to quickly test for leaks in multiple processes or systems. Powered by a standard 9 volt battery, the lightweight MB series meters fit easily into a pocket or work bag.

In permanent installation applications, the MB units may also be hardwired or wall powered, with the battery serving as a backup during power loss to maintain critical operations monitoring.

Alicat’s patented laminar flow differential pressure technology delivers highly accurate results with a much faster response time than that of competing technologies. Devices come pre-calibrated (NIST traceable) for Air, Hydrogen, Helium, and Argon as well as 16 other gases and 10 gas mixes.

The integrated digital display enables the MB series to operate simply as a standalone device. Users can change the configuration of the meter without the need for computers, complicated software or scripts.
