  • Simplicity
    The MC series mass flow controller is very easy to use. With the local display, users can make changes to the configuration of the unit without the need for computers, complicated software or scripts.

  • Alicat's patented technology allow its mass flow controllers to have very few moving parts. All of the internal components are fixed in place resulting in very little physical change inside the MFC. Little physical change in the flow cavity means higher rates of consistency and repeatability. Alicat MC series mass flow controllers have a repeatability of +/-0.2% of FS

  • Alicat MC/MCP/MCR series flow controllers require very little power to run thereby reducing operating costs. MC and VC series flow controllers also have less pressure drop when compared to similar flow devices. Reduced pressure drop means more process fluids go into your process and not into your measurement devices. The MC series mass flow controllers also measure pressure, temperature and volumetric flow in addition to mass flow which means fewer instruments you will have to buy and install.

  • The Alicat MC/MCP/MCR series mass flow controller has a response time of less than 10ms and a control time of 100ms making it one of the fastest naturally responding mass flow controllers on the market today. responds to changes in this short video.
  • Digital / Analog Gas Flow ControllersMass flow controllers (MFCs) were originally designed to take the guess work out of precision gas flow control. Today, the demand for accurate and repeatable gas flow control spans dozens of industries. Demand for mass flow controllers is growing and customers are requiring MFCs that are easy to use, fast, reliable, accurate, cost effective and robust.The Alicat mass flow controllers are engineered to meet the following design criteria:

    Features and Benefits of Alicat MC series mass flow controllers

    Measured Parameters
    MC, MCS, MCP, MCR & MCRS Series Mass Flow Controller products measure
    • Mass Flow
    • Volumetric Flow
    • Pressure (PSIA)
    • Temperature (° Celsius or ° Fahrenheit)
    • Pressure and temperature measurements are taken and displayed in the same unit, alleviating the need for additional measurement devices. (MC, MCP & MCR Series)
    • Mass flow controllers can be set by user to control pressure. It's like having two instruments in one. (MC, MCP & MCR Series)
    • MFCs can be tuned for application specific control
    • Multiple digital & analog inputs and outputs
    • Digital and analog input and output available on the same device
    • 30-Gas Select on all units to reduce inventory costs
    • Control range from 1% to 100% of full scale flow
    • Tunable P & D to fine tune instrument's speed of response
    • Ideal instrument for a variety of processes, including: Fuel cell testing, vacuum coating, sputtering, process automation, semiconductor processing, micro electro mechanical (MEMs), solar cell manufacturing and flame tip control, to name a few.
