Alicat M Series Digital / Analog Mass Flow Meters

  • Simplicity
    Alicat M series mass flow meters were designed to be used as a stand-alone device. With the native display, a user can easily change the configuration of the meter without the need for computers, complicated software or scripts.

  • Alicat M series flow meters require very little power to run thereby reducing operating costs. M series flow instruments 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 M series mass flow meters also measure pressure, temperature and volumetric flow in addition to mass flow which means fewer instruments you will have to buy and install. Adding a allows users to see how much media has flowed through the system, making it a great way to monitor usage and identify waste.
  • Versatility
    M series mass flow meters are available in any flow range from 0.5SCCM through 2000+SLPM. They are equipped with multiple analog outputs in addition to the RS-232 digital output. The M series meter can also be orderd as a to make a stand alone secondary calibration standard or flow verification meter.
  • Small Size
    The M series mass flow meter has a footprint of 2.38'X1.050' through 5.2'X2.9' making it easy to integrate into systems or to use as a stand-alone calibrator.
  • Dependability
    There are currently over 60,000 Alicat products in service around the world. Alicat mass flow meters are being used in processes like leak detection, flow monitoring and atmospheric testing.
    All Alicat Scientific mass flow meter calibrations are .
  • Digital or analog mass flow meters, regardless of manufacturer, serve a single measure the flow of gases through a system. Mass flow meters must be accurate, versatile, dependable and cost effective.The Alicat Scientific's M series digital / analog mass flow meter was designed to meet and exceed the requirements that customers place on mass flow meters:
