MF4000 Series Flow Meters: The Professional Choice for Low Flow Gas Measurement

Small flow measurement has always been a major challenge for many companies. This is mainly due to the characteristics of small flow and the complexity of the measurement environment, among other factors. In short, solving the problem of small flow measurement requires considering multiple factors comprehensively and taking various measures to improve measurement accuracy and stability.

Small flow measurement can be divided into two situations. One is to accurately measure the flow of gas or liquid through small pipes with high precision. The other is to measure the flow rate of fluids that flow very slowly. There are many common gas flow meters suitable for measuring small flow rates, such as differential pressure, float, vortex, and thermal flow meters. Some of these gas flow meters are suitable for measuring medium to large flow rates as well as small flow rates, while others are specifically designed for measuring small flow rates, such as micro gas flow meters.

The MF4000 series gas mass flow meter is designed specifically for measuring the flow rate of low-speed airflows in gas pipelines with diameters ranging from 3mm to 8mm. Its principle is based on the dependence relationship between the heat and mass transfer of flowing gases. By detecting the temperature changes generated upstream and downstream, the mass flow rate of the gas can be accurately obtained. The sensors in this series are made using microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) flow sensing chips and are suitable for various clean gases. The threaded and various quick-connect interfaces allow for easy mechanical interface conversion, meeting the requirements of various gas pipeline configurations. This product can be used in various industrial applications, such as process control and atmospheric sampling.
