Mass Flow Systems
Mass flow rate is the mass of a substance (liquid or gas) flowing past a fixed point per unit of time. Mass flow instruments are used to measure the flow of air into or through a product. This measurement is utilized for leak testing and blockage testing (occlusion testing) of devices
Mass Flow Meters
Mass flow meters are devices that measure mass flow rates. They measure the volumetric flow of air per unit of time (e.g., standard cubic centimeter or cubic liter of air per minute) passing trough the device. Changes in the temperature and pressure of the measured substance may affect mass flow meter readings, when these factor change the correct flow measurements can easily be compensated for with proper calibration.
Choosing the Right Technology
Selecting the proper mass flow meter for your specific application is vital to getting accurate results. With over 30 years of system design experience, you can rest assured that Cincinnati Test Systems (CTS) has the right solution for your needs. We offer all common mass flow meter technologies used in today’s modern production environments, with systems that provide large test volume, elastic characteristics, and high flow measurements at target pressure, among other useful attributes.
CTS’ Mass Flow Meters
Through extensive application experience, the CTS engineering team has developed comprehensive knowledge of the factors that must be considered when integrating mass flow meters into a production environment. Knowing the best flow technology to use for your applications and how to obtain measurement repeatability and minimize test noise caused by environmental or tooling variations is critical to getting the most accurate and repeatable test. The flow range of a mass flow meter is also a key consideration when striving for optimum precision and repeatability.
