Sierra Instruments, Inc. announced the release of its new Max-Trak Model 180 Industrial Mass Flow Controller for gases. The Max-Trak is the industry's only NEMA 6 (IP67) Compliant Industrial Mass Flow Controller.
In applications where frequent wash-down or hose-down is required, such as chemical processing, pharmaceutical, biotech, even food and beverage, Max-Trak outperforms the competition as it conforms to the rigorous requirements of NEMA 6 and IP67. In addition, the instrument comes with the only fully enclosed valve design to drastically minimize leak-in paths for MAXIMUM protection.
Excellent accuracy and reliability coupled with unsurpassed instrument stability offer customers a gas mass flow controller that is strong, effective and dependable. Max-Trak measures and controls gas mass flow rates from 0 to 200 slpm (up to 400 slpm upon request) in a flow body a little over 5 inches long. It has an accuracy of +/- 1% of full scale, and a repeatability of +/- 0.2% of full scale to ensure process stability, even under changing conditions.
Based upon Sierra's successful Smart-Trak series of mass flow controllers, Max-Trak includes Dial-A-Gas technology allowing users to select from up to 10 gases in one instrument--creating great flexibility. Other key features of the Max-Trak include both digital and analog communication, genuine 50:1 turndown, operation at low differential pressures, and the ability to view and change critical parameters in the field without sacrificing performance or returning the instrument to a service center.
A true industrial product, Max-Trak's all stainless steel flow path (with electrometric seals to eliminate leaks) is suitable for any clean gas, including corrosives and toxics. The small footprint (5.25 x 2.0) and standard terminal strip make installation easy.
