Gas blending is an important application in the gas segment. This technology plays a key role across many industries, from heat treatment to medicine to analytics. Gas is an invisible but powerful medium. This is particularly evident in the generation of potentially explosive atmospheres. Designing and manufacturing a component for use in potentially explosive atmospheres requires considerable engineering skill, but designing and creating a facility in which these components are tested could be considered even more challenging. For one ATEX certification company this meant calling in Burkert Fluid Control Systems to help create an efficient testing facility.
To Type 8712 - Mass Flow
Controller for Gases (MFC)
Mass Flow Controller
The Types 8626 and 8712 mass flow controller are compact devices, based on experience in measuring, controlling and regulating fluids.
Based in Apeldoorn in the Netherlands, Kiwa ExVision is an independent test and certification organization that provides a range of services for manufacturers of equipment and components designed for use in potentially explosive atmospheres. In order to deliver the most efficient service to its clients, the company wanted to create a new test facility that would allow a pre-set mixture of explosive gases to be used for testing the integrity of new components. The engineers at Kiwa Ex-Vision had a very clear idea of what they wanted but they realized that making the concept a reality would require a different type of expertise. As one of the leading manufacturers of control and measuring systems for fluids and gases, Burkert Fluid Control Systems has over 25 years’ experience in delivering solutions for hazardous areas to a wide range of industries and applications.
