Brooks Instrument expands line of thermal MFCs

Brooks Instrument, a supplier of flow, pressure, vacuum and level solutions, has expanded its GF40/80 series portfolio of thermal mass flow controllers (MFCs) in order to encompass a wider range of applications.

The company's new GF81 MFC can be used for higher gas flow rates up to 300 slpm, making it suitable for high-flow applications in thin film, solar, analytical, biotech and fuel cell, while the high-stability sensor and repeatability remain the same as the GF40/80 series.

The GF81 series features an all-metal seal flow path for durability and high leak integrity, flow control with fast sub-1-second settling times and 1% of reading accuracy to ensure reliable flow measurement and control in demanding gas flow applications.

A wide range of digital and analogue I/O options offer a broad range of communication protocols, meaning the GF81 can be used to upgrade existing MFCs or MFMs.
