Overcoming Peristaltic Pump Limitations with a Flow Meter-Pump System


One of the prominent advantages of using peristaltic pumps is that nothing, but the peristaltic tubing is in contact with the fluid; this eliminates the risk of the fluid becoming contaminated. However, they do have a slight drawback... Read our article to find out more

Controlling and measuring the flow rate of Hydrogen and Helium


A team had an aspiring goal of sending a weather balloon on a course across the Atlantic Ocean. This means the balloon would be required to maintain a precise level of altitude - long enough to ride the winds from Southern Nevada to Europe, which is an approximate distance of 5500 miles. Can they inject the precise amount of Helium into a balloon – enough to generate lift? Read more...

Alicat Mass Flow Meters Vs Rotameters in Bioprocessing


All bioprocesses need flow meters; be it to drive chromatography and filtration, feed reactors, or monitor crucial process parameters. For decades, the humble Rotameter has been a staple of flow instrumentation, providing low cost and high reliability solutions across industry. But what if there were an alternative; one with increased precision, automation, scalability, and customisation? That would be worth knowing about, right?

A 14-step guide to choosing the best peristaltic pump tubing for your application


Selecting the right peristaltic pump tubing can be a challenging task but we are here to make it easy. Just contact us and we will do the heavy lifting for you. As an independent distributor we have access to multiple peristaltic pump tubing suppliers rather than being one and can select the optimal solution for your application. Peristaltic pump consultation is completely free of charge.

Introducing a Mini Coriolis solution for Liquid Flow Control


Accurate Flow Measurement and Control of fluids (Gas or Liquids) utilizing the Coriolis measurement technique is independent of the fluid properties. This well proven and long-established benefit is now enhanced by high accuracy Alicat CODA devices. Introducing a Mini Coriolis solution for Liquid Flow Control...

The Benefits of Coriolis Meter-Pump Systems Compared to Legacy Solutions


When it comes to non-pressurized systems, there is rarely a clear-cut answer as to which pump type is going to be best suited for any given application. Each have their own limitations, be it in batch or continuous processes.

What if there were a solution; one that could give you the best of all 3, whilst mitigating each of their downsides? What would that look like?

It would look eerily like Alicat’s brand new CODA Coriolis Meter-Pump System.

Extending The Envelope Of Flow Control Capability


The Problem: A reliable flow control is increasingly more difficult the closer you reach the capability envelope. Learn how PCT have made the impossible, possible.

Chilled Water Systems Flow Monitoring with No Down Time


The choice of a suitable flow meter to monitor the chilled water system can be as critical as the process itself. Adopting the incorrect flow metering technology can lead to flow meter failure. The failure of a flow meter may cause coolant to expel from the process further complicating the situation. Read here about the non-invasive clamp-on solution we offer.

Exploring the popular Gas Mixing methods


Mixing of two or more gases can be achieved in a variety of ways, here we will explore the most popular ways to create a Gas mix.
