Vögtlin presents the latest version of d·flux: Enhanced capabilities for precise gas measurements

d·flux mass flow meter/controller with H2 Button

We are excited to introduce the update from the d·flux mass flow meter/controller! This highly flexible flow meter is suitable for most gases and offers a wide range of features. With a flow range of 0–350 to 0–1400 ln/min for air (2900 ln/min for hydrogen), the d·flux is capable of accurate measurements.

A special highlight is the ability to pre-program up to 15 different gases and seamlessly switch between them without losing accuracy. In addition, the d·flux offers a choice of analog inputs and outputs, as well as digital communication options such as Profinet, EtherCAT and Modbus.

Another advantage is that no straight piping is required, making installation and operation easier. Additionally, you can connect the d·flux to the free Vögtlin Connect app to create configuration logs and control the device.

Our sales team will be happy to assist you.


Fast Lead Times for Vögtlin Mass Flow Instruments

Supply chains are still very challenging and have our highest focus. Vögtlin Instruments GmbH has continued to build up its stock and increase production capacities over the past months. All of this with the goal of being able to offer you significantly faster delivery times again.

Currently our lead times are about 6 – 8 weeks. In addition, we have the ability to produce and process urgent orders even faster, so that you do not have long and unnecessary downtimes or even outages and therefore associated costs.

We will be happy to assist you with solutions around challenges in your flow measurement and control tasks for gases. Contact us.

New Multi-Parameter Mass Flow Meters & Mass Flow Controllers for Gases

d-flux multi series Multi-Parameter Mass Flow Meter & Mass Flow Controller for Gases

We are excited to announce today the release of a new product-line for accurate & afforable gas mass flow measurement and control for high flows: The d·flux multi series is a fast and reliable multi-parameter mass flow device for gases with measurement outputs for mass, normalized, volumetric flow, pressure and temperature.
The instrument is based on differential pressure measurement over an internal advanced laminar flow element. One of the many advantages of this laminar flow device is the ability to easily switch to a different gas without a loss in accuracy.

The new d·flux multi series features:
– Flow ranges from 0-350 ln/min up to 1400 ln/min up to 14 bara and from -20 to +60°C
– Advanced Modbus communication & analog output / Optional Profinet or EtherCAT interface (Ethernet IP available soon)
– The unit can contain up to 15 programmed gases in 15 different profiles (pre-programmed applications)
– The d·flux multi is IP54, 316L and has 1” process connections

Reliability for the verification of microbial environmental air samplers

clean rooms and other controlled environments

To avoid the risk of microbial contamination, environmental monitoring in pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities is controlled through aseptic processing, comprising microbiological test methods. In order to guarantee proper functioning of these air sample devices, regular verification is necessary. The digital mass flow meters from Vögtlin are especially suited for this task thanks to the high accuracy and repeatability, the long term stability and perfect temperature compensation.

Improved repeatability & plug-and-play functionality for Low-E

Low Emission Glass Manufacturing (Low-E) Application

Low-E glass incorporates multiple layers of metal or other compounds as a surface coating that provides high transmittance for visible lights and high reflectance for mid-IR and far-IR lights.

The coating benefits are excellent heat insulation and favorable light transmission compared to standard and traditional-coated glass used in the building industry.

Efficient & precision Gas Flow Control in Biotechnology

Vögtlin mass flow controllers in Bio reactors

Due to our experience we realize that most bio reactors are used for very critical and delicate processes where mass flow controllers need to be reliable, repeatable and flexible.

The quantities of fermentation gases strongly influence the mass transfer coefficient and there is no better way to precisely control gas flows than with thermal mass flow controllers from Vögtlin.

red-y compact 2 series now available with alarm option

digital mass flow meters with alarm functionality

We have the pleasure to announce the release of an advanced alarm module for the red-y compact 2 series which adds lots of functionality to our digital mass flow meters. The alarm module provides 3 configurable alarms. The following triggers are available: High alarm, low alarm, window alarm and totalizer alarm.

Together with the new alarm module we release an new firmware with new features & improvements:

180° screen rotation: They screen turns automatically 180 degrees if you turn the unit over. You can also manually set the display to permanently turn 180 degrees, especially convenient if the gas inlet is coming from the right.

Displayed flow and totalizer resolution setting manually adjustable: The display has the ability to read the flow in many different units, that means that the visible number of digits is calculated depending on the range and the units you select. Normally this is done automatically, but some customers want to see fewer digits to make the display less “nervous”. In addition to the automatic resolution setting of the flow and totalizer values, you can now set you own desired number of digits.
