New Multi-Parameter Mass Flow Meters & Mass Flow Controllers 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
Hydrogen Real Gas Calibration up to 500 ln/min
Good news: Thanks to improvements in our facilities at our new location in Muttenz, we are now able to calibrate our thermal mass flow meters and controllers up to 500 ln/min hydrogen with real gas.
The following accuracy can be realized:
red-y smart & industrial series
< 300 ln/min ±0.3% of full scale & ±0.5% of reading
> 300-500 ln/min ±1% of full scale
red-y compact series
< 300 ln/min ±1% of full scale
> 300-500 ln/min ±3% of full scale

Unsung Heroes – LifeVent Ventilator: How engineers help to save people in difficult times
We all see the heroes in this difficult COVID-19 pandemic. People who take the initiative and risks to help other people. Except for the nurses, doctors, caregivers, public service people and many more, there are also engineers who make their contribution in order to save lives.
Kaan Burak ÇAKIROĞLU from SSN Machinery in Turkey put all resources of his company into the development of a mechanical ventilator.
Available Mid 2020:
Premium Capillary Mass Flow Controllers and Mass Flow Meters
Vögtlin expands its European product portfolio with the the SmartTrak®100 series. These Thermal Mass Flow Meters (MFM) and Mass Flow Controllers (MFC) are capillary based technology and perfectly complement the MEMS-based MFMs/MFCs.
Reliability for the verification of microbial environmental air samplers
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.
Mass Flow Meters & Controllers with Profinet & EtherCAT Interface
New video tutorial about red-y compact 2 touch display settings
The touch display of this digital mass flow meter offers intuitive navigation. Many variables make the unit flexible are easily accessible. A position sensor allows automatic display adjustment.
Improved repeatability & plug-and-play functionality for Low-E
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.
The Mass Flow Meter with automatic Screen Position Adjustment
Vögtlin Instruments GmbH, the scientific gas flow specialist, has the pleasure to announce the release of an updated firmware version for the award winning red-y compact 2 series mass flow meter: The new firmware comes along with automatic screen adjustment!
Efficient & precision Gas Flow Control in Biotechnology
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.
The digital mass flow meters of the red-y compact 2 series are the winners of the Flow Control Innovation Award 2016!
Each year, Flow Control presents the latest innovations and technology breakthroughs in the industry based on an open nomination and reader voting process.
We are extremely proud to announce that our innovative digital mass flow meters of the red-y compact 2 series have been choosen as the winner for this year’s Flow Control Innovation Award!
red-y compact 2 series now available with alarm option
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.
Vögtlin announces collaboration with Horiba in Japan
We are delighted to announce a collaboration with HORIBA STEC Inc. The Japan based Company is the world’s largest mass flow controller manufacturer to the semiconductor industry and member of the HORIBA group.
Vögtlin and HORIBA STEC have signed a sales collaboration agreement to sell our thermal mass flow meters and controllers for gases in the Japanese market.
This step is a further milestone in the growth of our global sales network. We are proud and committed to work together with the world leading manufacturer of mass flow controllers.
