Omega’s FMA-PC16 Series portable digital mass flowmeters accurately and rapidly measure the mass flow rate, volumetric flow rate, pressure and temperature of process gases.
The FMA-PC16 couples the FMA-1600A Series meter with fittings and tubing to create a portable gas chromatography calibrator.
Omega’s FMA-PC16 Series portable calibration units combine up to three FMA-1600A Series or FMA-LP1600A Series mass flowmeters with totalizers and high-accuracy calibration inside a rugged industrial carrying case with its own power supply and battery.
FMA-PC16 units include integrated push-connect fittings for each meter and flow software. At the heart of Omega’s mass flowmeters and calibrators is an internally compensated, laminar differential pressure measurement technology that yields linear results over a very wide flow range. This produces volumetric and mass flow data that is fully compensated for changes in pressure and temperature and corrected for the user’s STP. All portable mass flowmeters and calibrators come with NIST-traceable calibration sheets and excellent customer support, including technical phone support.
Omega’s FMA-1600A Series and FMA-PC16 Series mass flowmeters feature large integrated displays with touchpad accessible gas selection from 30 user-selectable gas calibrations and both analog and RS232 digital communications.
