Sensors are necessary when your application calls for accurate and specific flow rates. With these microfluidic sensors combined with our software, you have access to all parameters and can easily control them.
There are many cases in which it is crucial to properly measure the flow rate in a microfluidic system. That is why we have added two liquid flow sensors to our portfolio:
- The SLF3s-0600F for low flow detection up to ±2000 μl/min
- The SLF3s-1300F for higher flow detection up to ±40000 μl/min.
Both sensors are already calibrated for water and IPA. The liquid flow sensors are made out of PPS, 316L stainless steel and an epoxy-based adhesive. They are also easily integrated into new and existing systems due to their small size. For further technical details, please refer to our mp6 accessories catalogue in the download are on our website.
With the liquid flow sensor, you open up many new applications for your microfluidic system. They work together really well with the mp6 micropump and mp-Multiboard2. If you want to see the sensor and the Multiboard in action, feel free to check out our YouTube channel. There, we often add the liquid flow sensor in order to have more control over the parameters as well as the outcome of the experiment.
Every sensor is shipped with all necessary accessories to properly fit the sensor to the mp-Multiboard2 and the fluidic system. That way, the sensor readout can also be seen in the Multiboard software. There is no need to switch between applications when controlling the micropump and checking the sensor readout simultaneously.
For use with our mp6 micropump, we recommend the use of a pulsation damper, which you can get directly included in the store.
One liquid flow sensor is included in the mp-advance kit and is also easily added to the mp-select kit. If you have any questions regarding which microfluidic sensor works best with your application, feel free to contact us.
