Liquid Flow Sensor, SLF3x
The SLF3x, Sensirion’s latest innovation in liquid flow sensing, is now available worldwide from Sensirion’s distribution network. Based on Sensirion’s excellent 20-year track record in low and lowest flow rate sensing, the radically optimised mechanical design of the SLF3x takes an already well-established functionality to the next level in terms of price-performance ratio.
In line with Sensirion’s proven track record in liquid flow sensing, the SLF3x liquid flow sensor is the result of a continuous and tireless strive for innovation. This sensor is based on Sensirion’s CMOSens® Technology and optimises costs by simplifying the design without sacrificing performance or having to forgo any user-friendly fluidic, electrical and mechanical connections. The sensor allows for the bidirectional measurement of flow rates up to 40 ml/min for both water and hydrocarbon-based fluids. In combination with its excellent signal-to-noise ratio and unprecedented turndown ratio of 200:1, it allows real-time monitoring of any fluidic system, which improves process control and enables advanced failure detection. The straight, unobstructed flow channel has no moving parts and is made from inert wetted materials providing outstanding chemical resistance and excellent media compatibility.
The SLF3x provides an unparalleled level of fluid control, system reliability, performance and end-user satisfaction for a range of applications in the fields of diagnostics, analytical instruments and life sciences. The ultra-compact form factor and cost-effective design pave the way for system designs featuring one or more sensors that were previously unfeasible.
To see the new liquid flow sensor in action, be sure to visit Sensirion at the trade fairs Sensor+Test 2019 from June 25 to 27 (Booth No. 316, Hall 1) or Sensors Expo 2019 from June 26 to 27 (Booth No. 324, Hall M6).
