Compact liquid flow meter for industrial applications with flows below 1ml/sec

March 20, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
Sensirion (Switzerland) is expanding its range of liquid flow sensors for measuring low flow rates; the SLS-1500 liquid flow meter delivers fast and precise measurements for flow rates of 0 to 40 ml/min.

The compact liquid flow meter comes in a robust housing and offers a versatile sensor solution for applications in demanding industrial environments and laboratory settings. Sensirion’s modular approach of combining the sensor and interface cable ensures an optimum match with rapid results and simplifies integration of a flow sensor.

With a typical response time of 20 msec, the SLS-1500 is able to reliably monitor highly dynamic dispensing processes. The flow channel inside the sensor is completely straight and open and has no moving parts. Inert wetted materials provide chemical resistance and biocompatibility. The SLS-1500 is compatible with SCC1 interface cables, thereby offering USB, RS485 and analogue voltage output connections.
