    Product description

    The mass flow controller (MFC) Type 8712 is suited for regulating the mass flow of gases over a big flow range. The thermal MEMS sensor is located directly in the gas stream and therefore reaches very fast response times. A direct-acting proportional valve from Bürkert guarantees a high sensitivity. The integrated PI controller ensures outstanding control characteristics of the MFC. Type 8712 can optionally be calibrated for two different gases; the user can switch between these two gases. As electrical interfaces both, analog standard signals and fieldbuses are available. The mass flow controller type 8712 fits for various applications, like e.g. burner controls, heat treatment, material coatings, bio reactors, fuel cell technology or test benches. This MFC is especially designed for use in harsh environments due to the high protection class.
