The MKS IM250 Multi-gas, Multi-range, IP66-rated, Metal-sealed, Digital Mass Flow Controller for Flow Rates up to 250 slm is designed for use in harsh environments where resistance to liquid or dust ingress are essential.

The IM250 can be ranged from 100 to 250 slm Nitrogen Full Scale flow. This broad range is enabled by the IM250's unique control valve design, which provides rapid setpoint response while maintaining closed conductance leak rates - well below other typical high-flow MFCs.

The IM250 fast settling time (< 2 seconds) and 1% of setpoint accuracy exceeds other typical high flow MFCs. Precise control is maintained down to 2% of the IM250 MFCs configured full scale. IM250 performance, combined with the multi-gas/multi-range capability, minimizes high flow mass flow controller inventories.

Features & Benefits:

  • IP66-rated enclosure protects against ingress of water and dust from harsh environments
  • Fast response to setpoint change reduces flow stabilization time, enhancing process throughput
  • Tightly-controlled flow accuracy improves process matching
  • Reduced inlet pressure (pressure drop) requirement simplifies gas supply regulation from a single source
  • Multi-gas/multi-range capabilities reduces MFC inventory
  • Accurate flow control even when down-ranged, reduces the need for additional low-range MFCs
  • Configuration & diagnostics with an Ethernet interface and web browser - no special software required

Applications:

The IM250 supports a wide variety of applications in harsh environments where resistance to liquid or dust ingress are critical. Applications include Biotech, Pharmaceutical, Food and Beverage where "hosedown" may be required, or industrial glass production, where moisture and dust are present. With its IP66-rated enclosure, the IM250 meets the stringent requirements of these aggressive environments.
