Oxygen Mass Flow Control Valve – 08/10/2020

We are proud to announce a brand-new addition to our MFCV family!

In our existing range there are various sizes such as 30, 500, 1600 and 5000 ltr/min @ 14 bar g. These are commonly used for gases such as CO2, N2, Ar, He, H2 and clean dry air but now we have added O2 to that list!

We have had increasing interest and requests for oxygen versions of our popular MFCV’s. So, in response, we are pleased to announce our new BO396 which is now compatible with oxygen! It provides 1600 ltr/min @ 14 bar g (1100 ltr/min @ 7 bar g) and has a built-in needle valve so you can adjust the flow rate. It is fully pressure mechanical and can be mounted to a panel or supported in pipework.

Our MFCV’s are a mechanical valve that is very good at maintaining the flow through with a constant supply gas pressure but varying downstream pressure. It is suitable for anywhere that you need to maintain that flow, given the downstream pressure is changing, filling a buffer tank for example.

This overcomes the fundamental problem of using a simple orifice flow device. With a simple orifice, the flow of a given gas through it will change as the pressures to and from it change. Or as the differential pressure across it changes.

The BSL Mass Flow Control Valves are part of a great solution to deal with this. As you may know we have an established family range of valves for inert gases and hydrogen.

Examples for applications where controlling flow in this way is very useful are gas generators, tank blanketing, gas mixing and anywhere the downstream pressure fluctuates greatly.

The NEW BO396 designed for oxygen use is available now along with our existing range of valves! They also have an improved warranty of 7 years as these have proven to be reliable and hard-wearing.

If you have an application that needs greater flow control of gases with downstream pressure fluctuation, for more details email us.

BSL operate a quality management system accredited to ISO 9001:2015, for the design, manufacture and refurbishment and supply of industrial gas mixing systems, gas flow control equipment and air separation systems for the beverage, food, manufacturing and associated industries.
