Research and Development

Research and development is about working on advanced and trendsetting technologies and knowledge transfer. Universities and laboratories are the heart of our economic success, which work in advance and in co-operation with the manufacturing companies. Constantly changing projects require a high degree of application knowledge and flexible equipment.

Many labs operate their own calibrators for checking of measuring devices and other process components.

TrigasDM is a longtime partner to universities and research institutes, as well as in-house laboratories of many industrial concerns.  By equipping their calibrators with high-accuracy master meters, providing advice on their selection and offering our service for their regular calibration in the TrigasFI DAkkS-certified laboratories, we help ensure that these calibrators are up to date.

TrigasDM offers flow calibrator upgrade and automation service on existing calibrators, as well as design and construction of new flow calibrators for liquids or gases, according to specific customer requirements.

Additionally, TrigasDM equips Universities and laboratories with highly flexible liquid flow sensors, adapted as needed for different viscosities, high pressures and wide ranges of temperature.

But who knows what the future holds and which project will come up next? If you cannot find a solution in our standard program, you will find in TrigasDM a flexible partner who works with you to develop solutions, customize sensors and optimize your process. This is our promise to you!

PCD-15PSIG-D_1080

You want to regulate gas supply, mix gases, measure consumption with high accuracy? – Our Alicat mass flow meters and controllers are the ideal solution, without limiting you to any one specific gas.

Once calibrated, the calibration curves of up to 130 gases and gas mixtures are stored in in memory (not an empirical correction factor, but exact calibration data!). You can simply select according to the needs of your application!

The fast response times (50 ms or better) of Alicat Controllers ensure precise process control of gas and volumetric flow, as well as of pressure. All measured parameters can be also monitored on the display, including that temperature of the flowing gas. These multifaceted instruments offer versatility, precision and fast response, making them the ideal solution for just about any project.

We recommend the following products:

DMTurbineAN

High Precision DM series turbine flow meter with versatile  threaded connection; also for bidirectional measurements, recommended for measuring demineralized water, solvents, alcohols or cleaning liquids in quantities from 42 lpm up to 1300 lpm

With our standard pickoffs you already get the benefit of a no-drag, stable RF carrier based sensor, working without magnetic fields which retard the turbine rotor motion or attracting metal particles which affect the dimension of the flow path and the velocity profile of the flowing liquid. High temperature versions, versions with integrated temperature sensor or with additional signal amplifiers optionally available; recommended for test benches

TriLIN linearization electronics store the special UVC data that combine several calibrations of the turbine flowmeter for different viscosities with optional temperature compensation which makes accurate flow measurement possible over the defined temperature and viscosity range.

Configurable as 2-channel version, for differential flow measurements (A-B consumption), bi-directional measurements, etc.;

The Alicat M Series for accurate gas measurement, whether stationary or battery-powered, not only provides a 5ms response time and accuracy of up to 0.4% of reading + 0,2% of full scale, but also comes with a rugged design that makes is insensitive to vibrations and humidity.

You can choose from up to 130 stored gas calibration curves and also create your own gas mixtures, which are then measured with the same accuracy as the original calibration gas. A single device for a wide variety of applications!

Alicat MC Series, the fastest gas controller, provides with its special valves control times of 50ms and therefore a brilliant stable control. User selectable units and a large display ensure easy operation and convenient reading of all parameters.

The connection to PLC or PC via bus interfaces enables easy integration into existing systems. (also available as MCW in Whisper version)

PCD-15PSIG-D_1080

Alicat PCD series, the gas pressure controller with the integrated quick valves (available with up-, downstream or 2 valves) and the high repeatability of 0,08% of full scale ensures stable process control and is available for different pressure ranges. Selectable units of measure and a large display ensure easy operation and convenient reading of all parameters.

The connection to PLC or PC via bus interfaces enables easy integration into existing systems.
