Active Control

Active Control for Life Science Applications

Innovation to help MFC and EPC customers overcome a wider flow controlling range, modularity, and size issues – via a single connected device.

A critical success factor for OEMs delivering instruments for life science applications within medical, analytical, diagnostic and biotechnology sectors, is the ability of system components to deliver exact control and precision-based performance.

Sizing challenges and cost pressures make it difficult for OEMs to find an adequate standard gas flow or pressure control solution. Additionally, the inability to handle a wide flow range and different media from a single device has forced many companies to specify the use of several mass flow and electronic pressure controller solutions within a single system. Not only does this extend the instrumentation footprint (and with it cost), but it also adds increased complexity to an already challenging scenario.





Within this, the roles of mass flow controllers (MFC) and electronic pressure controllers (EPC) are vital to ensure the measurement and control of essential gases used across many life science applications are highly accurate, precise and reliable.

Breakthrough Engineering Solution – An Industry First


Delivering Breakthrough Engineering in action, the innovative Active Control MFC and EPC solutions from Norgren are set to hit the market.

Transforming how OEMs tackle the defined operational and cost challenges, the new solutions are based upon the principles of high accuracy, precision and an integrated, single solution delivery. Highly accurate and with the ability for system integration using a manifold-mounted capability, the new solutions will provide an automated single device which offers a dynamic range that can adjust and modulate a wide spectrum of flow rates and pressure requirements for multiple gases.
