Industry News: SFC6000 mass flow controllers

The device promises great performance, low price, and short lead time

09 Mar 2023

The SFC6000 is Sensirion’s next generation mass flow controller, impressing with an unbeatable price performance ratio and a very attractive delivery time of eight weeks. While the industry is currently struggling with delivery times of 30 to 53 weeks, SFC6000 samples are available within two to four weeks. In addition, selected SFC6000 configurations are available in catalog distribution, meaning you can order them for initial testing and evaluation today and have the product in your mailbox tomorrow.

The SFC6000 is very small and light and therefore allows the customer to optimize their devices in terms of size and weight. This is a decisive advantage, especially for portable devices. Furthermore, it offers great performance in terms of repeatability, accuracy, control range, and speed. The SFC600 is highly integrated and has a very robust supply chain due to the very low number of electronic components used.

It is most suitable for applications in semiconductors (front opening unified pods (FOUP), glass coating, and treatment), analytical instruments (gas chromatography, bioreactors), industrial automation as well as medical equipment (anesthesia, ventilation, heart-lung machines, N2O therapy).

Based on the thermal-mass measurement principle and using our proven CMOSens® MEMS technology, Sensirion builds radical mass flow controllers with best-in-class performance and speed, which, unlike most other devices on the market, do not drift and do not require in-service re-calibration.

If you are looking for a mass flow meter, the SFM6000 is a valve-less sister variant of the SFC6000, offering the same performance at an even lower price.

To learn more about the SFC6000 mass flow controller, visit Sensirion at booth #739 at Pittcon in Philadelphia, PA, USA from March 20 to 22, 2023, or check out the company's website.
