The Brooks® GF40 (elastomer seal) thermal mass flow controller (MFC) and thermal mass flow meter (MFM) achieves unprecedented performance, reliability, and flexibility in many gas flow measurement and control applications.

At the heart of the GF40 is Brooks’ patented 4th generation MultiFloTM capable device. MultiFlo overcomes a long-standing limitation of many thermal MFCs – when changing gas types, a simple correction factor, such as the ratio of heat capacities between the calibration gas and new gas, cannot account for accuracy-robbing viscosity and density differences. The Brooks MultiFlo database is built on thousands of native gas runs to establish correction functions that account for both thermal and physical differences among gases making the GF40 Series among the most accurate and flexible MFCs/MFMs available today. The Brooks GF40 Series is the perfect choice for customers who use thermal mass flow controllers or thermal mass flow meters on a variety of gases, who need to change gas type frequently, or who need to re-range while preserving gas measurement and control accuracy.
