  • How Do Mass Air Flow Sensors Work?

  • This is a guest blog post reproduced with permission from ES Systems, a specialist in high quality pressure sensors for a variety of applications.

  • Servoflo is pleased to announce updated data sheets for the ME78X and ME79X ceramic pressure sensors from Metallux. These state-of-the-art ceramic pressure sensors have excellent accuracy and versatility for those users designing a pressure transducer orembedding a sensor in a pump, valve or other part of a pressure control system. A notable change is new designs for both the ME78X and ME79X will use an SSOP14 package rather than the previous DFN package.

  • Users of pressure sensors enjoy a broad selection of models and manufacturers from which to choose. While detailed specifications of individual models are easy to come by, it often helps to understand more about the overall supplier. The following blog post compares board-level pressure sensors from Servoflo and other providers of pressure sensors.

  • Companies across a range of different industries use mass flow sensing technologies to meet specific application requirements in a variety of applications. Here, the team at Servoflo provides a few examples of the advantages of mass flow sensors in machines and mechanisms being designed today.

  • In the medical industry, board level pressure sensors are commonly used in patient monitoring equipment. When used in treatment equipment, such as drug delivery systems or respiratory devices, they can act as monitors that trigger upon reaching a preset threshold and tell the control units to continue, change, or cease treatment.

  • Moisture, whether in liquid or gaseous form, is one of several process variables that industry professionals must measure, monitor, and control. In industrial applications, moisture levels—i.e., humidity—can significantly impact the lifespan of the process equipment, the quality of the end product, and the overall performance of the process operation. Mitigating these potential consequences of moisture in industrial processes necessitates understanding its fundamentals.

  • Ceramic pressure sensors are utilized in a variety of ways across numerous industries – but not all sensors are created equal. While all serve the function of measuring the pressure of liquids and gases, their applications range as far as measuring oil levels in the automotive industry to supporting life-saving medical devices.

  • Humidity sensors are an important piece of equipment in the medical, automotive, HVAC, and food production industries, among others. Any industrial facility that requires a controlled atmosphere requires a properly functioning humidity sensor. Whether your requirements for maintaining or reducing humidity levels are for safety, function, environmental control, or comfort, it's important that you choose the most appropriate sensor for the job.

  • Servoflo distributes a variety of capacitive and resistive humidity sensors for medical, HVAC, instrumentation, critical containment and other applications.  Some situations need precise and highly accuracy relative humidity (rH) measurement to maintain narrow, specific environmental conditions while others have a broad temperature range with wider tolerance ranges for rH measurement. This blog post explains the differences between capacitive and resistive relative humidity sensors and why to choose one type over the other.
