New and updated flow sensors for biotech applications

| By Gerald Ondrey

Last month at Interphex, this company introduced the BioProTT FlowSU system and updated SumoFlo CPFM-8103 single-use Coriolis mass flowmeter technologies (photo). The BioProTT FlowSU System is a next-generation flow-measurement system that has been designed for single-use biopharma applications. The FlowSU System revolve around a disposable sensor that eliminates the need for calibration and can be easily integrated into most standard manifolds while performing flow-measurement and air-in-line detection tasks simultaneously. The sensor’s straight-line flow path also produces product transfer with less shear stress to better protect sensitive fluids from damage. The SumoFlo CPFM-8103 is said to be the world’s only gamma-sterilizable Coriolis mass flowmeter, and has a reading accuracy of ±1% in flowrates from 0.05 to 100 kg/min. — PSG Biotech, Oakbrook Terrace, Ill.
