Gas mixing, or gas blending, is integral to a wide range of application areas from sensor development and calibration to laser systems. Common needs uniting the underlying process equipment for this massive variety of distinct gas mixing systems include low cost of ownership and operation, high precision, and multi-stream capabilities – or at least the ability to easily upgrade the number of system channels that are required.
These shared requirements should not suggest that process equipment for gas mixing applications is available on a general-use basis. There are important considerations that need to be made when it comes to picking the right equipment for your gas mixing process, even the necessary features and parameters are standardised.
There are three primary pieces of information that underlie the design and optimisation of gas mixing process equipment. Each of these can vary within specific application areas and may even change over time. These fundamental metrics are:
A thorough understanding of these three key parameters will set you in good stead when it comes to choosing your process equipment.
Fusion Flow Technologies was predicated by Alicat Scientific, one of the world leaders in scientific measurement solutions from mass flow controllers to analytical software. At Lab Unlimited, we are a proud supplier of both Alicat instruments and Fusion Flow Technologies process equipment. With the backing of Halma plc, an FTSA 100 group, Fusion Flow Technologies combines unrivalled knowledge of gas mixing challenges with the financial means to deliver truly bespoke solutions. Their premium process equipment can be tailored to your needs and co-created to ease the burden of choice and help clients find a flawless solution.
Once you have provided the necessary metrics, the next decision is which overarching system suits your needs best. There are two gas mixing systems with the same levels of precision and expertise in process gas mixtures: the modular gas mixing system and the turnkey solution.
The modular gas mixing system from Fusion Flow Technologies is designed to give end-users the freedom to determine where components should be placed. This empowers researchers to make their own orientation decisions in putting together completely unique process equipment. The system is delivered as a series of individual components and accessories which leaves the plumbing up to you. This can enable the construction of fully functional gas blending systems with components that are not placed in proximity to one another.

The turnkey gas mixing system was engineered to satisfy the demands of industrial process equipment. It has increasing usability to ensure that regular facility staff can operate the system as easily as experienced technicians. It is now the leading solution for gas mixing systems with plug and play functionality and seamless integration into existing systems. The turnkey gas mixer is sophisticated yet easy to use, meeting the requirements of factory settings with a robust enclosure that can provide exceptional measures of protection against dust, particulates, and adverse processing conditions.
