The Single Flow Meter (SFM 3001) is calibrated for 1.0 to 25 liter
per minute (LPM) (or 0.1-10 LPM) and is used for controlling flow
rate of pre-mixed gases. The Dual Flow Meter (DFM 3002) is often
used in experiments requiring fine tuning of O2
and or CO2 concentrations to determine
the effect of different gas mixtures. This system has two flow meters,
one calibrated for 0.1 to 1.0 LPM and the other for 0.1 to 10 LPM.
The Dual Flow Meter has two tubing ports allowing for the mixing
of gases from two separate tanks.
When the gas inlet port of the flow meter for
0.1-1.5 LPM flow meter is closed, the Dual Flow Meter can be used
for pre-mixed gases in the same manner as the Single Flow Meter.
Flow meters are accurately calibrated and have
the same precision as the flow meter used for the full size continuous
flow CO2 incubator chamber. They are set
on a steel stand at an angle for ease of viewing and adjusting flow
Use of Flow Meters with the Hot Box System.
In order to achieve maximum containment of [35S]-radioactive
gases generated during protein labeling experiments, a Flow Meter
must be used in conjunction with the Hot Box System and Hot Filters.
