A stand-alone/modular dynamic gas mixing platform with integrated 6 button TFT color interface.
Highly flexible and expandable system with up to 10 gas inputs using any combination of mass flow controllers ranging from 100 SCCM to 5000 SLPM full-scale, per channel.
This stand-alone variant of the MXM turn-key model includes the essential hardware for gas mixing, but must be plumbed by the end user to suit the installation.
Custom engineered for every application, the MXM family of gas mixers are the only hardware-based blenders of their kind to offer both flow and pressure delivery modes. Accurate and dynamic gas mixing is accomplished via specially tuned Alicat Scientific mass flow controllers commanded by our proprietary MixModule device. The MXM-SA’s automation and data logging capabilities can be greatly augmented with the optional Fusion Flow MXM software, although the MXM-SA is designed operate fully autonomously without connection to a PC. This makes the MXM-SA a great choice for single-purpose, continuous use gas blending applications.

A highly flexible platform allows for 2 to 10 gas inputs with any combination of flow rates ranging from 100 SCCM to 5000 SLPM full-scale.
The MXM-SA is a semi-DIY dynamic gas mixing system with integrated 6 button TFT color interface. Through this keypad, the entire gas mixing process can be configured, started, and stopped. The MXM is an ideal choice for single purpose applications that don’t require frequent changing of the gas mix ratios, or where control through the optional MXM software is not practical for the installation.
Fusion Flow’s stand-alone solutions employ a table-top or wall mountable gas mixing multiplexer board called the GMB. Every MXM-SA system comes with this interface board fully populated, to allow inter-connection of the MixModule and subordinate MFCs, fused power supply terminal, various automation connections, and the RS232 COM port connection for computer/software use.
Because the MXM-SA is intended to be plumbed by the end-user, the form factor of the system is dictated by the chosen MFCs as they are laid out/mounted by the customer. This allows for highly custom integration, where a turn-key package may not be suitable. Although the physical plumbing connections are not included with the system, all electrical, power supply, and communication cables are provided with each MXM-SA gas mixer.
