With the largest installed base of thermal mass flow controllers and meters around the world, Brooks offers products with faster response, better accuracy and improved control over analog devices.   Customers tight on resources and time often seek engineering partners to design the complete system for a new process or to keep their existing process up-to-date and running smoothly.   Brooks’ solutions-based approach to solving customer applications is ideal. 

The Smart Link Advantage (SLA) Series is Brooks’ premier smart digital thermal mass flow series. SLA mass flow controllers and mass flow meters link to advanced service tools and offer the advantage of digital protocols. The SLA Series provides many advanced features such as enhanced temperature stability, zero-drift diagnostics, coplanar valve for improved turndown, and more.
