Who we are
Leader in low flow fluidics handling technology
We develop and manufacture smart, sustainable and customer-specific low flow fluidics handling solutions from our vibrant base in Ruurlo in the Achterhoek region of the Netherlands. Our precise and reliable mass flow meters and controllers for liquids and gases find their way in laboratories, test-benches, machinery and a wide variety of industries.
Bronkhorst is a truly worldwide organisation with subsidiary offices for sales and support in Great Britain, France, Northern Germany, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Japan, China, Taiwan, South Korea and the USA. In addition we have built up an extensive complementary network of distributors and service stations across Europe and the rest of the world, whereby local expertise and service is offered.
Bronkhorst instruments are used for numerous applications in many different markets. In this section you will find an overview of the main markets for our equipment, illustrated with some typical examples of applications.
Customer satisfaction, innovation and quality of product and service have been the cornerstones of Bronkhorst's success. Based on our experience, innovation and sense of responsibility, a relationship with Bronkhorst assures Performance for Life.
With our extensive product range of gas and liquid flow meters and controllers we can offer both standard as well as customised solutions for various applications. Our measurement and control instruments are used worldwide in the healthcare industry, chemical laboratories, solar panel productions and many other fields of application.
The measuring range for our thermal mass flow meters/controllers can be selected between 0-0,7 mln/min and 0-11000 m3n/h for gases and 0-100 mg/h up to 0-20 kg/h for liquids. Bronkhorst’s Coriolis Mass Flow Meters and Controllers for gases and liquids have a measurement capability between 0-5 g/h and 0-600 kg/h. Furthermore we offer pressure transducers and controllerswith a minimum range of 0-100 mbar and a maximum range of 0-400 bar. The most recent development is a series of ultrasonic liquid flow meters for flow rates from 4-200 ml/min up to approx. 1500 ml/min.
Knowledge & Experience
We focus not only on low-flow technology, but also on continuity and sharing our valuable in-house expertise because we firmly believe that by sharing that knowledge we can provide even better solutions to more complex issues, by working closely together with our partners and customers.
In addition to our own Research & Development and Engineering department, we have formed alliances with universities, research laboratories and other partners around the world. Not only our products have to be of the highest quality, but our service as well. And that is why we are 24/7 available for our customers to solve their complex issues with our experience, expertise and our ever-growing knowledge in the field of low flow fluidics handling technology.
It goes without saying that we are personally responsible for delivering the highest quality regarding our products and service. Customer satisfaction, innovation and quality of product and service have been the cornerstones of our success. In 1987 we obtained the Koning Willem I Award for a young successful enterprise.
In 1992 we were certified to ISO 9001 with ISO 14001 (International Standard for environmental management) following three years later. Throughout the years our ongoing commitment was rewarded by certification to the most recent Quality Management System, currently ISO 9001:2015. In 2010, our Bronkhorst Calibration Centre was awarded ISO/IEC 17025:2005 by the Dutch Accreditation Council (RvA), guaranteeing the accuracy of every gas flow calibration performed by our calibration laboratory.
