Infinite Volume Controller

Product Code : GDSIVC

The GDS Infinite Volume Controller (IVC) is designed to remove constraints of volume capacity such that a test can continuously flow fluid under pressure control or volume control.

When using a single pressure/volume controller, once the volumetric capacity of the barrel has been reached (either 100% full or 100% empty), the user is required to manually fill or empty the controller accordingly.  By connecting two GDS pressure/volume controllers in parallel, the IVC system automatically switches between them when they run out of volume thus providing a seamless supply of pressure with unlimited volume capacity.  The IVC can be used with any two pressure controllers from the GDS range, i.e. advanced, standard or enterprise.

Key features Benefits to the user
The GDSIVC system automatically switches between controllers when they run out of volume: Infinite Volume!
Controller flexibility: Can be used with all types of GDS controller (ELDPC, STDDPC or ADVDPC).
Secondary controller follows primary:
The second controller will match the output pressure of the primary controller, this feature allows for minimum time switching. Empty controllers are automatically refilled from a reservoir (not supplied).
Continuous volume flow: Allows long term (laminar flow) permeability tests to be carried out.
Accuracy of Pressure Measurement
