Summary

A versatile, cheap and automated system is designed for the measurement of small gas flows produced in laboratory-scale fermentation processes. An automatic sampling device for programmed times is linked to the flow meter. The displacement of a liquid by the gas being measured is the principle on which both the meter and the sampling device are based. The operation of the system is controlled by a simple electronic circuit.
