Image Number 3 for United States Patent #7007707.
A system for dividing a single mass flow, including an inlet adapted to receive the single mass flow and at least two flow lines connected to the inlet. Each flow line includes a flow meter and a valve. The system also includes a controller programmed to receive a desired ratio of flow through a user interface, receive signals indicative of measured flow from the flow meters, calculate an actual ratio of flow through the flow lines based upon the measured flows, and compare the actual ratio to the desired ratio. The controller is also programmed to calculate the desired flow through at least one of the flow lines if the actual ratio is unequal to the desired ratio, and provide a signal indicative of the desired flow to at least one of the valves.
