Omron's flow sensor is designed to keep contaminants away from a MEMS chip.

Manufactured by Omron Electronic Components (Schaumburg, IL), the D6F-P0010A flow sensor features a dust segregation system designed to keep particulates away from a highly sensitive MEMS flow chip integrated into the product. The bidirectional dust segregation system consists of dual centrifugal chambers positioned in the flow path, through which particulates follow the outer path. By keeping the sensor clean, the segregation system eliminates the need for some external components, such as filters, thereby potentially reducing costs and real estate.
