Flow/level/temperature switch monitors, controls critical fluid levels

April 11, 2006

The FlexSwitch® FLT flow and level switch from Fluid Components Intl. provides monitoring, controlling, and alarming on flow rates or level of critical fluids such as water, air, gases, coolants, and lubricants.

The switch is a dual-function instrument that provides both flow and temperature or level and temperature sensing in a single unit. It is available in both insertion and inline styles for pipe or tube installation. A single switch measures and monitors flow or level and temperature simultaneously.

Typical applications include equipment involved in metals forming or fabricating, cooling, curing, molding, stamping, and cutting. Switch point accuracy of 2 percent and measuring repeatability of 0.5 percent of reading ensure accurate, reliable operation, the company says. The standard-configuration switch withstands operating temperatures up to 350 degrees F and optional versions handle up to 850 degrees F.
