Mass Flow Switch for the detection of the mass flow rate of liquids and gases. Self heating sensor design improves repeatability. No separate heater to fail or slow response time.
A: Similar to the way wind chills a wet hiker, material flowing over a thermal (heated) flow switch sensor cools it down, tripping a relay, or switch.
A: The detection range of the switch for flowing water (0.01FPS to 5FPS) and air (0.1FPS to 450FPS). The switch will detect movement in most fluids. Contact the factory for application in other media.
A: Yes. Your thermal switch will inform you of changes in many moving fluids and gasses. Contact the factory for application in other media.
A: As long as the tips are inserted deep enough to be covered by the process fluid it will respond.
A: Yes. The tips should be oriented perpendicular to the flow stream and are clearly marked for easy installation.
A: The microtuf’s response times to different flow set points will vary depending on the physical properties of process material, usually responding from one second to a few seconds.
A: Yes, and it will arrive at your plant with a factory standard calibration.
A: Yes, simple to use instructions for calibration are included with your switch.
A: The electronics are rated to operate reliably from -40°F to +140°F (-40°C to +60°C), and sensor from -100°F to 390°F (-70°C to +200°C).
