Flow Sensor Accessory

Why do you need a Flow Switch?

  • Is your recirculation pump working?
  • Is your recirculation system at the correct flow rate?
  • Is your chemical pump injecting into a stopped system?
  • Is your filter clogged?

How Does it work?
Optional Flow Switch / Sensor is designed to detect Flow / No Flow.
A rare earth magnet is located within the red PVDF float of the new F-300 flowmeters. When the magnet passes through the Alarm Trigger Zone (Hysteresis) of the Sensor Accessory, the built-in contact closure switch sends a signal to external devices.
Note: Two alarms can be placed onto one meter to obtain both ‘Flow Switch’ and ‘Flow Sensor’ capabilities.
