MODEL F10 VANE-ACTUATED MECHANICAL FLOW SWITCH


Magnetrol® flow switches are highly reliable flow control solutions utilized to sense the presence or absence of flow in horizontal pipelines. Model F10 switches are vane actuated for use on gas or liquid flow applications in 2 inch or larger line sizes.

Operating Principle


Force of liquid or gas flow against a vertical flow vane mounted in a line causes the vane to pivot to a horizontal position, moving an attraction sleeve into the field of a switch magnet. This pulls the magnet toward the sleeve and actuates the switch.

Applications


- Pump staging or failure
- Pipeline flow detection
- Valve failure
- Loss of pipeline flow
- Pipe blockage/rupture
- Pump inlet flow protection
- Check valve blockage/leakage
- Alarm on eyewash or shower safety station
