V8 Flotect® Flow Switch Protects Equipment: Operation is simple and dependable.
In most applications, the switch is normally off while there is sufficient flow of liquid or air. When flow stops, the vane spring moves the vane, actuating a single pole double throw switch rated 5A @ 120/250 VAC to start or stop motor, pump, engine, etc. Operate a damper or valve; shut down a burner or actuate an alarm or signal, protecting unattended equipment from damage or loss of production.
The V8 Flotect® Flow Switch has a leak proof body and vane constructed of tough durable polyphenylene sulfide which has excellent chemical resistance. The full size trimmable vane is provided with molded-in graduations allowing for installation in a 1 inch through 6 inch pipe. Operating pressures are up to 150 psig (10 bar) and temperatures to 212°F (100°C). The V8 flow switch can be used in various chemical processes, industrial systems and similar applications where process conditions are compatible with polyphenylene sulfide, ceramic 8 and 316SS. The V8 Flotect® flow switch is UL recognized as an industrial motor controller per UL standard 508, suitable for mounting in a protected environment.
Applications are chemical processing, air conditioning, refrigeration, heating systems, cooling lines, machinery, liquid transfer systems, water treatment, food processing, and machine tools. Also, other applications compatible with the materials of construction.
