There are many different kinds of flow switches/monitors on the market, and not all are made equal, with devices for industry needing to be especially robust and reliable for mine site applications.

Premium flow switch applications

The FS10i is a universal flow switch and flow monitor designed for simple insertion into 13mm or larger diameter pipes and square ducts. The unit is suitable for either liquid or air/gas applications. Fast responding, the unit is highly repeatable to both increasing and decreasing flow rate changes.

The standard 1A relay trip point is easily set in the field for low or high trip points and the trip and reset points can be further tuned with hysteresis and time delay adjustments. Also included standard is a 4-20mA trending output of the flow rate for connection to ancillary controls or alarm systems.

The FS10i includes a 10-LED array which provides both an indication that the trip point has been exceeded – in which the LED flashes on and off – and of relative flow rate (ten per cent increments) across the flow range.

The FS10i provides best-in-class features for installation in rugged duty, and long-life in industrial plants, processes and large buildings. Its flow sensor’s thermowells are constructed of highly corrosion resistant Hastelloy C-22, meaning it will operate in fluid temperatures up to 121 degrees Celsius.

The FS10i boasts an IP protection rating to IP67, optional global agency approvals for installation in Division 2/Zone 2 locations and it is the only unit in its price range to carry a SIL 2 compliance rating.

The fact that it has no moving parts that can clog and requires no routine maintenance offers users time and cost savings over any mechanical-technology based flow switch on the market.
