Pump Protection Flow Switch

September 13, 2011

The FlexSwitch® FLT93 Pump Protection Flow Switch from Fluid Components International reduces reduces pump repair and extends pumplife by detecting dry running conditions caused by irregular liquid flows or slurries. The Flow/Level/Temperature (FLT) Pump Protection Flow Switch reliably monitors the flow and temperature of liquids, gases, slurries, syrups, lubricants, coolants and more. It is ideal for pump wet/dry detection, where sudden, unexpected reductions in media flow rates may leave pumps vulnerable to over-heating conditions that can result in bearing or seal damage that require major repairs or shorten their useful life. The FLT Flow Switch, with its no moving parts design, offers a highly robust scheme for pump protection with its dual alarm capability.
