Flow Switch Sensors with an electrical contact output at a specific flow rate have different types of switches, which are paddle, thermal, piezo, and shuttle/piston.
- Paddle flow switches or vane sensors with an electrical contact output are at a specific flow rate. Dwyer flow switches are economical and reliable. Applications include proof of boiler flow, air conditioning, controlling of dampers according to flow, and protecting pumps, motors and other equipment against low or no flow.
- Shuttle / Piston
- Shuttle or piston flow switches are sensors with an electrical contact output at a specific flow rate. Models are used with oil, air, water and gases. Applications include oil flow control, low flow detection in cooling lines, and high pressure lubrication systems. Rugged construction and excellent chemical compatibility simplify flow/no flow detection.
- Thermal flow switches are sensors with an electrical contact output at a specific flow rate. Dwyer models provide a complete system for leak detection and feature a selectable NO or NC operation. Applications include chillers, hot water heaters, and liquid transfer systems.
- Piezo flow switches are sensors with an electrical contact output at a specific flow rate. The Piezo bulk flow monitor provides effective monitoring for most flow/no flow conditions in pipes. Applications include oil spray systems, rotary drums, distributors, slurry systems, water systems, and food processing. Dwyer's piezo flow switch offers many unique advance features that exceed the industry standards.
