Fluid Components International’s twin alarm FLT93 Series move switch offers an early warning alert to the potential of dry operating circumstances, cavitation and other pump issues that may result in emergency shutdowns and dear upkeep.

FCI’s FLT93 Series circulate switch reliably monitors the move and temperature of liquids, gases, and slurries. It is designed for pump wet/dry detection, where sudden, unexpected reductions in media flow charges can depart pumps vulnerable to over-heating conditions that shutdown course of lines and require troubleshooting and fixing. The SIL2 rated instrument is meant for heavy-duty, probably hazardous process industry environments and comes with a comprehensive list of worldwide safety approvals.
It has a no transferring components design and offers a robust scheme for pump safety with its dual alarm functionality. With Alarm 1, the switch detects a low flow scenario wherever between 0.01 and three ft per second FPS (0.003–0.9 m per second MPS). This low flow alarm is a pre-warning signal for the control system or operator who can then decide to maintain the pump working or to shut it down.
If an Alarm 2 occurs as a end result of the feed line to the pump is working dry, this may be an emergency sign to close down the pump immediately because the bearings now see gas instead of a liquid as a heat transfer media. In such situations, the temperature of the bearings might rise very fast. Using เกจวัดแรงดัน300psi prevents permanent injury to the pump’s bearings.
