SIGMA's Flow Switch is an extension of the level switches. There are two types of flow switches : one for low flow / line size up to 50 mm line size (Model FS 1000) and another from 25 mm onwards up to 800 mm or above (Model FS 1010).
Operating Principle :
Model FS 1000 is a valve type Flow Switch wherein an increase in flow through the body raises the valve disc depending upon the flow. This in turn raises the magnetic sleeve moving inside a non-magnetic enclosure. The movement of the sleeve attracts the magnet located outside the tube which in turn actuates a micro switch. Decrease in flow reverses the action.
Model FS 1010 is a target type which moves from a vertical position to a near horizontal position as the flow increases. This change in position moves a magnetic sleeve in a non-magnetic enclosure. The movement of the magnetic sleeve attracts a magnet which in turn actuates a micro switch. Decrease in flow brings the target back to the vertical position.
