Engineers responsible for optimising the up time of process flow networks in demanding industries will find the FLT93 Series Flow Switchprovides a reliable early warning alert system.

Warnings are provided to prevent dry running conditions, cavitation and other pump issues that can lead to emergency shutdowns, service interruptions and unplanned costly maintenance.

The switch from Fluid Components International (FCI) is ideal for the long list of industries that depend on pumps to move process fluids and keep cooling systems up and running. 

Pumps are expensive to operate and costly to maintain--especially when dry running conditions suddenly occur due to system variable demand, leaks, clogs or other problems that could affect a pump’s seals or bearings. 

The resulting damage can require expensive, time-consuming repairs, overhauls or replacement at an even higher cost.

The dual alarm switch reliably monitors the flow and temperature of liquids, gases, slurries and more. 

\It is ideal for pump wet/dry detection, where sudden, unexpected reductions in media flow rates can leave pumps vulnerable to over-heating conditions that shutdown process lines and require troubleshooting, fixes and more. 

This SIL2 rated instrument is designed for heavy-duty, potentially hazardous process industry environments and comes with a comprehensive list of global safety approvals.

The FLT93 Switch, with its no moving parts design, offers a highly robust scheme for pump protection with its dual alarm capability. With Alarm 1, the switch will detect a low flow situation anywhere between 0.003 to 0.9 meters per second MPS.

If an Alarm 2 occurs because the feed line to the pump is running dry, this condition would be an emergency signal to shut down the pump immediately because the bearings now see gas instead of a liquid as a heat transfer media.
