Flow switch

  • 07-Nov-2010 01:07 EST


FS-480 Series flow switches from Gems Sensors & Controls feature port sizes up to 3/4 in (19 mm) and are suitable for monitoring processes that push excessive fluid through their systems and require low pressure drop. The inline flow switch will accommodate pressures to 1000 psi (69 bar) and offers set points of 0.5 to 3.0 gal/min (1.9 to 11.4 L/min). Designed to accommodate larger wafers and crossover equipment, the FS-480 switch's glass-reinforced piston and forged 316 stainless steel body make it rugged enough for lubrication and cooling systems. The inline design is tolerant of particulate and is less susceptible to sticking. FS-480 flow switches can be mounted in any attitude with 1/2-in (12.7-mm) NPT and tube end compression fitting connection ports. Set point accuracy is ±20% with an operating temperature range of -20 to +250°F (-29 to +121°C).

Thermal imaging data obtained from a FLIR high-performance camera shows that the expected turbine output temperature is approximately 285°C when the helicopter is in forward flight. However, during hover operations a steady state temperature of about 343°C will be reached.
