  • Designed for a broad spectrum of industrial fluids – pure water, tap water, sea water, cooling tower water, glycol solutions, mild acids and bases.
  • Max flow may be five times normal flow.
  • Positive stop essentially eliminates fatigue effects of turbulence, vibration and flow surge on flow detecting element.
  • Very low pressure drop – typically less than 1.0 psig at normal flow rate.
  • Line pressure to 250 psig at 25°C.
  • Temperature to 180°F continuous.
  • Switches 5 VDC to 240 VAC.
  • Power the driving coil of small ice cube relays as well as some 30 amp power relays.
  • Provides dry circuit interface with computer and PLC modules.
  • Small size and low profile provides easy mounting in crowded installations.

NOTE: Model Q-12NT employs magnetic coupling between the target blade and switch body. Magnetic particles can accumulate on and around magnetic housing which may affect proper operation. Please conduct appropriate fluid magnetic particle evaluation and operational tests prior to and during installation and use.
