Component Recognized (E85349)

True flow switch performance at a price competitive with pressure switches

  • Specialized cables and connectors available for O.E.M. applications.
  • Available in a clear one piece 3/4 inch barbed tee eliminating leakage and labor associated with glued fittings.
  • Sense low flow independently of pressure or temperature.
  • The Q-12DS bending blade design eliminates all sliding and pivoting friction and sticking problems, providing a trouble-free life measured in years.
  • Positive stop of bending beam eliminates fatigue effects of turbulence, vibration and flow surge.
  • Designed for O.E.M. and Field Service installations.
  • Very small size - Designed for mounting directly into heater housings or equipment packs.
  • Use for direct input to solid state controllers or with a relay motor contactor to directly controlpump motors, heaters, etc.
  • WETTED SURFACES: Noryl (Polyphenylene Oxide), 316 Stainless Steel and epoxy.
  • Very low pressure drop - typically less than 1.0 psi at rated flow.
  • Mount in any position.
  • Turn key product with optional tee fittings and cable/connectors.
  • Factory Direct
  • Made in the USA.
  • Guaranteed
  • Design proven by over 15 years of reliable service in the pool and spa industry.
