The newest flow switches from Balluff alert users to potential failures due to a reduction in necessary fluid flow.
The recently released BFF series of flow sensors, which are available in both thread-in and inline versions, provide a switching output that is activated when the flow falls below a user-defined rate. This makes it possible to notify users of system problems such as the failure of a pumping system, a clogged filter or leaks before they cause critical issues or system shutdowns.
The completely solid-state calorimetric sensing technology measures temperature differential on each side of the sensing probe and has no moving parts. So, unlike mechanical flow switches, they are resistant failures caused by dirt or foreign object buildup. The BFF series of flow sensors complement Balluff’s existing line of temperature sensors and are an addition to our line of process-oriented sensor product.
