FCI offers circulate change to guard from dry running

Fluid Components International’s dual alarm FLT93 Series move switch provides an early warning alert to the potential of dry operating situations, cavitation and different pump issues that may lead to emergency shutdowns and expensive maintenance.

FCI’s FLT93 Series flow change reliably screens the move and temperature of liquids, gases, and slurries. It is designed for pump wet/dry detection, the place sudden, sudden reductions in media circulate rates can depart pumps susceptible to over-heating situations that shutdown process traces and require troubleshooting and fixing. The SIL2 rated instrument is meant for heavy-duty, potentially hazardous course of business environments and comes with a complete list of global safety approvals.
It has a no shifting elements design and provides a robust scheme for pump protection with its dual alarm capability. With Alarm 1, the switch detects a low flow situation wherever between zero.01 and 3 ft per second FPS (0.003–0.9 m per second MPS). digital pressure gauge is a pre-warning sign for the control system or operator who can then determine to maintain the pump operating or to shut it down.
If an Alarm 2 happens as a outcome of the feed line to the pump is operating dry, this is ready to be an emergency signal to shut down the pump immediately as a result of the bearings now see gasoline as a substitute of a liquid as a heat switch media. In such situations, the temperature of the bearings could rise very quick. Using a flow change prevents everlasting damage to the pump’s bearings.
