Dwyer Series P5 PVC Shuttle Flow Switch features corrosion-resistant, durable PVC housing for visual confirmation in flow/no flow applications. The switches have preset actuation points from 0.5 to 2.0 GPM for actuation on increasing flow.
Switching is SPST normally open at no flow. Choose from 1/2″ NPT or 3/4″ IPS (for 0.5 GPM) or 1″ IPS (for 2.0 GPM) inlet and outlet ports. The shuttle design has only one moving part for long life and minimum maintenance.
Shuttle or piston flow switches are sensors with an electrical contact output at a specific flow rate. Models are used with oil, air, water, and gases. Applications include oil flow control, low flow detection in cooling lines, and high-pressure lubrication systems. Rugged construction and excellent chemical compatibility simplify flow/no flow detection.
Remove the one-piece bonnet and shuttle assembly to quickly clean the unit without disturbing the housing or piping. Rugged construction and excellent chemical compatibility simplify flow/no flow detection.
