Kobold All Metal Flow Switches DSS
All Metal Flow Switches DSS

The flow switches model DSS operate on the suspended float principle, however not with a tapering measuring tube, but with a cylindrical float and a slotted conical nozzle. This technology allows a very much more compact construction and offers considerable price advantages.
