Piston Type Viscosity Compensating Switches

General Operating Principles  


When temperatures of viscous fluids change, so do their flow properties. With viscosity lowered by increasing temperature, a greater flow is generally required to create actuation pressure differential. A unique patented piston with Gems™ FS-930 Series switches accommodates these changes in fluid viscosity while maintaining accurate switch actuation. Units can detect flow rates with 20% accuracy for fluid viscosities between 40 to 1000 SSU.
