The Series V6 Flotect® Flow Switches is surprisingly compact, and specifically engineered to monitor liquid, gas, or air flows. Time tested in thousands of pipeline installations and processing plants around the world, this Series is Weatherproof, designed to meet NEMA 4 and Explosion-proof (listing included in specifications). Tees are available for installation in pipelines from 1/2 in - 2 in (12.70 mm - 50.80 mm). With bushings added the unit is easily adapted to 1/4 in and 3/8 in (6.35 mm and 9.53 mm) piping.

• Superior performance with unique magnetically-actuated switch
• Increased product life due to free-swinging vane, which attracts a magnet within the solid metal switch body and actuates a snap switch by means of a simple lever arm with no bellows, springs, or seals to fail
• Meets application requirements with durable leak-proof body machined from bar stock
• Save time and money on maintenance with electrical assembly that can be easily replaced without removing the unit from installation so that the process does not have to be shut down
• Choice of models in a tee with calibrated vane or field adjustable trimmable vane
• Quick installation with fitting that installs directly and easily into pipeline with a threadolet, tee, or flange (see application drawings)
• Meets the most demanding applications with high pressure rating of 1000 psig (69 bar) for the brass body and 2000 psig (138 bar) for the SS body
• Solves customer level applications needs with low flow model with field adjustable set point
