Balluff BFF sensor series warns users of reduction in fluid flow
October 5, 2018 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
October 5, 2018 – The newest flow switches from Balluff‘s line of process-oriented sensor products alert users to potential failures due to a reduction in necessary fluid flow.
The BFF series of flow sensors, which are available in both thread-in and inline versions, provide a switching output that is activated when the flow falls below a user-defined rate. This makes it possible to notify users of system problems such as the failure of a pumping system, a clogged filter or leaks before they cause critical issues or system shutdowns.
The completely solid-state calorimetric sensing technology measures temperature differential on each side of the sensing probe and has no moving parts. So, unlike mechanical flow switches, they are resistant to failures caused by dirt or foreign object buildup. The BFF series offer continual flow monitoring with a visual display of flow with integrated LEDs.
