New Website Allows Online Purchase Of Piston Type Flow Switches

November 09, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Hudson, MA November 9, 2007 – Clark Solutions—The manufacturer and distributor of a wide range of pumps, valves, and flow instrumentation has now made available for online purchase flow switches suitable for applications like lubrication systems, medical sterilizers, semiconductor processing equipment and HVAC systems. The CFS line of flow switches is designed for flow rates ranging from 0.1 to 1.5 GPM, 0.15 GPM to 2 GPM, 0.25 GPM to 2 GPM, and 0.5 GPM to 3 GPM. The CFS Series of flow switches utilizes a piston, encapsulating a permanent magnet positioned in the flow path within the unit housing. When displaced by the pressure differential from fluid flow, this piston magnetically actuates a hermetically sealed reed switch within the unit to continue flow.

Included in the products now being offered online are the CFS4, CFS480, CFS380 and CFS380P Series Switches. The CFS4 Piston Type Flow Switch makes flow protection economical for a broad range of industrial applications such as welders, lubrication systems, medical sterilizers, and chemical dispensing systems. The CFS480 Series Stainless Steel Piston Type Flow Switch is a large-body inline flow switch that delivers ample flow rates with minimal pressure drop. Larger than the CFS380, the CFS480 is ideal for processes that push more fluid through their systems and demand low pressure drops.

The CFS380 Series Piston Type Flow Switch uses 100 micron filtration and is less susceptible to clogging than other high-pressure inline flow switches. The one-piece magnetic PPS composite piston makes the CFS380 ideal for high-pressure applications such as industrial cleaning equipment. The CFS380 is also an excellent choice for semiconductor cooling applications where simple design and reliable operation are required. The CFS380P Series Piston Type Flow Switch is a variation on the CFS380 and offers an ideal choice for coolant applications requiring reliable flow detection in HVAC, semiconductor, welding, medical device and other applications. 1/4" quick disconnect units have a host of snap-on mating adapters to fit most piping requirements.
