Types of Flow Switches:
Gems line of flow switches feature a broad range of configurations for use in liquids or gases. Material choices, ranging from stainless steel to Ryton offer vast chemical compatibility. Versions include switches with fixed or adjustable actuation settings, models for viscosity compensation or high pressures, in-line models and designs to satisfy any mounting or space requirement.

- Assure flow and/or leak detection in large, high pressure lines in: Compressors, Heat Exchangers, Turbines, Engines, Boilers and Chillers
- Protect high- or low-pressure pumps from cavitation, sense critical reverse flow and protect: Valves, Pumps and Regulators
For low flow rates in liquids and gases
- Models for liquid flow rates as low as 50 cc/min. and gas flow rates as low as 2 SCFH.
- Small, compact housings with port sizes from 1/4" NPT
- Precision built for superior accuracy
- Protect your expensive electronic equipment from coolant flow failure on: Laser Heads, Welders, Power Supplies, High Speed Spindles, X-Ray Tubes and Semiconductor Equipment
