FCI provides circulate swap to guard from dry operating

Fluid Components International’s dual alarm FLT93 Series move swap supplies an early warning alert to the potential of dry operating situations, cavitation and other pump points that may lead to emergency shutdowns and expensive upkeep.

FCI’s FLT93 Series move change reliably screens the flow and temperature of liquids, gases, and slurries. It is designed for pump wet/dry detection, the place sudden, sudden reductions in media circulate charges can leave pumps vulnerable to over-heating circumstances that shutdown course of lines and require troubleshooting and fixing. The SIL2 rated instrument is meant for heavy-duty, doubtlessly hazardous course of industry environments and comes with a comprehensive listing of global security approvals.
It has a no shifting parts design and offers a robust scheme for pump safety with its dual alarm functionality. With Alarm 1, the swap detects a low move state of affairs wherever between 0.01 and 3 ft per second FPS (0.003–0.9 m per second MPS). This low flow alarm is a pre-warning signal for the control system or operator who can then determine to maintain the pump working or to close it down.
If an Alarm 2 occurs as a outcome of the feed line to the pump is operating dry, this may be an emergency sign to shut down the pump instantly because the bearings now see gas as an alternative of a liquid as a warmth transfer media. In pressure gauge 10 bar , the temperature of the bearings might rise very fast. Using a circulate change prevents permanent injury to the pump’s bearings.
