PEECO High Pressure Flow Switches

For Hazardous Locations with Maximum Allowable Pressure to 10,000 PSI

PEECO HIGH PRESSURE FLOW SWITCHFlow Actuated Electrical Switches are unique in the field of flow controls.  Our switches are not a standard shelf item, but are specifically produced to accommodate your application.  The flow switches are maintenance free in lines from 1/16" to 12' or larger.

Utilizing ¼" thick Heat Treated aluminum cover with 5 fully engaged threads, all units are designed to encapsulate any internal explosion. In lieu of a bellows assembly a solid rod extends through a flexure tube brazed or welded into a S.S. ball fixture. Unit has been successfully field tested up to 10,000psi. Wall thickness of the flexure tube will vary with pressure requirements. This model is recommended for all pressures over 600 psi. Each of the four basic styles shown are adaptable to many other fittings and configurations.
