Series TDFS2 Thermal Dispersion Flow Switch

Non-Mechanical, Low Pressure Drop, Large Pipe Sizes

The Series TDFS2 Thermal Dispersion Flow Switch is a thermal flow switch that indicates whether the flow rate is above or below a user set flow rate. The unit incorporates two LED status indicators providing visual switch indication. The set flow rate (setpoint) is easily field adjustable with included magnet and the unit has both NO and NC NPN outputs.

Product Applications

  • Boiler flow proving
  • Hot water heaters
  • Chillers
  • Liquid transfer systems

Features

  • Better reliability and life expectancy than mechanical flow switches with no paddles or vanes to wear or break, no jams in the paddle movement, and no seals on movement assembly to wear or leak
  • Long operation life, as it is not affected by empty pipe by avoiding overheating with heating above the process temperature and then cooling down to process temperature
  • Lower system run cost due to low pressure drop with 10% insertion into the flow (e.g. 1/8" for 3/4" schedule 40 pipe)

Questions

Question
What flow rate does the TDFS2 work with?
Answer
The TDFS2 can withstand high flow rates and works for setpoint ranges from 0.5 to 10 ft/s (0.15 to 3.0 m/s). As this varies by pipe size, refer to the installation manual for a full flow table by pipe size for exact applicable flow ranges.
Question
Can I use this product for sediment-laden liquids?
Answer
The TDFS2 is designed for homogeneous liquids. However, it has no moving parts and can withstand sediment. As long as the installation instructions are followed and the unit is installed in a chemically compatible fluid, the TDFS2 can be used.
