Application 

Pump protection for a tailings dam.


Key Requirements

  • - ‘Dry-run’ monitoring for pump protection
  • - Suspended solids to not affect the flow sensor’s operation
  • - Easily adjustable switching point
  • - Wide voltage range
  • - Robust housing


Solution

weber flow-captor with the following key features;

  • - Calorimetric principle flow sensor capable of monitoring flow rates of up to 3m/s and switching loads of up to 400mA
  • - Stainless steel insertion probe than can withstand pressures of up to 100 bar and is not affected by suspended solids
  • - Easily accessible range and set point adjustments with a visual analogue display of flow rate
  • - Wide 10VDC to 36VDC range
  • - Stainless steel IP67 housing that withstands ambient temperatures of up to 70 deg C
