A baffle-type water flow switch is a mechanical switch commonly used in fluid control systems to monitor the flow of water or liquid and to control or protect equipment based on changes in flow. The principle of operation is based on the change in position of the baffle in the fluid, which controls the state of the switch.
It is important to note that different models and brands of baffle-type water flow switches have different performance and characteristics, and therefore need to be considered comprehensively according to specific needs when selecting and applying them to avoid unnecessary problems.
A baffle type water flow switch usually consists of a baffle and a mechanical switch. When the water or liquid flows through the baffle, the baffle will be moved by the force of the water flow. When the position of the baffle reaches a set value, the mechanical switch will be triggered to generate the corresponding control signal or protection.
Baffle-type water flow switch has the advantages of high sensitivity, adjustability, versatility, durability, reliability and easy installation, so it is widely used in industrial control, fire fighting, water supply, air conditioning, HVAC and other fields. At the same time, there are some disadvantages, such as high fluid resistance, high requirements for fluid characteristics and difficult maintenance, so it needs to be carefully considered when selecting and applying to avoid unnecessary problems.
Baffle-type water flow switches have several key features:
High sensitivity: The baffle type water flow switch can detect very small changes in flow rate, thus being able to improve the control accuracy of the water system.
High versatility: Baffle-type water flow switches are suitable for a variety of fluids, including water, air, oil, etc., and therefore have a high degree of versatility.
Durable: Baffle-type water flow switches are usually made of durable materials that provide a high degree of durability and stability for long-term use.
High reliability: The baffle type water flow switch realizes the trigger of the switch through mechanical movement, which has higher reliability and stability compared to electronic switches, etc.
Easy installation: Baffle-type water flow switches are usually installed with threaded connections or flange connections, making them very easy to install and suitable for a variety of different water systems.
It should be noted that the characteristics of baffle-type water flow switches are influenced by many factors, such as baffle material, fluid properties, and baffle shape, so careful consideration is required when selecting and applying baffle-type water flow switches.
The main disadvantages of baffle-type water flow switches include the following:
High fluid resistance: The baffle in a baffle-type water flow switch creates resistance to the flow of water, which affects the overall flow of the water system.
High requirements for fluid characteristics: Baffle-type water flow switches need a stable water flow to work properly, and if there are fluctuations or eddies in the water flow, their accuracy may be affected.
Difficult to maintain: Due to the presence of mechanical moving parts in the baffle-type water flow switch, regular inspection and maintenance is required to ensure proper operation.
Limited sensitivity: The sensitivity of baffle-type water flow switches is limited by the size, material and shape of the baffle and cannot detect very small changes in flow.
Limited by pressure and temperature: The use of a baffle-type water flow switch is limited by the maximum pressure and temperature it can withstand, and if the limits are exceeded, damage or failure may occur.
