Possible areas of application
SIKA flow monitors keep measurement of the flow of low-viscosity liquids in pipelines. Our SIKA VH500 paddle flow switches are especially suitable for marine applications such as:
- Cooling water monitoring
- Lubrication control
- Monitoring for leaks
in marine engines and compressors..
The flowing medium hits the plate secured to the end of a paddle. The resulting dynamic pressure causes the paddle to travel. This, in turn, causes the actuation of a micro switch.
