Flow sensors can be used to monitor the flow from a valve each time it is actuated. They work by watching for flow every time a valve is actuated and then transmitting a signal to the system . Once the system has confirmed flow, it doesn’t monitor the flow sensor again until the next valve cycle. As a result, if the duration is quite long, and flow is confirmed within the first .5 second, the system would not detect it if the flow stopped after that time until the next cycle. Another limitation is that the sensors can not differentiate between the flow of fluid or air. As a result, if the fluid reservoir runs dry so air is flowing through the valve instead of fluid, it would not create an alarm. In this case, a low level switch in the fluid reservoir would detect the problem. One other limitation is that since a flow sensor requires some time to sense flow, it is usually not possible to detect flow for a duration of less than about 250 milliseconds.
Changing from Alucabond/Composite panel to Solid Aluminium Sheet
Do you find yourself having to Route 3mm solid Aluminium sheet in preference to Alucabond/Composite panel? If you are experiencing any of the following you need to talk to our John Barker (Managing Director) of Unist Australia.
- Ragged cutting
- Burning out cutters
- Breaking router bits
- Terrible surface finish
- Just the inability to get the job done
We understand your problem, you need to lubricate the routing cutter with our 3 nozzle Coolubricator.
For help on this matter call John Barker on 02 8850 2022 or email [email protected].
