FLT93B Flow Switch

FCI Model FLT93 with yellow enclosure and stainless steel flow element

Flow Switch Summary

The FLT93B BASIC insertion type FlexSwitch for flow and temperature monitoring represents the first true technological breakthrough in thermal technology in over a decade. FCI is the only thermal manufacturer providing temperature compensation to ensure set point accuracy for process temperatures that vary up to ±100°F. The FLT93B is easily field-configured, providing unparalleled flexibility, accuracy and stability for all multiple process sensing and switching requirements.

The FLT93B BASIC flow switch is available with all of the below listed standard features for a very attractive price and with quick delivery as soon as 2 business days ARO.
