(Lenexa, Kansas, USA – January 11, 2011) – The 1520 is a vertically mounted, vane-operated flow switch suitable for plant and OEM applications where open or closed contacts are required to signal flow or no flow conditions. The vane extension arm moves a magnet that actuates (deactuates) a hermetically sealed reed switch.

The 1520 belongs to the 1500 series for the oil and gas industry. Low cost and all stainless steel construction sets this product apart from others.

“Besides its rugged construction and that it is CSA explosion proof certified,”

says SOR product manager, Michael Lian,

“the 1520 leak proof design completely isolates the process from the switch. There are no O-rings or seals, and the customer will never need to worry about the process fluid entering the switch compartment.”
