Operating principle of flow sensors
Flow sensors, a type of process sensor, are often also referred to as flow monitors. The sensors are based on the calorimetric (thermal) principle without any moving parts, which makes the flow sensors particularly resistant to dirt and enables them to work without any wear and tear. The different measurement principles ensure that both liquids and gases are monitored.
Consequently there are numerous applications for flow sensors, such as:
- Flow monitoring, e.g. in cooling circuits on machine tools
- Run-dry protection, e.g. for pumps in compressors and heat exchangers
- Flow monitoring in ventilation systems and/or suction operations
