PEECO Flow Rate and Pressure Drop Information

* Minimum Flow Rate Required For Actuation By H2O & GN²
I = Increasing Flow |  D = Decreasing Flow  | P = Pressure Drop In PSI
All Flow Switches Were Tested At 100 psi and 300 psi Standard Units With A 15A -125-250-480 VAC SPDT Micron-Switch. Lower actuation points can be reached using our special folding paddle.
