Flow-Mon has completed the manufacture and supply of more than 300 flow rate indicator switches for a mining project in Madagascar to protect industrial equipment.

Flow-Mon offers a series of vane-style water flow meters with optional alarm switches for protecting industrial equipment and minimising downtime in the event of cooling water flow failure.

These variable area vane meters monitor the rate of cooling water flow, provide flow indication that assists in problem diagnosis, and respond immediately when flow goes too high or low.

The mechanical flow switches can be wired to trigger shutdown of the process for protection against equipment damage.

Flow-Mon’s small and medium series (1/4in to 21/2in) can accommodate water flows from 0.5 to 800 litres per minute, with the Flow-Mon large series (3in to 8in) accommodating 400 to 5,000 litres per minute.

The vane meters are easy to install, operate and maintain.

They mount inline and in any orientation, with no straight pipe runs required.

Threaded, flanged and wafer connections are available along with any special mounting needs that are required.

The indicators and switches are manufactured specifically for water applications and are rated for all classes, divisions and groups of hazardous locations.

The switches used, have UL/CSA, CE and Atex certifications.

Established in 1971 as a European manufacturer/distributor of flow rate indicators and flow switches, Flow-Mon redesigned the products to meet the demands of the most difficult industrial applications in 1979. In the mid-1980s, the 'Low Flow' (also known as 'CC' or 'Piston') unit was introduced to complete the range of products and offer low flow indication.

In October 2001, a new management team was brought in to move the company forward, with Nathan Smith as managing director. In 2009, Flow-Mon manufactured and sold approximately 5,500 flow monitors and in 2010 was on target to produce 6,000 units.

We specialise in making economical, robust and user-friendly flow monitoring and switch instrumentation and in the past five years have added to our range with two variations of 'sight indicators', the Flow-Mon rising ball and spinner models and the spout-and-flapper-style sight glasses. These products have been a great addition to our range and are satisfying customers with their superior quality.

With a combination of more than 35 years' experience in manufacturing good-quality, robust, affordable products and a new team determined to satisfy all our customers' requirements, Flow-Mon is in a strong position to tackle the challenges faced by manufacturing companies in the 21st century.
