Flow Sensors & Switches
Gems designs and manufactures a complete range of flow sensors and
switches for the reliable and effective measurements of both conductive and
non-conductive fluids, as well as gases. At preset rates ranging from 50 cc/min
to 100 GPM, rugged Gems flow switches will initiate alarm actuation or
automatic system shutdown, making them a vital component of any predictive
maintenance strategy. They are commonly specified for rotating equipment,
conveyors, gas sampling and distilling, water purification systems, welders,
semiconductor equipment, chemical processing, machine tool and robotics
The complete Gems flow sensing portfolio is designed for versatility and performance. It is
organized into five product types. Piston types are designed for low flow rates in gases and liquids from 50 cc/min to 20 GPM, with choice of alloy or plastic housings. Shuttle models are used with high flow rates from 0.5 GPM to 100.0 GPM. Paddle models are for
larger line sizes, typically 1.25" and up. Thermal
dispersion technologies feature no moving parts, making them ideal for applications where particulate matter is
also a concern. Electronic flow switches encompass state-of-the-art electronics and positive visual indication.
All Gems flow switches feature high-quality,
corrosion-resistant materials, ensuring their continued performance within
challenging environments. Material choices, ranging from stainless steel to
Ryton, further offer vast chemical compatibility. In addition, models are
offered with fixed or adjustable actuation settings; viscosity compensation or
high pressures; media compatibility with slurries and particulates; as well as
in-line models and designs to satisfy any mounting or space requirement.
Please consult the Gems standard product catalog for a comprehensive reference of models available
for immediate shipment. A custom flow sensing solution can also be designed and manufactured
in OEM volumes. Often times, custom sensors may be produced with more
competitive lead times than many industry off-the-shelf solutions.
