F10 & F50
Flow Switches
DESCRIPTION
Magnetrol ® flow switches are highly reliable devices
utilized to sense the start or stop of flow in horizontal
pipelines containing oil and petroleum derivatives,
chemicals, water, or air.
Vane-actuated Model F10 switches are used on gas or
liquid flow applications in 2" or larger line sizes.
Disc actuated Model F50 switches are in-line type used
for sensing clean liquids in 2" or smaller line sizes.
FEATURES
• Actuation on increasing or decreasing flow
• Special sensing elements for non-standard or high
flow applications
Model F50
Model F10
• Designed for horizontal pipe applications
• Available switch styles include dry contact,
hermetically sealed and pneumatic

APPLICATIONS
• Field adjustable
• Low pressure drop
• Pump staging or failure
• Process pressures to 1000 psig (69 bar)
• Pipeline flow detection
• Process temperatures to +450° F (+232° C)
• Valve failure
• Standard flow vanes for 2" thru 10" flow lines
• Loss of pipeline flow
Model
F50
• Pipe blockage/rupture
• No calibration required
• Bronze or stainless steel construction
• Pump inlet flow protection
• Process pressures to 1150 psig (79.2 bar)
• Check valve blockage/leakage
• Process temperatures to +750° F (+399° C)
• Alarm on eyewash or shower safety station
• Bodies for flow lines from 3⁄4" to 2"
TECHNOLOGY
Model
F10
Flow through the horizontal pipeline causes the pivoted
vane assembly to swing in the direction of the flow. The
vane assembly lifts an attraction sleeve which in turn
causes the magnet to pull in and actuate the switch.
above the attraction sleeve. Turning the adjusting screw
clockwise increases the flow rate at which the switch
actuates. Adjustments can be made while the flow switch
is in service.
The O-ring sealed adjusting screw in the top of the
enclosing tube compresses the range spring located

The rate of flow through the valve body raises or lowers
the disc. This in turn raises or lowers the magnetic sleeve
within its sealed non-magnetic enclosing tube. On an
increasing flow rate, the magnetic sleeve rises into the

field of the permanent magnet, located outside the
enclosing tube, actuating the attached switch mechanism.
When the flow rate drops below the rate for which the
flow disc is calibrated, a reversal of this action occurs.

CORRECTION
To determine the actuating flow rates for liquids other
than water (approximate viscosity of 20 centistokes or
less), a specific gravity correction factor must be applied
to the water flow rates given in the table. For gas/air
applications, consult factory.

Switch Series and Non-Inductive Ampere Rating
Model F10 Example:
The maximum adjustment for an increasing flow rate on
a Model F10 with a liquid specific gravity of .70 in an 8"
line is: 230 GPM x 1.20 = 276 GPM.
Model F50 Example:
The actuation flow rate of a liquid with specific gravity
of 1.10 on increasing flow for a Model F50 with a 1"
body and an “E” size disc is: 5.5 GPM x 0.95 = 5.2 GPM.
