Product Description

Flow-Mon’s Rising Ball, introduced to give industry a high standard flow indicator that meets the needs of simple flow applications. When calibrated flow indicators are not needed, the Rising Ball will satisfy most requirements within pipe sizes 8mm to 40mm. Being constructed from high quality materials this in-line indicator will meet the needs of many chemical applications, as well as being suitable for water, oil and gases.
Whilst there is no flow in the pipe the white PTFE Ball remains seated in the body socket. As the flow rises the ball will lift out of the socket, clearly becoming visible. The ball will continue to rise and move freely in the dome as the flow rate increases.
The Flow-Mon Rising Ball needs to be mounted on a horizontal plane, with the glass dome positioned upwards. When there is flow in the pipes the ball can be seen clearly, giving a positive confirmation of flow.
