Atex Flow Switches
The PVL flow switches range offers some of the best piston valve, piston inline and paddle designs for flow control. The latest range of flow switches features switch heads certified to ATEX Directive 94/9/EC, married to a wide variety of mechanical flow control bodies. The products provide intrinsic safety level protection by limiting energy and temperature and minimising the risk of arcing. As such the products may be used in Safety zones 0, 1 and 2, in application areas such as offshore platforms, petrochemical plants, mines, flour mills and other areas where a potentially explosive atmosphere may be present.
The PVL team is also good at helping you specify the ATEX-certified and EX-certified level switches you need. From the LM explosion-proof switch, available in brass or stainless steel (ATEX EExd 11 C T6), through the SL continuous output level control switch with a CENELEC EExd 11 C T6 option, to the remarkable IL4 level control that is suitable for tank depths of up to 10 metres – with an EExd 11B T6 explosion proof option – to the IL5 side-entry level control switch, also with EExd 11B T6 explosion proof option, PVL can offer the level switches you need for potentially explosive atmospheres.

Or any blood vessels.Our PSK adjustable pressure switch makes life easier while you are installing pressurised systems and can make installation faster and more cost-effective. The easily adjustable dial, easy-to-read graduated pressure scale and fixed hysteresis make reliable adjustment of system pressure fast and easy. Once the correct pressure has been established, the device can be locked off using a lockable set-point. Just two models cover the key ranges of 10-100bar and 100-360bar. More...
This could be the world's smallest, all stainless steel level switch! Win a free switch if you can tell us of a smaller one!
Our amazing RFS-13 side-entry level switch has an insertion length of only 2" (50mm). If you can tell us of a smaller stainless steel level switch on current sale, we'll give you one of ours for free! Like its family member the RFS-12P-2, the RFS-13 operates on the magnet and reed switch principle. Constructed of 304 grade stainless steel, the RFS-13 level switch is suitable for the processing, vending and hydraulics industries and has obvious benefits where space is limited. The RFS-13 level switch has a 1/8" BSP parallel thread with a running back nut to allow the switch to be fitted from inside the tank.
