Waterflow Alarm Switch with Union

The Model VSR-ST is a vane type waterflow switch for use on wet sprinkler systems that use 1", 1-1/4", 1-1/2" or 2" pipe sizes. It is equipped with a union to accommodate installation in confined spaces.

The unit contains two single pole double throw snap action switches and an adjustable, instantly recycling pneumatic retard. The switches are actuated when a flow of 10 gallons per minute (38 liters per minute) or more occurs downstream of the device. The flow condition must exist for a period of time necessary to overcome the selected retard period.
