CalFlo™ CFNF1 AC Thermal Mass Air Flow Switch

The CalFlo series of calorimetric flow switches offer units with several features including temperature & flow, compact relay control, strobe alert, adjustable flow, compact airflow, inline airflow, and more. The wide variety of options available enable us to provide the right unit for your specific application. If you need help selecting the correct flow switch, our team is happy to assist in the selection process.

This industrial purpose flow switch is a great choice for monitoring a variety of air or gaseous applications. The CalFlo™ CFNF1 AC Thermal Mass Air Flow Switch features solid-state switching and is extremely reliable even under the harshest environmental conditions. The CFNF1 features a repeatable alarm, an adjustable set-point from 3 to 32 feet per second, and an LED indication of flow. The short housing is intended for use in pipe sizes ½” to 1 ½” in diameter and the long housing is recommended for pipe sizes 2” and up. Typical applications include air conditioning, ventilation, air filter monitoring, extraction fans, blowers, damper regulators, and energy conservation systems.
