Model 2600 flow switch operates by a two-mode design: set point and by-pass. The set point is achieved either by increasing or decreasing liquid flow at the calibrated set point of the flow switch. A magnet-equipped shuttle being displaced at the calibrated set point actuates the hermetically sealed reed switch housed within the removable bonnet assembly. The by-pass mode operates to allow for high flow, but still maintains the low pressure drop.

A bold, gold, open-air coupe may not be the ticket to automotive nirvana for every consumer, but Lexus’ LF-C2 concept car certainly turned heads at the recent Los Angeles Auto Show. What’s more, it may provide a glimpse of the luxury automaker’s future.
The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
