INTRODUCTION
Step Three
About this Manual:
Technology:
PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE MANUAL PRIOR TO
INSTALLING OR USING THIS PRODUCT. This manual
includes information on all models of Flowline Thermo-Flo Flow
Switches: FT10 and GT10 series. Please refer to the part number
located on the switch label to verify the exact model which you
have purchased.
The thermal dispersion flow switch measures liquid or gas temperature to determine changes in flow velocity. As fluid flows across the
sensing tips, the temperature is reduced proportionately as a function
of the flow rate. When a temperature or velocity shift reaches the user
defined set point, the switch changes state indicating the appropriate
flow condition (flow or no-flow).
User’s Responsibility for Safety:
FLOWLINE's sophisticated electronics convert the temperature shift
into a signal which indicates whether a flow or no-flow condition
occurs. Depending on how the sensor is wired, this signal may be
wired for normally open or normally closed circuits.
Flowline manufactures a wide range of flow switches and technologies. While each of these sensors is designed to operate in a
wide variety of applications, it is the user’s responsibility to select
a sensor model that is appropriate for the application, install it
properly, perform tests of the installed system, and maintain all
components. The failure to do so could result in property damage
or serious injury.
Proper Installation and Handling:
Because this is an electrically operated device, only properlytrained staff should install and/or repair this product. Use a proper
sealant with all installations. Note: Always install the 3/4” Viton
gasket with all versions of Thermo-Flo with metric threads. The G
threaded version will not seal unless the gasket is properly
installed. Never overtighten the sensor within the fitting, beyond a
maximum of 80 inch-pounds torque. Always check for leaks prior
to system start-up.
Material Compatibility:
The FT10 and GT10 series sensors are available in two different wetted materials. Models FT10-1__5 and GT10-1__5 are made of
Polypropylene (PP) with Ryton tips. Models FT10-5__5 and GT105__5 are made of Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF). Make sure that the
model you have selected is compatible with the application liquid. To
determine the chemical compatibility between the sensor and its application liquids, refer to an industry reference such as the Compass
Corrosion Guide (available from Compass Publications, phone 858589-9636).
Wiring and Electrical:
The supply voltage used to power the sensor should never exceed
a maximum of 36 volts DC. Electrical wiring of the sensor should
be performed in accordance with all applicable national, state, and
local codes.
Flammable, Explosive and Hazardous Applications:
DO NOT USE THE FT10 OR GT10 SERIES GENERAL PURPOSE FLOW SWITCHES IN HAZARDOUS LOCATIONS.
WARNING
The rating for the relay is 60 VA
Flowline’s Thermo-Flo flow switches are not recommended for
use with electrically charged application liquids. For most reliable operation, the liquid being measured may need to be electrically grounded.
Always install the 3/4” Viton gasket with all versions of the
powered sensors with metric threads. The G threaded version
will not seal unless the gasket is installed properly.
FLOWLINE's Thermo-Flo flow switches have no moving parts to
clog or foul, making them suitable for a variety of applications,
including non-coating and non-scaling liquids. The FT10 series
directly measure mass flow and can operate over a broad range of liquids from 0.4 to 1.2 specific gravity, 1 to 300 cp. The GT10 series
directly measure mass flow and can operate over a broad range of liquids from 0.4 to 1.2 specific gravity, 1 to 300 cp.
Initialization Sequence for FT10 series:
Powering up the FT10 is different in water and in air. When the flow
switch is powered up while submersed, the FT10 will immediately
indicate flow before switching to its correct state. When the flow
switch is powered up while in air, the FT10 will immediately indicate
no-flow before indicating its correct state. A time delay may be used
to eliminate this initialization sequence. Flowline's thermal dispersion
relay controllers feature a 0 to 60 second time delay for your convenience.
INSTALLATION
WIRING
Step Four
Step Five
The FT10 series flow switch must always be in contact with
the liquid being measured. The GT10 series flow switch must
never be submersed in liquid. Both flow switches feature a
3/4" NPT threads which will allow it to be used with various
types of fittings. Be sure to check the insertion depth of the
flow switch in the fitting after it is installed. See the diagram
below for the recommended insertion depth.
Supply Voltage:
The supply voltage to the Thermo-Flo flow switch should never
exceed a maximum of 36 VDC. Use controllers or power supplies,
with a minimum output of 12 VDC or a maximum output of 36 VDC.
Required Cable Length:
Determine the length of cable required between the Thermo-Flo flow
switch and its point of termination. Allow enough slack to ensure the
easy installation, removal and/or maintenance of the sensor. The
cable length may be extended up to a maximum of 1000 feet, using a
well-insulated, 14 to 20 gauge shielded four conductor cable.
Wire Stripping:
Using a 10 gauge wire stripper, carefully remove the outer layer of
insulation from the last 1-1/4" of the sensor's cable. Unwrap and discard the exposed foil shield from around the signal wires, leaving the
drain wire attached if desired. With a 20 gauge wire stripper, remove
the last 1/4" of the colored insulation from the signal wires.

When using any type of fitting, the orientation as well as the insertion
depth of the flow switch in the pipe is critical. See the diagram below
for the recommended orientation depth.
Signal Output (Relay switching):
Allows the sensor to switch a small load on or off directly, using an
internal relay rated below 60 VA. The NO/NC status is set by the
polarity of the voltage feeding the red and black wires. The green
wire is the common for the relay and the white wire is the NO or NC,
depending on the polarity of red and black.

WARNING
The flow switch tips have a thin plastic wall which may be damaged if dropped or installed improperly.
The FT10 flow switch is designed for use in liquid. For best
results, avoid installing the FT10 where bubbles are present or
where the tips of the switch may be out of the liquid.
The GT10 flow switch is designed for use in gas applications.
For best results, avoid installing the GT10 where it may be submersed in liquid.

Wiring the Relay Output:
Wiring as a P-Channel or N-Channel output:
The Thermo-Flo relay output can be wired as a dry contact to a VDC
or VAC power source. Thermo-Flo does require 12 - 36 VDC power
to operate the sensor and switch the relay. All illustrations below
identify a Dry switch state as the normal position of the relay.
The Thermo-Flo can be substituted for either a P-Channel (PNP,
sourcing) output or a N-Channel (NPN, sinking) output.
Switching a Normally Open DC Load:
The Red wire connects to Positive (+) of the power supply and the
Black wire connects to Negative (-). The LOAD can be attached to
either the Green or White wires. Complete the circuit by either connecting the Green to (+) VDC power or White to (-) VDC power (see
illustration below).
Normally Open DC Load as a P-Channel Output:
To wire as a NO P-Channel output, follow the directions below. The
Red wire connects to Positive (+) of the power supply and the Black
wire connects to Negative (-). The Green wire is jumpered to the Red
wire while the White wire is connected to the LOAD. Jumper the

CALIBRATION
MAINTENANCE
Step Eight
Step Nine
Set Points:
General:
If the preset factory calibration is not adequate for your application,
follow the calibration steps listed below.
The Thermo-Flo flow switch requires no periodic maintenance except
to clean off any deposits or scaling from the sensor tip as necessary.
It is the responsibility of the user to determine the appropriate maintenance schedule, based on the specific characteristics of the application liquids.
Note: the switch's internal LED will be on when the switch
detects no-flow and will off when the switch detects flow.
1. Install the fitting and flow switch as described in the Installation
section of this manual. Turn the flow switch and controller power
on and adjust the flow rate to the application setting. If the medium to be sensed is likely to be subject to high temperature variations, the flow switch should be set at the highest normal temperature likely to be encountered.
2. Locate the potentiometer knob at the top
of the flow switch. The red LED is visible
through the potentiometer. (If the LED is
on, slowly adjust the potentiometer counterclockwise, with a small flat head
screwdriver until the LED turns off.) The
adjustment is a single turn 270° potentiometer. The initial response time of the
flow switch after adjustment is 1 to 10
seconds. Adjust the potentiometer in slow
increments and wait for the response.

2. Sensor Removal: Make sure that the flow is off and the pressure is down prior to removing the Thermo-Flo. Carefully,
remove the sensor from the installation. Replace the sensor with
a 3/4” NPT plug to insure that liquid does not leak out during this
procedure. Do not re-install the Thermo-Flo if the threads are
damaged.
4. Sensor Installation: Follow the appropriate steps of installation as outlined in the installation section of this manual.
3. Verify that the new calibration is correct by lowering the system
flow rate below the set point and check to see that the red LED
turns on. Then increase the flow rate above the set point and verify that the red LED turns off accordingly.

1. Power: Make Sure that all power to the sensor, controller and/or
power supply is completely disconnected.
3. Cleaning the Sensor: Use a soft bristle brush and mild detergent, carefully wash the Thermo-Flo flow switch. Do not use
harsh abrasives such as steel wool or sandpaper, which might
damage the surface sensor. Do not use incompatible solvents
which may damage the sensor's PP/Ryton or PVDF plastic body.
If the LED is off, slowly adjust the potentiometer clockwise until the light turns on.
Then turn the potentiometer counterclockwise to bring the LED off at a reliable setting. Remember, adjust the potentiometer in slow increments and
wait for the response.
FT10 Series
Cleaning Procedure:
90 fps
Testing the installation:
1. Power: Turn on power to the controller and/or power supply.
2. Immersing the switch: Immerse the sensing tip in its application liquid, by filling the tank up to the switches point of actuation. An alternate method of immersing the switch during preliminary testing is to hold a cup filled with application liquid up to
the switch's tip.
3. Test: With the switch being fluctuated between wet and dry
states, the switch indicator light in the controller should turn on
and off. If the controller doesn't have an input indicator, use a voltmeter or ammeter to ensure that the switch produces the correct
signal.
4. Point of actuation: Observe the point at which the rising or
falling fluid level causes the switch to change state, and adjust the
installation of the switch if necessary.
