The SMB 3 flow limiter is designed to divide the main line flow into parallel, individual flows. The flow is generated independently of system pressure changes and virtually independently of viscosity, obtaining a constant flow.
The SMB 3 provides a flow rate from 6 to 38 l/min (12.6–80.3 pts/min) and a pressure range of up to 200 bar. The flow limiter monitors oil flow with a signal transmitter or piston detector. These indicators create a fault signal when the flow rate drops to approximately 85%.
The SMB 3 flow limiter is a perfect solution for applications with changing ambient temperatures and needing a stable oil flow, such as in oil circulation lubrication systems.
Features & benefits
Stable oil flow rate, regardless of pressure, temperature or viscosity changes
No need for system pressure control, a pressure relief valve is sufficient
Simple monitoring by signal transmitter
Easy start-up with fixed flow rate via pre-selected nozzle sizes
