Established for over 30 years the Shoflo Flow Indicator is a simple and low cost device for the indication of fluid flow, making it possible to see at a glance whether liquid is moving in a pipeline. Suitable for most fluid types including air, nitrogen, water and oil, the Shoflo is widely used by power stations and pump manufacturers throughout the UK and Europe.
Simple Low Cost Indication
The Shoflo Indicator is a simple and cost effective visual flow device for the indication of fluid flow.
Widely used in condensate lines, oil lubrication systems, cooling water circuits, etc., this extremely effective indicator makes it possible to see at a glance whether liquid is flowing in a pipeline.
Prevents Reverse Flow
Additionally the construction of the Shoflo enables it to act as a non-return valve, thus preventing flow from occurring in the reverse direction.
Simple Low Cost Operation
The body contains a central tube into which fits a moulded ball. The chamber is covered by a transparent dome secured by a clamping ring.
Available in 1/2″ and 1″ sizes, the simplicity of design minimises wear, ensuring exceptional reliability and long life.
Under no flow conditions the Shoflo ball adopts a quiescent position within the tube. Fluid flow increasingly projects the ball into the top of the chamber, where it oscillates freely whilst flow is present. This simple method of indication provides immediate and positive indication of flow, even from a considerable distance.
