Help with Flow Switches specifications:

Process Media Type Typically, the process media type is determined by the meter technology. For additional guidance, refer to information about meter technologies, or consult the manufacturer.
   Process Media Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Gas       Devices measure the flow of gases. 
   Liquid       Devices measure the flow of liquids. 
   Steam       Devices can accommodate mixed-phase materials such as steam. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.

Environment
   Operating Temperature       The temperature range over which the device must operate. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the limits in a "From - To" range; when both are specified, matching products will cover entire range. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.

Process Operating Conditions
   Operating Pressure       Operating pressure is the maximum head pressure of the process media that devices can withstand. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Media Temperature Range       Media temperature range is the maximum media temperature that can be monitored. It is usually dependent on construction and liner materials. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.

Flow Performance Range A meter's performance can be determined by its turndown ratio. Turndown ratio is the effective dynamic or operating range of the flow meter. For example, if a 500 SCCM flow rate device has a turndown ratio of 50:1; it will operate effectively and resolve flow down to 10 SCCM. If the same device has a turndown of 100:1, then it will resolve effectively to 5 SCCM.
   Mass Flow Rate Range       Mass flow range is the range of flow in mass/time. This specification applies to mass flow sensors and meters. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the limits in a "From - To" range; when both are specified, matching products will cover entire range. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Velocity Flow Rate Range       Velocity flow range is the range of flow in distance/time. This specification applies to velocity flow sensors and meters. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the limits in a "From - To" range; when both are specified, matching products will cover entire range. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Gas Volumetric Flow Rate Range       Gas volumetric flow rate range is the range of flow in volume/time. This specification applies to volumetric flow sensors and meters for gases. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the limits in a "From - To" range; when both are specified, matching products will cover entire range. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Liquid Volumetric Flow Rate Range       Liquid volumetric flow rate range is the range of flow in volume/time. This specification applies to volumetric flow sensors and meters for liquids. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the limits in a "From - To" range; when both are specified, matching products will cover entire range. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.

   Mounting Type       
   Your choices are...         
   In-line       In-line flow meters are installed directly in the process line. They have a variety of end-fittings including flanges, threads, and compression fittings. Typically, in-line flow meters require a straight run of pipe for installation. 
   Insertion Type       Devices are inserted perpendicular to flow path. They usually require a threaded hole in the process pipe or another means of access. 
   Non-Invasive       Non-invasive flow meters do not require mounting directly in the process flow and can be used in closed piping systems. Ultrasonic flow meters such as Doppler devices may use this type of mounting to read the flow through the pipe.

   Clamp       Devices are inserted parallel to the flow path and clamped between two existing process pipes. External clamp-on flow meters are non-invasive. They do not require mounting directly in the process flow and can be used in closed piping systems.  Ultrasonic, or Doppler, flow meters may use this type of mounting to read the flow through the pipe. 
   Compression       Compression fittings tighten down a sleeve or ferrule over a joint to prevent leakage. 
   Flanged       Devices are inserted parallel to the flow path, usually between two pieces of existing, flanged process pipes. Circular or square flanges are used to connect the fitting, typically via bolting or welding. 
   Plain End       Devices have a plain, straight-pipe end that can be inserted into the bell end of the connecting pipe. 
   Socket Weld / Union       The end fitting is designed for welding or soldering and can be a weld neck. 
   Threaded       Devices are inserted parallel to the flow path and threaded into two existing process pipes. National pipe thread (NPT) is the most common thread type.  
   Tube End / Hose Nipple       Tube-end or hose-nipple is a common description for a short piece of pipe, usually with male threaded ends. 
   VCO® / VCR®       VCO® and VCR® connections are proprietary, threaded fittings for vacuum applications that use the Swagelok design. VCO® fittings have an O-ring face seal.  VCR® fittings have a metal gasket face seal. VCO and VCR are registered trademarks of Cajon Company. Swagelok is a registered trademark of Swagelok Co.
