Title: (EN) Automatic Fluid Flow Control Device
Abstract: front page image
(EN)

One embodiment of the invention provides a fluid control device for a fluid supply, the device comprising: a housing (31) defining a fluid supply channel (34) with a fluid inlet (35) for coupling to a fluid supply and a fluid outlet (36) for coupling to an appliance, the housing additionally defining a chamber (44) with an inlet (40) for coupling to an overflow and an outlet (41) for coupling to a drain; a valve (55) located in said fluid supply channel (34) and moveable from a first open position to a second closed position where fluid flow through the channel (34) is substantially restricted; an actuator (52) provided in said chamber (44) and moveable from a first position to a second position, wherein the valve (55) and actuator (44) are magnetically coupled to one another such that movement of the actuator (44) from said first position to said second position causes the valve (55) to move from said open position to said closed position.
