Title: AUTOMATIC FLUID FLOW CONTROL DEVICE
Abstract:
One embodiment relates to an automatic fluid flow control device (1) for a fluid supply, the device comprising: an actuator (41) that carries or includes a magnet (43), the actuator being movable within a housing (3) from a first position corresponding to a normal fluid supply to a second position corresponding to a fluid oversupply, wherein the actuator (41) is removable from the housing (3) to enable the device to be cleaned, and the housing and actuator are configured so that the actuator can only be accommodated in the housing in an orientation that enables said magnet to exert a magnetic force to close a valve in said fluid supply as said actuator moves from said first to said second position.
