Applications of the level switch

  • Mounting on engines, tanks, vessels or enclosures, where, due to a lack of space, installation within them is not possible
  • Use for turbulent liquid levels such as in oil sumps in large engines, gearboxes etc.
  • Pump and level control and monitoring of distinct filling levels
  • Chemical, petrochemical industry, natural gas, offshore, shipbuilding, machine building, power generating equipment, power plants
  • Process water and drinking water treatment

Description of the level switch

In an external chamber (bypass chamber), a float with a permanent magnet moves on a guide tube in relation to the liquid level, following the principle of communicating vessels. Within the guide tube is fitted a reed contact (inert gas contact), which is energised, through the non-magnetic walls of the float and guide tube, by the approach of the float magnet. By using a magnet and reed contact the switching operation is non-contact, free from wear and needs no power supply. The contacts of the level switch are potential-free.

The switching functions always refer to a rising liquid level.

The level switch is simple to mount and maintenance-free, so the costs of mounting, commissioning and operation are low.
