The FC/FD series of magnetic level switches from Aplus Finetek Sensor Inc. uses the principles of buoyancy and magnetism to provide a rugged and cost effective switch. A single FC/FD series unit, requiring only one penetration into the tank can be provided from one to four switch points. This is a very cost-effective solution for pump control, multipoint process control and many other applications.
The magnetic level switch can be provided with either plastic or stainless steel materials of construction and is designed to operate with liquids having densities of S.G. ≥ 0.45. Process connections can be either threaded or flanged of a wide range of sizes. Anti-corrosive units, marine certified units and explosion proof versions are all available.
The FC/FD units can be used in tanks with turbulent liquid surfaces that can be created by heavy inlet fill or agitation by the use of the "pipe shield" option that calms the fluid level within the pipe shield allowing for reliable operation of the floats. All flange mounted units can be equipped with a manual test function for applications requiring periodic verifiable operation.
