Manufacturing professionals working within critical applications, including the biotech field, know the importance of quality auxiliary equipment. The magnetic level gauge is an example of this essential equipment. Magnetic level gauges offer highly accurate fluid measurement capacities, accurately measuring the fluid level in boilers, tanks, and process vessels. Scroll down to learn more about the importance of this crucial piece of manufacturing equipment.
What Is a Magnetic Level Gauge?
Magnetic level gauges help measure the fluid level in manufacturing process vessels. These gauges are typically made from stainless steel. In fact, magnetic level gauges can hold up to even the most extreme conditions. These devices will stand strong through system shock, hazardous materials, high-pressure environments, and environments with excessive moisture. Overall, magnetic level gauges implement the failsafe accuracy of magnetic forces. This helps the gauges detect and communicate ever-changing fluid levels in manufacturing applications.
How Do Magnetic Level Gauges Work?
Magnetic level gauges consist of three main components: the chamber, the float, and the indicator. The chamber is a non-magnetic portion that is usually mounted to the side of the manufacturing vessel. Then, the level indicator is securely linked to a float inside of the manufacturing vessel. Next, as the position of the float changes, the indicator moves up or down by the same amount. This offers the most accurate fluid level reading in a wide range of conditions. Finally, in a more technical sense, these gauges contain magnetic fields that flow through the gauge’s chamber to the indicator, helping manufacturing technicians check internal fluid levels.
L.J. Star Gauges
Are you in need of a custom magnetic level gauge? L.J. Star, our parent company, offers custom-engineered gauges to meet each customer’s specific application. First, L.J. Star’s gauges combine proven buoyancy manufacturing, the reliability of magnetism, and the most durable materials. That, in turn, gives manufacturers total peace of mind, as they can trust in the accuracy of their fluid level readings.
