Custom Extended Floats Level Switches

August 12, 2010
The float extensions are available in a variety of lengths and materials that depend on the application, conditions and specs that the customer demands. This option extends the pivot arm and places the float further into the process vessel. It is particularly helpful in applications where the nozzle diameter is too small or where process build-up can limit the full travel of the float. Prior to design and manufacture, SOR engineers work closely with the customer to determine the following: specific installation details; potential problems with lower specific gravities; and effects on maximum pressure ratings. All stainless steel construction, process temperature ratings of -40 degrees to +204 degrees Celsius, and pressure ratings up to 1500 psi.
