High Pressure Liquid Level Switches are displacer actuated units, utilizing a single switch mechanism for level alarm or control functions. These units are designed for service pressures up to 5000 psig (345 bar) and liquids with specific gravities of 0.40 and above.
A permanent magnet is attached to a pivoted switch actuator. As the float/displacer rises following the liquid level, it raises the attraction sleeve into the field of the magnet, which then snaps against the non-magnetic enclosing tube, actuating the switch. The enclosing tube provides a static pressure boundary between the switch mechanism and the process. On a falling level, the float/displacer deactivates the switch.
