What is Level Switch?
A level switch is a device used to detect the level of a liquid or solid in a container or tank. It is a type of sensor that can be used to determine the level of matter in a given range and can be either buoyant or capacitive.
Float operated level switches use a floating element such as a float that moves up and down with the liquid level. As the float rises or falls, it activates a mechanical switch or a sensor that sends a signal to a control system. This type of level switch is often used in water tanks, sewage treatment plants, and other applications where constant monitoring of the liquid level is required.
Capacitive level switches, on the other hand, use an electric field to detect the presence of a substance. Such level switches are generally used in applications where the monitored substance is not conductive or the presence of a float and other mechanical element would not be practical.
Where is Level Switch Used?
Level switches can be used in a wide variety of industries, including chemical processing, oil and gas, food and beverage, and water treatment. They are an essential part of many process control systems, as they provide a reliable way to monitor and control the level of a substance in a container or container.
