What is Magnetic Level Indicator?
The magnetic level gauge is a type of level sensor that uses the buoyancy of water and the repulsive and attractive magnetic properties of magnets to measure the levels of liquids. Thanks to these features, it allows the liquid level to be monitored remotely by integrating with the automation systems. Thanks to their reliability in economical and constantly changing level measurements, they have started to be preferred in many sectors.
How Does a Magnetic Level Gauge Work?
Magnetic level indicators work on the principle of compound containers. Therefore, the level in the measuring chamber (tube) and the level in the tank are the same. Inside the measuring tube is a float with magnets. As the float moves in the tube with vertical up-down movement, the direction of the flaps changes, and the color of the flaps, which are painted with different colors (usually red-white), changes. This allows us to monitor the visual level. With the adaptation of the level indicator with the digital control device, the level values can be monitored remotely via the automation system.
