Float Switch, External Cage, Horizontal

The Delta Controls Model 750 Float Switch utilizes a balanced horizontal element design for point level detection. Model 750 is suitable for high temperature and pressure. The sensing elements can be made solid for high pressures, better reliability, and corrosion resistance. A float is held in a horizontal position by a counterweight pivot mechanism. As the liquid level rises, the sensing element is moved vertically up. This movement results in short stroke rotary motion which carries the drive magnet into the field of the switch station magnet.

The vertical dimension has a nominal requirement. Its dual magnet positive switching action is reliable as well as insensitive to vibration and shock. This modern design has significant advantages over vertically rising float design. The straight through piping is efficient, lowers installation costs, and switch point can be set to a new elevation without cutting on the process vessel.

The switch magnet is pushed against the side of the sealing tube and the output switch is actuated. When the liquid level falls, the sensing element moves down with it. The drive magnet is rotated back through the magnet fields; the switch magnet is repulsed, the switch returns to its original position, and the output switch deactuates. The dual opposed magnet design provides snap action of the switch mechanism; immunity from vibration, and greatly improved reliability.
