Potential Application Problem Solved With Magnetic Level Indicator Design



Engineers, industrial process operators and stakeholders recognize the value and necessity of accurate and timely information from an operating process. Experience has shown that the environment and activities surrounding process installations and equipment can sometimes have a significant impact on the ability of measurement instrumentation continually gather and deliver accurate process data.

Concerns include:

  • Weather - An element whose impact cannot be understated....or easily predicted.
  • Physical Contact - Equipment and measurement devices must be protected from damaging impact.
  • Security - Vandalism, cyber invasion, and other external threats are possible

Our task is generally to effectively manage the operation of whatever processes are in place. Our responsibility, as operators of machines and handlers of materials that can produce hazardous or life threatening conditions in the case of failure or error, is to foresee every reasonably probable event that could affect the safe and proper operation of our industrial processes and mitigate or prevent their impact.

One manufacturer has developed an innovative solution to a potential problem in the application of magnetic level indicators. The short video below describes the conditions which could potentially result in instrument failure, and the way in which the product design change successfully overcomes any adverse impact on process measurement. Invest less than three minutes of your time to watch the video and build your application knowledge by learning from the experience of others. Do not hesitate to contact a product application specialist for more detail, or to discuss your process measurement needs.

Check valves are employed throughout all types of fluid systems to prevent reverse flow. There are a number of styles or designs, each with attributes which determine its suitability for a particular application.

Check-All Valve is a USA manufacturer producing a broad selection of check valves for industrial use. Their EPIC™ series of poppet style valves deliver a number of solid features.

  • In-line spring loaded poppet type valve
  • Function in any flow orientation
  • Smooth contoured surfaces in flow path
  • Minimum change in flow direction through the valve
  • Minimized pressure drop
  • Complete drop-in replaceable insert for easy service
  • Quiet operation
  • Quick and smooth operation
The check valves are available in male and female pipe connections, as well as double ferrule and flared tube. The valves are suitable for liquid, gas or steam application with sizes ranging from 1/8" to 1-1/4".
