A unique Magnetic Linkage isolates the electrical compartment from controlled product, reducing maintenance and improving sensitivity. The sealed switch compartment and sealed leads yield the utmost in reliable operation. A wide selection of diaphragms and switches is available with choices of flange or suspension mounting to fit your specific application. The dry level Ultra-Mag™ Level Switch is extremely sensitive and very economical. The magnetic linkage makes this simple explosion-proof diaphragm switch the most rugged and reliable level control for a variety of products. Mounting Selection: A choice of either suspension or flange mounting is available to match your application. Flange mounting is the best choice for control of low or intermediate level in vessels containing granular product that does not "bridge", "rathole", or otherwise build up on vessel walls. Choose suspension mounting for high level in vessels and for better operation with "bridging" product. See below for more information on suspension and flange mounting kits. Note that the mounting configuration is represented by the letter "S" for suspension or "F" for flange which is the second digit in the part number. Diaphragm Selection: A wide variety of diaphragms is available to match product bulk density, flowability, abrasiveness and temperature requirements while providing maximum sensitivity. The best choice for vessels subject to pressure or vacuum is "breathable" fabric (P Series), requiring no venting. Non-porous elastomer (G Series) type diaphragms are the best choice for more abrasive product and broader temperature range applications. Venting is always required with the G series and if used in pressurized vessels, venting to the tank atmosphere is required to allow pressure equalization. A slide rule "Diaphragm Selector" is available from the factory to help you choose the diaphragm best suited to your application. Suspension Mounting is normally used for high level monitoring in vessels. For product over 20 lbs./cu. ft., the level switch (diaphragm face) should be located about 1/3 of the distance from the vessel wall to the point of entry of the product. For product less than 20 lbs./cu. ft., the unit should be located closer to the point of entry of the product, about 1/2 the distance from the vessel wall to the point of entry. Pressure required to depress the diaphragm and trip the switch is in the range of 5-15 oz in the horizontal direction (perpendicular to the diaphragm). Suspension mounting provides the easiest vertical adjustment capability, greatest sensitivity and best maintenance conditions. Suspension Assembly Kits: Pre-assembled kits are available from the factory, or you can build your own kits using standard pipe fittings. Pipes and fittings are normally galvanized steel, but aluminum and stainless steel pipes and fittings are available. Units pictured above are secured to a steel cover plate that rests on a rectangular steel flange welded into the top of the vessel. Aluminum and stainless coverplates and flanges are also available. Standard 48" long x 1" pipe provides working depth (WD) up to 48". Longer pipe (to provide greater WD) is available. GS Series switches have upper (L1 = 28" standard) and lower (L2 = 20" standard) 1" pipes, with a tee (for stilling pot) in between. A stilling pot is required to equalize pressure and keep dirt from building up behind the diaphragm. PS series require a 1/2" conduit in 1" suspension pipe for explosion-proof applications. The 1/2" conduit (56" standard length) is a standard part of the GS series assembly.
