Installing A Chemical Level Switch
To keep track of the level of liquid media inside a chemical tank, a chemical level switch is fitted. The following steps are commonly included in the installation process:
based on the chemical characteristics of the liquid media and the particular requirements of the application, choosing the right type of level switch. For instance, since they can be submerged in liquid media and offer precise level measurements, submersible chemical level sensors are a useful option for bulk chemicals.
Attaching the level switch to the tank’s side or suspending it from a bracket will allow you to install it in the tank. The sensor should be placed in the tank at the desired level.
connecting a local or remote controller to the level switch’s output signal. Either wires or a wireless signal can be used for this. The signal can then be used by the controller to operate relays and other equipment that controls the level of liquid media in the tank.
installing switches for high and low chemical levels. These are used to keep an eye on the liquid media level in the tank and, if it rises or falls, to sound an alert or stop the flow of liquid media.
Before installing the level switch, it is crucial to make sure the liquid medium is spotless and debris-free. This is due to the possibility of debris or impurities causing the floats or other level switch components to stick and produce erroneous readings.
The suitable sort of level switch must also be used to fit the chemical characteristics of the liquid medium, such as chemical compatibility, temperature, pressure, and general ambient conditions.
