Replace floats with vibronic limit switches

Improve your plant safety and efficiency, therefore availability

Floats are very often used in level applications because of their costs. Nevertheless, their reliability is affected by density changes and build up which cause inaccurate or even no switch points. This fact leads to high maintenance time and costs at the end. We understand your industry requirements and our people have a deep application know how to support you in choosing the right technology to meet your particular needs.

Floats and their limitations

  • They are affected by density variations

  • They are proned to build-up over time which causes inaccurate or no (jamming/ blocking) measurement

  • The maintenance costs are important due to regular needed cleaning and dismantling

  • Proof testing is time consuming and difficult

  • No diagnostics

Liquiphant, a safe problem solver

By replacing floats with Vibronic Limit Switches you will gain:

  • Availability: less time spend maintaining, checking and cleaning

  • Safety: self-monitoring device with SIL3 capabilities in a single device. Measuring principle full filling API 2350 recommendations and recommended principle in report after Buncefield

  • Efficiency: proof testing intervals up to 12 years

Custody transfer - measuring points
