Features & Applications

APPLICATIONS

  • Float Switches
  • Float Valves
  • Liquid level Controls
  • Boiler Feed Water Controls
  • Sump Pumps
  • Steam Traps

CAUTION: Do not heat floats to elevated temperatures without considering the increases in internal pressure and other hazards involved.

TANKS

Most of the floats in this catalog may be made into a tank by drilling through the connector with the tap drill. If two connectors are desired, another one can easily be added on the opposite end. Please ask for a quote.

Special tanks will be quoted if quantities are sufficient and within the size range shown in this catalog.

CAUTION: Do not use floats as tanks without due consideration of the pressures and hazards involved.

MAGNETS

Many floats are available with internal magnets.

Please inquire regarding magnet strength, particularly for high temperature applications. We can refer you to our magnet supplier so you can determine if the magnet is suitable for your application.

SPECIALS

If you don't see what you want, just ask for it.

Practically every item in this catalog started out as a "special". We have an attractive tooling policy and are prepared to consider your special requirements.
