FLT93S Level Switch

Liguid Level Switch Summary

The FLT93S insertion type FlexSwitch for level and temperature monitoring represents the first true technological breakthrough in thermal technology in over a decade. This product was designed for heavy industrial environments including high temperature and high pressure. FCI is the only thermal manufacturer providing temperature compensation to ensure set point accuracy for process temperatures that vary up to ± 100° F. The FLT93S is easily field-configured or factory preset, providing unparalleled flexibility, accuracy and stability for all multiple process sensing and switching requirements.

Applications

  • Interface and sump level detection
  • Interface/sump level detection in separation vessels
  • Agitation detection
  • Interface/level detection in settling vessels
  • Foam or sediment level control
  • Liquid/resin interface detection
