Bespoke Explosion Proof Stainless Steel Float Switch (F/S-FP)

Product Description

The Deeter F/S-FP is explosion proof float switch is a magnetic reed switch or Hall Effect sensor stem for control and indication of a liquid level while in a potentially explosive atmosphere.

Features include:

  • ATEX and IECEx approved.
  • Stainless steel 316L housing and wetted components.
  • Custom length sensor stems up to 6 Metres.
  • Up to 7 switch points on one stem.
  • Custom made for mixed normally open/normally closed switches.
  • Suitable for gas and dust environments.
  • IP68 Ingress protection.
  • Voltage free reed switch contacts or Hall Effect sensing technology.
  • M20 or ½”NPT cable entry.
  • Custom mounting options available.
  • Narrow sensor stem and mounting for tanks without internal access.
  • Suitable for high liquid pressures
  • Can be specified for liquid temperatures down to -55°C

The F/S-FP explosion proof float switch holds ATEX & IECEx certification for use in most regions worldwide.
