Emerson Announces Mobrey Float Switch for Marine Hazardous Area Applications
Float switch combines ATEX and marine approvals for reliable high or low level alarms in harsh environments.
AUSTIN, TEXAS (October 4th, 2007). A new Mobrey magnetic float switch from Emerson Process Management is the first float switch to combine ATEX and marine approvals in one standard product.
The new marine hazardous area float switch is flameproof and is available for both submersible and hose-proof duties. It is ideal for high or low level alarm and pump control duty in marine tanks in the most arduous and demanding of environments.
Mobrey magnetic float switches are robust and reliable. They are used in a wide variety of process and storage applications, but are particularly popular in marine and offshore installations because their simple, robust design offers long-term reliability in the harshest of conditions.
The new marine hazardous area float switch is ATEX certified for use in Zone 1 areas with group IIC gases. It is available in versions sealed to IP68 (submersible) and IP66 (hose-proof). It carries all the popular marine approvals including Lloyds, DNV, ABS, BV, RINA and RM.
The switch comes with Aluminium bronze wet-side housing as standard, with a wide range of float and switch combinations available. It can either be horizontally or vertically mounted into the tank for hose-proof duties or horizontally mounted directly inside the tank for submersible duties.
