Reference Information

1.1

Principle of Operation
Figures 1 & 2 illustrate the simple, reliable operating principle of a float level switch. Switching action is obtained
through the use of a magnetic sleeve (4) and a float (3),
displacer or flow sensing element and a switching mechanism (2). These two basic component assemblies are separated by a non-magnetic, pressure tight enclosing tube (5).
The switch (2) and magnet (1) are assembled to a mechanism with a swinging arm which operates on precision
stainless steel pivots.

Operating Cycle
As level of a liquid in a vessel rises (Figure 1), the float
rides on the liquid surface moving the magnetic sleeve
upward in the enclosing tube and into the field of the
switch mechanism magnet. As a result, the magnet is
drawn in tightly to the enclosing tube moving the switch
adjusting screw and allowing the activating arm of the
snap switch to move, making or breaking the electrical
circuit. As the liquid level recedes (Figure 2), the float and
magnetic sleeve moves downward until the switch magnet
releases and is drawn outward, away from the enclosing
tube by a tension spring. This in turn allows the activating arm of the snap switch to move, thus reversing
switch action.
Switch mechanisms may include a single switch or multiple switches, depending on operational requirements and
switching action desired.

Installation

2.1

Replacing Switch Mechanism

Caution: Before attempting to remove a switch mechanism, be certain to pull disconnect switch or otherwise assure that
electrical circuit through control is de-energized.

Figure 6
Mounting Screw

1. Disconnect wiring from supply side of terminal block


on switch mechanism. Note and record lead wire
terminal locations.
2. Loosen screw in split mounting clamp until mechanism
slides freely on enclosing tube, refer to Figure 6.
3. Remove small round head screw securing lower switch
mechanism to baffle plate, refer to Figure 7.
4. Slide switch mechanism off of enclosing tube. If mechanism
is to be reused, ensure that it is placed on a clean surface,
free of metallic particles that may be attracted to the
switch magnet.
Caution: Always handle the switch mechanisms about or around
the terminal block. Replacement switch mechanisms are
precision instruments which have been factory-calibrated
to operate with the level control specified. Extreme care
should be taken: 1) when handling the switch mechanism;
2) to assure that the magnet does not come in contact
with any magnetic materials; and, 3) that the switch mechanism is always placed on a clean, non-magnetic surface
free of metal particles which may be attracted to the
switch mechanism magnet. DO NOT attempt to make any
adjustments to switch mechanisms.

Baffle Plate Screw

Figure 7
Baffle Plate Screw

5. Loosen mounting screw so that switch frame will fit over


e-tube. Install switch mechanism by sliding it over the
enclosing tube. Slide mechanism down until the bottom of
the frame and terminal block are resting on the baffle
plate. The baffle plate should be resting on the hub of the
housing base.
6. Install and tighten baffle plate screw so that the switch
mechanism may not be separated from the baffle plate.
Tighten the mechanism mounting screw so that the mechanism is firmly clamped to the enclosing tube.
7. Swing magnet assembly in and out by hand, checking
carefully for any signs of binding.
8. Reattached supply-side wiring to the terminal block and
check switch function by varying liquid level in the vessel.

42-683 Electric Switch Mechanisms

2.2

Replacing Dry Contact Switches

2.2.1 Series B, C, D, F, O, Q, S, U, W and X

1. Disconnect control from power supply.


2. Disconnect switch leads from terminal block. Note and
record terminal connections of switch to be replaced.
3. Remove two mounting screws holding existing switch,
refer to Figure 8.
4. Remove existing switch and install replacement switch in
the same position, tightening mounting screws securely.

NOTE: For proper operation of the replacement switch, it must actuate in the middle portion of the pivoted magnets swing.

5. Check switch action and adjust as follows:


a. Slowly rotate the pivoted magnet by hand, back and
forth through its angle of swing, listening closely for the
actuating click of the switch in each direction.
b. Check to see if there is equal overtravel of magnet in its
swing after the switch click in either direction.
c. If switch actuation is not correct, change adjustment of
actuating screw using a 116" hexagon key wrench, refer to
Figure 8.
NOTE: If a single switch is being replaced on a DPDT mechanism,
lever of second switch must be depressed and held to allow
for the audible adjustment of new switch, as described above.

d. With new switch in adjustment, release lever of second


switch and perform fine-tuning of both switches to
provide simultaneous actuation (clicks).
6. Reconnect power supply and test switch action by varying liquid level in the vessel or by gently blowing down
float chamber.

Vibration Service Adjustment


Level controls are frequently used in applications where
vibration is encountered, such as on scrubbers or compressors. Switch mechanisms may require repositioning to
prevent unwanted magnet movement. This position is
usually best at right angles to the direction of vibration.
The direction of vibration may be determined by the
arrangement of connections to the vessel or the vessels
mounting method. Accordingly, the vibration will tend to
be in one direction only.
Upon determining the vibration direction, switch mechanism(s) may be rotated from an incorrect position (as
shown in Figure 9, illustration is shown as looking at a
control from above), to a correct position as follows:

Caution: Before attempting to remove a switch mechanism, be certain to pull disconnect switch or otherwise assure that
electrical circuit through control is de-energized.

Direction of
vibration

1. Disconnect control from power supply.


2. Loosen screw in split mounting clamp until mechanism
turns freely on enclosing tube, refer to Figure 6 on page 6.
3. Rotate entire mechanism and bottom baffle plate together
to the correct position.

Baffle plate

Caution: Be certain power supply wires retain some slack at new


position. Do not pull wires taut.

NOTE: Amount of rotation required will vary with each installation and
may not be as much as shown in illustration.

4. Check action of switch magnet at new position. When


magnet vibrates from side to side, instead of front to back,
correct position has been attained.
5. Tighten clamp screw on switch mechanism.
6. Reconnect power supply, and test switch action under
operating conditions.

Preventative Maintenance
Inspect switch mechanisms, terminals and connections
regularly. Proof test interval to be determined by application
requirements (required reliablity, operating conditions,
site requirements, etc.).

4.1

Inspect Switch Mechanisms, Terminals


and Connections
1. Dry contact switches should be inspected for excessive
wear on actuating lever or misalignment of adjustment
screw at point of contact between screw and lever. Such
wear can cause false switch actuating levels.
2. DO NOT operate your control with defective or maladjusted switch mechanisms.
3. Level controls may sometimes be exposed to excessive
heat or moisture. Under such conditions, insulation on
electrical wiring may become brittle, eventually breaking
or peeling away. The resulting bare wires can cause
short circuits.

NOTE: Check wiring carefully and replace at the first sign of brittle
insulation.

4. Vibration may sometimes cause terminal screws to loosen.


Check all terminal connections to be certain that screws
are tight.
NOTE: Spare switches should be kept on hand at all times.

Replacement Switch Mechanisms

6.0.1 Magnet strength

Switch mechanisms are provided with different strength magnets as determined by the characteristics of the level switch. A
red, red/yellow or yellow dot is visible on each magnet. When
ordering replacement switch mechanisms, be certain to determine the color dot on the magnet. For these types of switches, the tenth digit of the model number identifies the magnet
used on the control. The correct magnet dot color may be
chosen by finding the tenth digit of your model number at
the top of the chart. Any model numbers preceded with an
X are specially modified controls. Contact the factory for
replacement part numbers.

Field Installation Instructions

Caution: Before attempting work on any level control, be certain to


pull disconnect switch or otherwise assure that electrical
circuit through control is de-energized.

1. Remove switch cover by loosening fastening screw (or nut).


2. Drill a 14" diameter hole in cover at 78" up from bottom
edge, as shown.
3. Disconnect wiring from supply side of terminal strip on
switch mechanisms.
NOTE: Measure location of switch mechanism(s) on enclosing tube
and record for reference use during reassembly. (Measure
from top of enclosing tube to top of mounting clamp on switch
mechanism[s]).

4. Loosen screw in split mounting clamp of switch mechanism(s) until assembly moves freely on enclosing tube.
5. Remove small round head screw securing baffle plate to
switch mechanism.
6. Carefully lift off switch mechanism(s) and baffle plate.
Place on a clean surface, free of any metal particles that
may be attracted onto the magnet(s).
7. Install a new baffle plate assembly, with manual reset
mechanism, and carefully replace switch mechanism(s) in
reverse of steps 3 through 6 above.
8. Replace switch cover, lining up drilled hole with hole in
reset actuating mechanism. Do not tighten cover fastening
screw (or nut) at this point.
9. Thread reset plunger into actuating mechanism through
drilled hole in switch cover and thumb tighten securely.
Reposition switch cover as necessary to be certain it does
not bind reset plunger.
10. Tighten fastening screw (or nut) on switch cover and
check action of plunger to see that it moves freely.
11. Vary level in float chamber to test operation of manual
reset mechanism.
NOTE: Boiler level controls should not start firing equipment when
boiler water level has returned to normal (safe point) until reset
plunger has been manually depressed. If control starts firing
equipment, magnet stop arm on switch mechanism must be
bent out on switch frame 132" allowing magnet to swing further
from enclosing tube arm and into the field of the reset magnet.
Caution: If it is necessary to reposition manual reset plunger, entire
switch mechanism(s) must be loosened and rotated on
enclosing tube to desired position (refer to step 4). Do not
attempt to position plunger by twisting switch cover or
damage to switch mechanism(s) will result.

Switch and Housing Model Codes


The following charts identify the switch and housing model codes used with the buoyancy products. The
eighth, ninth and tenth digit combinations may be used to identify the type and number of switches,
number of contacts, switch magnet strength as well as housing type, size and options. The switch and
housing codes in bold are currently valid and available in combination with various buoyancy products.
The unbolded codes are no longer valid and should be replaced by the appropriate valid code. Mercury
switches are no longer available. All mercury switch mechanisms should be replaced by dry contact
mechanisms with the appropriate process temperature rating. See switch specifications, page 13.

Service Policy

Return Material Procedure

Owners of Magnetrol may request the return of a control


or any part of a control for complete rebuilding or replacement. They will be rebuilt or replaced promptly. Controls
returned under our service policy must be returned by
Prepaid transportation. Magnetrol will repair or replace
the control at no cost to the purchaser (or owner) other
than transportation if:

So that we may efficiently process any materials that are


returned, it is essential that a Return Material
Authorization (RMA) number be obtained from the
factory, prior to the materials return. This is available
through your Magnetrol local representative or
by contacting the factory. Please supply the following
information:

1. Returned within the warranty period; and


2. The factory inspection finds the cause of the claim
to be covered under the warranty.
If the trouble is the result of conditions beyond our control; or, is NOT covered by the warranty, there will be
charges for labor and the parts required to rebuild or
replace the equipment.
In some cases it may be expedient to ship replacement
parts; or, in extreme cases a complete new control, to
replace the original equipment before it is returned. If
this is desired, notify the factory of both the model and
serial numbers of the control to be replaced. In such
cases, credit for the materials returned will be determined
on the basis of the applicability of our warranty.

Reason for Return
Application

Any unit that was used in a process must be properly


cleaned in accordance with OSHA standards, before it is
returned to the factory.
A Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) must accompany
material that was used in any media.
All shipments returned to the factory must be by prepaid
transportation.
All replacements will be shipped F.O.B. factory.

No claims for misapplication, labor, direct or consequential damage will be allowed.
