FAQ: How can I ensure that turbulence will not affect my switch's performance?
Turbulence, which can be caused by a vibrating tank, intensive mixer agitation or surging of liquid during tank filling, can result in premature failure of both the switch and the relay, due to chattering. A very low-cost, reliable solution to this problem is the use of a slosh shield. This device is equipped with fluid and vent holes and surrounds the switch float to prevent erratic switch operation.
Madison stocks a complete selection of slosh shields for vertical and horizontal switches in stainless steel, polypropylene, PBT, brass or Kynar.
