Featured Product: M3326

When space is tight or when minimal tank intrusion is desired, the Madison M3326 subminiature float switch provides dependable performance in a compact package. With a footprint of less than 2” in height and less than 1” in diameter, the M3326 can be used for liquid level sensing in difficult installations such as shallow tanks or confined spaces. These float switches are ideal for food service and food processing equipment, chemicals, and medical equipment. Options* such as normally open/normally closed, universal thread or NPT fittings, polypropylene float/stem and NSF listing make the M3326 a versatile float switch for measuring acidic or alkaline liquids and for food contact. Madison advancements in reed switch-based technology can provide ultra-high resolution, very tight tolerances, shock and vibration resistance and turbulence dampening for special projects.

Case Study: Steam Cogeneration and Water Level Sensing

A Potentially Corrosive Relationship Between Elements and Equipment

Case Study: Steam Cogeneration and Water Level Sensing

Steam cogeneration, or CHP, is a highly efficient and environmentally friendly way to produce useful heat from electricity production.

However, operating conditions in a CHP plant can be challenging for the longevity of equipment and components. Water is at a constant 212˚F (100˚C) and mineral salts and dirt create a corrosive environment that shortens the useful life of equipment.

Reliable, durable steam pipe water level sensors are essential for uninterrupted service. If the sensors fail, the resulting service disruption can cause loss of revenue and dissatisfied customers. A major utility provider was experiencing forced outages and numerous corrective action calls within their plant footprint due to premature water sensor deterioration.
