Announcing Madison's new miniature continuous float level sensor

Announcing Madison's new miniature continuous float level sensor Accurate measurement of liquid volumes at any point in a container is critical for many commercial and industrial processes. Reducing process variability results in less waste, higher quality and reduced cost, and can make a big difference in profitability for OEMs.

Madison's continuous float level sensors offer all the advantages of reed switch based technology, now available in a ruggedized, miniature version for applications with a small tank footprint.

Madison’s C4954-xxxxx miniature continuous float level sensors provide feedback that is used to achieve precise fluid level detection at any point in the tank. As part of a feedback loop, the linear sensor output can also be used to adjust metering pumps or flow valves to maintain predictable process control.

New Madison White Paper: Liquid level sensors for harsh environments

Common harsh environmental commercial applications for sensors include offshore oil rigs and fracking, hydraulic systems for industrial power systems and steam co-generation plants.

Common harsh environmental commercial applications for sensors include offshore oil rigs and fracking, hydraulic systems for industrial power systems and steam co-generation plants (shown above).

Liquid level sensors have to operate in extreme conditions. Picture a holding tank on a drilling rig in the North Sea with temperatures dropping well below zero. Or, imagine the bilge tank in a shipping freighter, which contains the remnants of the industrial fluids and debris as it rolls through heavy seas. How about hot reactor fluids in a nuclear power plant? Those emergency fuel tanks? They could be cooking in the heat of an Arizona afternoon.

In commercial and industrial applications with harsh environments, it is vital to know the level of critical fluids or to know when to respond to or change mechanical functions based on changes in fluid level. Many times, the dependability and life of a sensor is critical to equipment operation and public safety.

D2P Trade Show Wrap-Up

The Madison TeamMadison Company recently participated in two Design2Part trade shows, where high-quality suppliers met face-to-face to demonstrate new technologies and forge new partnerships.

Our first stop was in Grapevine, TX at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center. The Madison team spent two days meeting with many fellow engineers and manufacturers. Many curious attendees stopped by to ask if Madison products are made in America. We proudly informed them that Madison has been manufacturing liquid level sensors in Connecticut since 1959!

Our next stop was Design-2-Part Southern New England, held at the Mohegan Sun Exposition Center in Uncasville, CT.

The Madison Team The Madison team had terrific time showcasing our own ultra-high resolution liquid level sensor designs to many fellow engineers and manufacturers. Traffic was excellent over the course of the show. We met with many attendees interested in our fluid sensing solutions manufactured just a short drive down I-95 in Branford, CT.

Whether or not you had the opportunity to attend either trade show, we'd love to discuss your liquid level sensing application. Please visit: www.madisonco.com/contact-madison.
