The K-TEK MS50 consists of latching reed switches totally enclosed in a stainless steel chamber (other materials available) and a float containing a magnet in which the switches will detect. The sensing element (chamber) and the float are normally inserted into the tank through a top process connection and can be mounted to the tank via flange, if desired. However, the unit can usually be mounted via a single 2" MNPT process connection. In addition, the float can generally be installed thought the same 2" process connection. A stilling well may be required if the process liquid is in a turbulent state. The MS50 will provide for the detection of start/stop trip points of either total or interface level in virtually any vessel. These trip points can be used for alarms or to activate a pump motor starter relay.
