LEVETATOR

   
 

This is by far the most popular float based water level indicator.  You will find Levetator installed all over the world. Popular in Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Pacific Islands, Middle East, Central America and USA.

 
  Features   How does LEVETATOR work ?  
 
  True reading - Levetator shows the actual water level. What you see is what you have.
  Simplicity - Just a simple float/weight/pulley system
  Easy to install -All necessary items (template, instructions and fixings) are provided to make it easy for the handyman to mount the Levetator on the tank roof
  Reliability - Year in, year out, the Levetator water level gauge provides reliable service thanks to quality materials and large free-running pulleys
  Standard kit for tanks to 3m - Easy to modify to any tank height
  Fire resistant option - Stainless steel wire and brass pulleys are used.
 

The weighted float and indicator are connected to the counterweight by separate cords, each cord running over a pair of pulleys. When the float is half-immersed everything is balanced. Rising liquid level lifts the float up, the counterweight moves down, and the indicator keeps pace with the float. Falling liquid levels causes the weighted float to pull the counterweight up, and again, the indicator keeps pace with the float. At all times the indicator matches the liquid level exactly.

LIQUIDATOR

   
 

Operating on the same principle as the Levetator, the Liquidator tank level indicator uses an external guide tube. The indicator slides up and down on the outside of the tube and the counterweight is contained inside it. Only the float is in contact with the liquid.

 
  Features   Level indicator for chemicals and water tanks !  
 
  Other liquids than water
  True reading - Whether water or chemical, the true-reading Liquidator eliminates possibility of confusion by employees. What you see is what you have. Graduations can be marked on or beside the guide tube for accurate measurement.
  Exposed sites -"Captive" on the guide tube, the diecast aluminium indicator isn't bothered by wind or other disturbances.
  Industrial tanks - Ideal for fire protection water storage tanks. Stainless steel wire is available as an optional alternative to polyester cord.
  Standard kit for tanks to 3m - Easy to modify to any tank height.
  Fire resistant option - Stainless steel wire and brass pulleys are used.
 

Sodium silicate, waste oil, waste water, effluent, molasses, hydrochloric acid, phosphoric acid, etc. Liquidator liquid level indicators are often used on fertiliser storage tanks and swimming pool hypo and backwash tanks.
 

Note:

Liquidator tank level indicators are supplied complete except for guide tube. Guide tube can either be 50mm square x 1.6mm thick galv. steel tube or 50NB DWV plastic pipe (56mm outside diam.), both of which are readily available from hardware stores, plumbing suppliers, etc

Like all the other water level gauges described here, it works on the tried and true float/weight/pulley system.
The weighted float and indicator are connected to the counter-weight suspended inside the vertical pipe with stainless steel wires running over pulleys. Rising water level lifts the float up, the counterweight moves down, and the indicator, sliding on the outside of the pipe, keeps pace with the float. Vice-versa for falling water level. At all times the indicator matches the liquid level exactly. Durable Aluminum die  castings, stainless steel axles and fastenings, marine grade Delrin pulleys. Level Devil is built to last
