Channel Level Gages
Channel Level Gages can be mounted flush against the outside surface of a reservoir with only a small amount of protrusion. Liquid level gages for flush mounting are used for a multitude of applications, such as on tanks, reservoirs, packaged hydraulic equipment, large steel mill pumps, hydraulic presses, and for any other application where it is desirable to indicate fluid levels.
These level gages are used to determine the liquid level inside a metal reservoir by visual observation of the level in a transparent sight. The clarity and condition of the liquid can also be checked. Models with a thermometer will show the temperature of the liquid as well.
Extremely sturdy and rigid, these gages come with glass sights mounted inside the steel channel shield to provide maximum protection against breakage. Visibility of the liquid level is excellent through the large sight opening. A reflector enhances the visibility of the liquid level. Liquid level markings can be added on request. Back mounting gages are used on tanks permitting access to the inside, in order to fasten the nuts on the mounting studs inserted in drilled holes in reservoirs. Front mounting gages are used on reservoirs which do NOT permit access to the inside, therefore, the tanks must have two tapped holes, ½-20, to receive the mounting studs, which are fastened from the outside.
