Fluid Tanks

Fluid Level

Tanks in industrial environments or machines contain operating fluids, lubricants and other crucial materials.

The level of these materials is detected with Level Sensors or special design
Reed Switch Chains and matching floats containing a magnet.

Coffee Maker

Water Level

A Reed Sensor integrated into the coffee maker housing is activated by a magnet
in a float, floating inside the detachable water tank.

When the water level sinks to a certain height an alarm is issued, no more coffee will be produced to protect the machine from running dry.

Dryer

Condensate Level

When drying wet clothes in a condenser
a huge amount of water remains in the condensate tank. The level of this condensate water is checked with Reed Technology, a warning is issued when the condensate reaches a critical level.

Some dryers have an integrated condensate pump to remove the condensate from the dryer. This pump is also controlled by the Reed Sensor or Level Sensor.
