Magnetic level technologies

Unparalleled technology with uncompromising standards. In 2001, Orion Instruments set a course to raise the standards by which magnetic level indicators (MLIs) are viewed. As an AMETEK company whose level and flow solutions have been trusted worldwide for more than 80 years — Orion’s products are engineered and manufactured under the same strict and unyielding standards.

A Magnetic Level Indicator (MLI) consists of 3 major components
- Chamber
- Float
- Indicator

How It Works
An MLI chamber is securely mounted in-line to a process vessel. A magnetic float, contained within the chamber, tracks the surface of the liquid as the level rises and falls. A flag or shuttle-style indicator is actuated by the float’s magnetic field, providing a high-visibility level representation. Switches, transmitters, and other accessories can be added as an enhancement to create a total level control solution.
