Fuel/Oil/Kerosene Level Sensor, Horizontal, PTFA0100 US$104.00

Fuel/Oil/Kerosene Level Sensor, Horizontal, PTFA0100

Horizontal Fuel and Oil Level Sensor

This is a Celduc PTFA0100 liquid level sensor whose operation is based on the status of a reed switch which can be opened or closed (depending on its placement in the container) as the level of liquid moves the float at its end. The reed contact is completely isolated from the liquid; the one moving part (the float arm) has a magnet embedded in it to activate the switch.

This sensor is recommended for fuels, heavy oils and combustibles. See the PTFA3415 for a similar sensor that can be used in potable liquids and certain acids.

Combatibile Liquids

This sensor is made from 30% glass-filled Nylon 6 and can be used in the following liquids:
  • Fuels
  • Engine oil
  • Kerosene
  • Lubricating oil
  • Mineral oil
  • Vegetable oil
It is not compatible with most acids or methylene chloride. It does have acceptable resistance to water, but the PTFA3415 is recommended for water use.
