L-40N Liquid Level Switches
Side and Top Mount
Corrosion Resistant Plastic with Optional Metal Pivot Pin
Polyphenylene Oxide (PPO) is suitable for acid and base solutions, pure
water, process water, sea water, filtered sewage, contaminated
groundwater. Noryl is not suitable for use in hydrocarbons, petroleum,
alcohol and related chemicals.
- The wetted surface of Model L-40 is entirely of Noryl (PPO) except for a small float support Pivot Pin.
support pivot pin is supplied in a variety of materials i.e. 316
Stainless Steel, Hastelloy C-276, Titanium, Tantalum and Teflon to meet
special chemical and operations environments.
- 10 times less sensitive from deposit and build-up of contaminants than sliding float models.
- Each unit can be supplied with a special made to order 1-1/4″ x 1/4″ x 1/2″ reducer bushing for through wall mounting.
- Output wire can be twisted pair 22 gauge or two conductor PVC heavy wall instrument cable.
- STANDARD – SPST reed switch for 120/240 VAC 50 Watt power or DC dry circuit for computer/PLC interface.
10% Glass reinforced Noryl (PPO) and 316 stainless steel pivot pin.

Dry Circuit Operating
Switch can interface with microprocessor based controllers and related dry circuits.
contacts have been tested with inductive relay and 30 amp motor
contactor drive coils at 120 VAC and 240 VAC to 500,000 operations
without failure. Maximum allowable volt amp (VA) rating of relay
operating coil — 8.0 VA or less.
Model L-40 employs magnetic coupling between float arm and switch body.
Magnetic particles can accumulate on and around magnetic housing which
may affect proper operation. Please conduct appropriate fluid magnetic
particle evaluation and operational tests prior to and during
installation and use.
