Ultra Reliable High / Low Water Boiler Alarm Switches Announced
Time-Proven Interlocking Magnet Design is Also Ideal for Fuel Cutouts; Unaffected by Heat, Vibration, Loss of Electrical Power
STRONGSVILLE, OH —October 2, 2017 — Clark-Reliance® Corporation has announced a new family of level switches for boiler and tank applications. The new Reliance® Levalarm® Gold level switches provide the ultimate in secure, reliable operation for critical high or low water alarms or for fuel cutouts. The switches’ design represents a major step forward in reliability, employing a positive interlocking magnet operation proven for over 28 years in Clark-Reliance’s Jerguson® level switches. The switches’ repelling magnet design allows them to be completely unaffected by heat, vibration, or loss of electrical power, a first for float-type switches for this application.
The new Reliance Levalarm Gold level switches are available in three models for pressure up to 1000 PSI (69 Bar) MAWP. Their “drop-in” design requires no adjustments to commission, a benefit over previous level switches which required tedious on-site adjustments prior to going on-line. All models are approved by the following agencies: CSA, FM (7710 Standard), and UL (353 Standard).
The new switches are part of a broad offering of Reliance level switches for low or high water level on boiler and tank use, including probe-type level switches and a retrofit kit to convert old float switch designs to probe operation.
The Clark-Reliance Corporation is a world leader in boiler level and process level indication and control. The company’s well-known brands constitute the broadest line of level instrumentation: Jerguson® liquid level gages and valves, Jacoby-Tarbox® sight flow indicators, Reliance® boiler level controls, Magne-Sonics® level measurement and control products, Ernst Flow Industries and Clark Steam Specialties. Additionally, Clark-Reliance manufacturers Anderson® Separators, HYCOA transfer valves and duplex lube oil filtration systems, filters, National Filtration Systems® engineered fuel gas filtration / separation systems. Equipment from Clark’s Oil Filtration Systems product line is used to clean and dry lube oil, transformer oil, and fuel oils as well as remove varnish from lube oil used for rotating equipment. Recently acquired, Enervac specializes in transformer oil and SF6 gas purification systems.
Clark-Reliance is celebrating over 133 years of boiler knowledge this year, as its roots go back to the Reliance Gauge Column Company founded in 1884.
