Float damage is one of the most common causes of incorrect readings in magnetic level gauges. The problem is so common that some manufacturers have even installed alarms to warn users of float failure.
But one simple design change can actually prevent the most common cause of float failure -- damage from the welded joint at the side of the float chamber.
Smarter design to prevent float damage
Float failures almost always occur at a weld or the heat-affected zone of a weld.
To minimize chamber breakage and prevent float damage, Jogler uses extruded outlets to weld branch connections on its magnetic level gauges. This single design change prevents the most common cause of float damage and failure. Every chamber is designed to ANSI B31.1 and B31.3 specifications.
Jogler also uses custom “deep-drawn” float halves, allowing the float to be constructed with only one weld. This reduces the likelihood of stress cracking and float failure.
Jogler floats are also designed with 75g minimum of extra buoyancy to prevent “hanging up” or sticking in chambers with slight obstructions or heavy fouling.
Retrofitting to improve existing gauges
Even if you aren’t using Jogler JMG-series magnetic level gauges, Jogler will retrofit floats and transmitters to help improve the performance of your existing gauges. In fact, Jogler will retrofit floats for any manufacturer's magnetic level gauge! We have shipped more than 200 to date.
