SWI L505 Series | Dip Tape Magnetic Float Visual Level Indicator

Description

The L505 is a simple and economical dip tape level indicator designed for quick, continuous readings in remote and mobile storage tanks. The dip tape level indicator requires no power for operation and provides accurate visual level indication within 1/16”. Available construction materials include a brass/Buna-N combination and an all stainless steel option in a variety of threaded mounting sizes. Measuring lengths range from 6” to 6’ (15.24 cm to 1.8 m) in either customary, metric, or customary/metric combination steel tapes.

Principles of Operation

The sliding steel tape magnetically interlocks with the level position of the float. Level measurement is obtained by sliding the dip tape from the stem tube and locating the calibration mark where the interlock is felt. The float and stem make contact with the liquid, but the tape remains separate and clean. When the level indicator is not in use, it is safely sealed within the tube by a protective screw cap.
