KES Oil Level Switch


Operating Principle:
KES,Oil,Level,Switch,Kenco,EngineeringOil level switches are designed as a safety device for the stationary engine or compressor. The oil level switch monitors the oil in the crankcase. The level within the crankcase directly corresponds with the oil level in the oil level switch housing. The engine or compressor constantly consumes the oil from the crankcase. If the oil level in the crankcase drops past the designated level, the switch will trip sending an alarm.


  • Stationary engines and compressors

  • Mechanical lubricators

  • Pumps


  • Protects against lubrication failure

  • Group B explosion proof certification for hydrogen gas atmosphere

  • Switch mechanism fully removable without draining oil

  • Easy view convex sight window

  • Direct mount adapters eliminate equalizing problems and reduce installation costs

  • Oil level switches for synthetic oil applications now available
