Introduction
Displacer actuated external cage liquid level switches are
designed for service pressures up to 5000 psig (345 bar)
and liquids with specific gravities of 0.40 and above.

1.1
5
The design of displacer operated level switches is based
upon the principle that a magnetic field will not be affected
by non-magnetic materials such as 316 stainless steel. In
this case, the displacer moves a magnetic attraction sleeve
within a non-magnetic enclosing tube and actuates a magnetic switch mechanism. The enclosing tube provides a
pressure seal to the chamber and therefore to the process.
1
1.2
Operating Cycle
The weight of the displacer ➀ is supported by the spring.
Rising liquid level imparts buoyancy forces on the displacer
allowing the spring to compress. The attraction sleeve ➁
attached to the spring, moves upward into the field of a
permanent magnet ➂. The movement of the magnet
toward the sleeve causes the switch ➃ to actuate. A nonmagnetic barrier tube ➄ provides a static pressure boundary
between the switch mechanism and the displacer assembly.
As the liquid level falls, the displacer lowers, moving the
attraction sleeve out of the magnetic field of the switch
mechanism. This allows the switch to again change position
and to break or make. See Figures 1 and 2.

Unpacking
Unpack the instrument carefully. Inspect all units for
damage. Report any concealed damage to carrier within
24 hours. Check the contents of the packing slip and
purchase order. Check and record the serial number for
future reference when ordering parts.
On chambered units, remove the shipping strap and wire
assembly holding the displacer in place. This assembly
must be removed through the bottom chamber connection
before start-up.
Caution: If reshipping to another location, the displacer must again
be secured using the same strap and wire assembly.

Critical alarm function
It is recommended that for critical alarm functions, an
additional level switch be installed as a high–high or low–
low level alarm for maximum protection.
2.3
Conduit Outlet
Figure 3 shows a typical piping installation of a displacer
control to a pressure vessel. An instruction tag secured to
the control gives dimensional data on switch actuating levels referenced from center line of upper side tank connection. Position control so that actuating levels correspond
with the desired liquid level trip points in process vessel.

Valve
Use pipe of sufficient strength to support the control. If
necessary, provide a stand or hanger to help support its
weight. All piping should be straight and free of “low
spots” or “pockets” so that lower liquid line will drain
towards the vessel and upper vapor line will drain toward
the control. Shut-off valves are recommended for installation between the vessel and the control. If control is to be
used with a low temperature liquid (one which will “boil”
in the float chamber if outside heat is absorbed), the
chamber and piping should be insulated. Such boiling in
the chamber will cause false level indications.

Mounting
Caution: This instrument is intended for use in Installation
Category II, Pollution Degree 2
Adjust piping as required to bring control to a vertical position. Magnetrol® controls must be mounted within three
degrees of vertical in all directions. A three degree slant is
noticeable by eye, but installation should be checked with a
spirit level on top and/or sides of float chamber.
Controls should be mounted as close to the vessel as possible. This will result in a more responsive and accurate level
change in the control. Liquid in a long line may be cooler
and more dense than liquid in the vessel causing lower level
indication in the control than actual level in the vessel.

Wiring
Caution: All displacer actuated units are shipped from the factory
with the enclosing tube tightened and the switch housing
set screw locked to the enclosing tube. Failure to loosen
the set screw prior to repositioning the supply and output
connections may cause the enclosing tube to loosen,
resulting in possible leakage of the process liquid or vapor.

Housing Set Screws
Displacer actuated controls are shipped with the conduit
entry of the switch housing placed 180° opposite the tank
connections to simplify installation in most cases. If this
configuration is appropriate to the installation, proceed to
Step 4 to begin wiring the unit. If another configuration is
desired, the switch housing can be easily rotated by first
following Steps 1, 2, and 3.
NOTE: A switch or circuit breaker shall be installed in close proximity
to equipment and within easy reach of operator. It shall be
marked as the disconnecting device for equipment.

NOTE: For supply connections in installations with ambient temperature up to +70° C, use wire with a minimum rating of +75° C as
required by the process conditions. Installations with ambient
tempertures up to +80° C require wire with a minimum rating of
+85° C as required by the process conditions. Use a minimum
of 14 AWG wire for power and ground field wires.
NOTE: On high temperature applications (above +250° F [+121° C]
in float chamber), high temperature wire should be used
between control and first junction box located in a cooler area.
NOTE: Housing must be grounded via protective ground screw in

7. Replace housing cover.
8. If control has been furnished with an explosion proof or
moisture proof switch housing, it must be sealed at the
conduit outlet with a suitable compound or non-hardening
sealant to prevent entrance of air.
9. Test switch action by varying liquid level in float chamber.
NOTE: If switch mechanism fails to function properly, check vertical
alignment of control housing and consult installation bulletin
on switch mechanism furnished.
10. Check cover to base fit to be certain gasketed joint is tight.
A positive seal is necessary to prevent infiltration of moisture laden air or corrosive gasses into switch housing.

Preventive Maintenance
Periodic inspections are a necessary means to keep your
level control in good working order. This control is a safety
device to protect the valuable equipment it serves.
Therefore, a systematic program of “preventive maintenance” must be implemented when the control is placed
into service. If the following sections on “what to do” and
“what to avoid” are observed, your control will provide
reliable protection of your equipment for many years.
3.1
What to do
3.1.1 Keep control clean
Be sure the switch housing cover is always in place on the
control. This cover is designed to keep dust and dirt from
interfering with switch mechanism operation. In addition,
it protects against damaging moisture and acts as a safety
feature by keeping bare wires and terminals from being
exposed. Should the housing cover or any seals become
damaged or misplaced, obtain a replacement immediately.
46-635 External Cage Displacer Actuated Liquid Level Switches

3.1.2 Inspect switch mechanisms, terminals, and
connections monthly
1. Switches should be inspected for excessive wear on actuating lever or misalignment of adjustment screw at point of
contact between screw and lever. Such wear can cause false
switch actuating levels. See switch mechanism bulletin
supplied with control should switch adjustment or replacement be necessary.
2. DO NOT operate your control with defective or maladjusted switch mechanisms (refer to bulletin on switch
mechanisms furnished for service instructions.)
3. Level controls may sometimes be exposed to excessive heat
or moisture. Under such conditions, insulation on electrical
wiring may become brittle, eventually breaking or pealing
away. The resulting “bare” wires can cause short circuits.
Check wiring carefully and replace at the first sign of brittle
insulation.
4. Vibration may sometimes cause terminal screws to work
loose. Check all terminal connections to be certain that
screws are tight.
5. On units with pneumatic switches, air (or gas) lines subjected to vibration, may eventually crack or become loose
at connections causing leakage. Check lines and connections carefully and repair or replace, if necessary.
NOTE: As a matter of good practice, spare switches should be kept
on hand at all times.
3.1.3 Inspect entire unit periodically
Isolate control from vessel. Raise and lower liquid level to
check for switch contact and reset.
3.2
What to avoid
1. Never leave switch housing cover off the control longer
than necessary to make routine inspections.
2. Never place a jumper wire across terminals to “cut-out”
the control. If a “jumper” is necessary for test purposes, be
certain it is removed before placing control into service.
3. Never attempt to make adjustments or replace switches
without reading instructions carefully. Certain adjustments
provided for in level controls should not be attempted in
the field. When in doubt, consult the factory or your local
representative.
4. Never use lubricants on pivots of switch mechanisms.
A sufficient amount of lubricant has been applied at the
factory to ensure a lifetime of service. Further oiling is
unnecessary and will only tend to attract dust and dirt
which can interfere with mechanism operation.

Reference Information
4.1
Troubleshooting
Usually the first indication of improper operation is failure
of the controlled equipment to function, i.e., pump will
not start (or stop), signal lamps fail to light, etc. When
these symptoms occur, whether at time of installation or
during routine service thereafter, check the following
potential external causes first.
a. Fuses may be blown.
b. Reset button(s) may need resetting.
c. Power switch may be open.
d. Controlled equipment may be faulty.
e. Wiring leading to control may be defective.
If a thorough inspection of these possible conditions fails
to locate the trouble, proceed next to a check of the
control’s switch mechanism.
4.1.1 Check switch mechanism
1. Pull disconnect switch or otherwise disconnect power to
the control.
2. Remove switch housing cover.
3. Disconnect power wiring from switch assembly.
4. Swing magnet assembly in and out by hand to check carefully for any sign of binding. Assembly should require
minimal force to move it through its full swing.
5. If binding exists, magnet may be rubbing enclosing tube.
If magnet is rubbing, loosen magnet clamp screw and shift
magnet position. Retighten magnet clamp screw.
6. If switch magnet assembly swings freely and mechanism
still fails to actuate, check installation of control to be
certain it is within the specified three degrees of vertical.
Use spirit level on side of enclosing tube in two places, 90°
apart. Refer to Figure 3 on page 5.
7. Check microswitch continuity with ohmmeter. If switch is
damaged, replace it immediately
8. If switch mechanism is operating satisfactorily, proceed to
check sensing unit.
46-635 External Cage Displacer Actuated Liquid Level Switches

4.1.2 Check sensing unit
1. Check to be certain liquid is entering float chamber.
A valve may be closed or piping plugged.
2. With liquid in chamber, proceed to check level sensing
action by removing switch housing assembly and
enclosing tube.
Caution: Unit must be normalized to atmospheric pressure before
removing enclosing tube.
3. Inspect attraction sleeve and inside of enclosing tube for
excessive corrosion or solids buildup which could restrict
movement, preventing sleeve from reaching field of magnet.
4. Never change the settings of the jam nuts which position
the attraction sleeve.
5. If control has a flanged cage, remove parting flange. Check
spring and displacer assembly for freedom of movement.
Check for collapsed or liquid filled displacer. If displacer is
determined to be filled or collapsed, contact the factory.

4.1.3 Check complete unit
Reassemble unit. Reconnect power supply and carefully
actuate switch mechanism manually (using a non-conductive tool) to determine whether controlled equipment will
operate.
Caution: With electrical power on, care should be taken to avoid
contact with switch leads and connections at terminal
block.
If all components in the control are in operating condition, the trouble must be (and should be) located external
to the control. Repeat inspection of external conditions
previously described.
NOTE: If difficulties are encountered which cannot be identified,
consult the factory or your local representative for assistance.
A complete description of the trouble should be provided
along with information concerning your piping and mounting
arrangement, plus a description of your operating sequence.
Sketches or photographs showing the installation are also
beneficial.
When communicating about your control, be certain to
always specify the complete model and serial numbers.

Service Policy
Return Material Procedure
Owners of MAGNETROL controls may request the
return of a control or any part of a control for complete
rebuilding or replacement. They will be rebuilt or
replaced promptly. Controls returned under our service
policy must be returned by Prepaid transportation.
MAGNETROL will repair or replace the control at no cost
to the purchaser (or owner) other than transportation if:
So that we may efficiently process any materials that are
returned, it is essential that a “Return Material
Authorization” (RMA) number be obtained from the
factory, prior to the material’s return. This is available
through a MAGNETROL local representative or by
contacting the factory. Please supply the following
information:
1. Returned within the warranty period; and
2. The factory inspection finds the cause of the claim
to be covered under the warranty.
If the trouble is the result of conditions beyond our control; or, is NOT covered by the warranty, there will be
charges for labor and the parts required to rebuild or
replace the equipment.
In some cases it may be expedient to ship replacement
parts; or, in extreme cases a complete new control, to
replace the original equipment before it is returned. If
this is desired, notify the factory of both the model and
serial numbers of the control to be replaced. In such
cases, credit for the materials returned will be determined
on the basis of the applicability of our warranty.
