1.1 Principle of Operation
The design of MAGNETROL float-operated level switches
is based upon the principle that a magnetic field will penetrate non-magnetic materials such as 316 stainless steel.
The float moves a magnetic attraction sleeve within a nonmagnetic enclosing tube and actuates a switch mechanism.
The enclosing tube provides a pressure seal to the chamber
and therefore to the process.
HL
1.2 Operating Cycle
Figure 1
As the liquid level rises in the chamber (refer to Figure 1),
the float moves the magnetic attraction sleeve up within
the enclosing tube and into the field of the switch mechanism magnet. As a result, the magnet is drawn in tightly
to the enclosing tube causing the switch to trip, “making”
or “breaking” an electrical circuit. As the liquid level falls,
the float drops and moves the attraction sleeve out of the
magnetic field, releasing the switch at a predetermined
“low level” (refer to Figure 2). The tension spring ensures
the return of the switch in a snap action.

Piping
Figure 3 shows a typical piping installation of a
MAGNETROL Series 3 control to a pressure vessel. Level
decals on control identify the actuation levels for the bottom switch mechanism of a unit with three switches at
minimum specific gravity. To find the actuation levels for a
unit with one switch at different minimum specific gravities, refer to the charts in Actuation Levels, Steam Service
Ratings and Specific Gravities, Section 5.2.5, on page 24.
Shutoff

Max. 12"
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.
DO NOT INSULATE SWITCH MECHANISM

Typical Piping Arrangement
On controls equipped with pneumatic switch assemblies,
consult bulletin on mechanism furnished for air (or gas)
piping instructions. Refer to the chart on page 7 for
bulletin numbers for pneumatic switches.
2.4
Mounting
Caution: If equipment is used in a manner not specified by the
manufacturer, protection provided by the equipment may
be impaired.
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 3° of vertical. A 3° slant is noticeable by eye, but installation should be checked with a spirit level on top and/or
sides of float chamber.
46-624 Series 3 Liquid Level Switches ASME B31.1 Construction
5
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.
Caution: Operation of all buoyancy type level devices should be
done in such a way as to minimize the action of dynamic
forces on the float or displacer sensing element. Good
practice for reducing the likelihood of damage to the control is to equalize pressure across the device slowly.
2.5
Wiring
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 the equipment.
Screw
Set
Screw
NOTE: For supply connections in installations with ambient temperature up to +158 °F (+70 °C), use wire with a minimum rating
of +167 °F (+75 °C) as required by the process conditions.
Installations with ambient temperatures up to +176 °F (+80 °C)
require wire with a minimum rating of +185 °F (+85 °C) as
required by the process conditions. Use a minimum of 14
AWG wire for power and ground field wires.

Caution: Level controls are shipped from the factory with the
enclosing tube tightened and the middle set screw, on the
housing base, locked to the enclosing tube. Failure to
loosen the set screw prior to repositioning the conduit connection may cause the enclosing tube to loosen, resulting
in the possible leakage of the process liquid or vapor.

Series 3 controls are shipped with the conduit entry of
the switch housing placed 180° opposite to the tank configurations 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.
2. Switch housing may be rotated 360° to allow correct positioning of conduit outlet.

3. Tighten set screw(s) at base of switch housing.
4. Unscrew and remove switch housing cover. The threads
have been lubricated to facilitate removal.
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. On non-hazardous applications, flexible conduit may be
used between the control and the first junction box.
46-624 Series 3 Liquid Level Switches ASME B31.1 Construction
5. The switch terminals are located next to the conduit outlet
to facilitate wiring. Bring supply wires through conduit
outlet. Route extra wire around enclosing tube under the
baffle plate and connect them to the proper terminals.

6. Dress wiring to ensure no interference or contact with
actuation of switch, or replacement of switch housing
cover.
OBSERVE ALL APPLICABLE ELECTRICAL CODES
AND PROPER WIRING PROCEDURES.
Prevent moisture seepage into the enclosure by installing
approved seal-drain fittings in the conduit run leading into
the unit.
Caution: In hazardous areas, do not power the unit until the
conduit is sealed and the enclosure cover is screwed
down securely.
7. Replace housing cover.
8. If control has been furnished with an explosion proof or
moisture proof (gasketed) 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 that gasketed joint is
tight. A positive seal is necessary to prevent infiltration of
moisture-laden air or corrosive gasses into switch housings.

Switch Differential Adjustment
The standard differential of Series 3 float models with only
one switch mechanism may be field-adjusted. Adjustment
may be necessary if a wider differential needs to be set to
overcome switch chatter caused by the process.
The differential, or the amount of level travel between
“switch-on” and “switch-off ,” may be adjusted by
repositioning the lower jam nuts on the float stem.
This adjustment is different for high level and low level
controls. Refer to the appropriate section below for
adjustment instructions.
Caution: Maximum differential adjustment is 1 inch (25 mm).
3.1
Low Level Controls
On low level controls the switch trips on the lower actuation
point and resets on the higher actuation point. Widening
the differential will allow the switch to trip on the original
actuation point and reset at a later, or higher, point.

8. Measure the distance “D” from the top edge of the upper
jam nuts to the top of the float stem. Refer to Figure 8.
Record this measurement.
9. Loosen and remove upper jam nuts, guide washer, and
attraction sleeve.
10. Loosen and adjust lower jam nuts to the desired position.
Tighten lower jam nuts securely. Refer to Figure 8.
11. Replace attraction sleeve on stem.
12. Replace upper jam nuts and guide washer on the stem in
the position previously noted. Tighten upper jam nuts
securely. Refer to Figure 8.
NOTE: Using a new enclosing tube gasket when reassembling
enclosing tube to the chamber. Make certain that all gasket
surfaces are thoroughly cleaned to allow proper gasket
seating. Coat enclosing tube threads with “anti-seizing”
compound.
13. Replace enclosing tube, switch, and base on chamber. Screw
tube clockwise until tightened to 200–225 foot-pounds
of torque.
14. Rotate switch housing to correct position and tighten set
screw at base of switch housing. Refer to Figure 4 on
page 6.
15. Bring supply wires through conduit outlet. Follow steps 5
through 10 in Wiring, Section 2.5 on pages 6 and 7.
16. 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. If the unit still fails to function properly,
consult the factory.
3.2
High Level Controls
On high level controls the switch trips on the higher actuation point and resets on the lower actuation point.
Caution: On high level controls, widening the differential requires
raising the trip point a proportional amount. The reset
point will remain the same.
46-624 Series 3 Liquid Level Switches ASME B31.1 Construction
9
To widen the differential by raising the trip point, follow
steps 1 through 16 in Low Level Controls, Section 3.1,
pages 8–9).
Caution: After increasing gap setting, be certain to check for
proper operation of switch mechanism by raising and lowering float assembly. Magnet must “snap” cleanly with
additional float movement available after magnet snaps.
4.0
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. 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.
4.1
Recommended Practice
4.1.1 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.
4.1.2 Inspect Switch Mechanisms, Terminals, and
Connections Monthly
1. Dry contact 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 the Switch
Instruction Reference Bulletins chart on page 7 to find
appropriate bulletins 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 peeling away. The resulting “bare” wires can cause
false trip.
10
46-624 Series 3 Liquid Level Switches ASME B31.1 Construction
4. Vibration may sometimes cause terminal screws to loosen.
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 loosen at
connections causing leakage. Check lines and connections
carefully and repair or replace, if necessary.
NOTE: Spare switches should be kept on hand at all times.
4.1.3 Proof Test Procedure
(To be performed annually at a minimum)
1. Bypass the logic controller or take other action to avoid a
false trip.
2. Perform a detailed inspection of the unit inside and out
for physical damage that may impact the structural
integrity, and for evidence of environmental or process
leaks. Repair or replace the unit if needed.
3. Using a calibrated multimeter set to measure electrical
resistance (ohms), at the field connections measure and
record the resistances across the Common (C) and the
Normally Closed (NC) contacts, and the Common (C)
and the Normally Open (NO) contacts.
4. Change the process level to cause the switch mechanism to
change states.
5. Again, measure and record the resistances across the
Common (C) and the Normally Closed (NC) contacts,
and the Common (C) and the Normally Open (NO) contacts.
6. Ensure with the multimeter readings that the switch mechanism did in-fact change states. A closed switch contact
should measure less than 1 ohm, and an open contact
should measure greater than 5 megaohms.
7. Repeat steps 3 through 6 for all other sets of switch
contacts (if any).
8. Restore the installation to normal operation.

Inspection of the interior of the chamber is possible on
flanged cage models. To do this, the control head must be
removed to provide proper access to the chamber. This
procedure will assure that the head assembly is removed
and reinstalled properly.
Allow vessel to get to safe temperature and pressure before
opening the pressure boundary.
Power down all wiring to the unit.
Remove all wiring and conduit from the unit.
Remove flange bolts.
Prepare an area where the head assembly can be placed
such that it rests on the flange in its normal orientation
(two 2×4 boards placed across an open drum work well).
Refer to Figure 9.
Carefully lift the head assembly by holding the sides of the
flange. Maintain the head assembly as much as possible in
the vertical position.
NOTE: Care must be taken not to place side force on the float which
could bend the stem.
7. With the unit resting in its temporary fixture in an upright
position, it can now be inspected or repaired.
Caution: Do not place the unit on its side — this could result in
damage to the stem.

8. Conduct a check for float stem straightness as follows:
8.1 Remove the stem assembly including attraction sleeve
from the head assembly by removing the two screws
holding the stop strap to the bottom of the flange.
See Figure 10 for assembly schematic.
8.2 Check the stem straightness by aligning the stem
against a straight edge. Stems that are bent in excess of
1
⁄8 inch over any 6 inch length should not be used
in this condition. Replace any bent stems. See
Replacement Parts, Section 5.3 beginning on page 25.
8.3 Ensure that the components in the stem assembly are
in good condition and surfaces are clear of potential
obstructions. The stem assembly is reinstalled by
securing the stop strap to the flange. Ensure that the
attraction sleeve moves freely through the enclosing
tube and that the stem assembly surfaces are smooth.
NOTE: Care must be taken during the straightness check to be certain that the attraction sleeve is not removed from the stem
and jam nuts settings are not changed.

9. In the container that the unit is set on, raise the liquid
level sufficiently to lift the float and trip the switch mechanism. Inspect inside of chamber for any obstructions or
scale buildup. If excessive buildup is present, the interval
between inspections should be shortened. Remove old gasket such that mating flange surfaces are completely clean.
Position new gasket on chamber flange before replacing
the head assembly.
NOTE: The float is restricted from moving laterally by the chamber, in
the test configuration the float and stem can move further off
center than possible under normal operation. Avoid excess
movement in this lateral direction during the test. If switch
trips, the unit may be reassembled.
10. Replace the assembly onto the float cage keeping it as
vertical as possible. Carefully lower the assembly into the
chamber making sure that the stem does not become bent
during installation. Refer to Figure 9 on page 12.
11. Tighten flange bolts per torque values as indicated in table below.
12. Attach wiring and connect power supply as described in
Wiring, Section 2.5 on page 6.

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:
• Fuses may be blown
• Reset button(s) may need resetting
• Power switch may be open
• Controlled equipment may be faulty
• 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.
4.2.1 Check Switch Mechanism

8.
Pull switch or otherwise disconnect power to the control.
Remove switch housing cover.
Disconnect power wiring from switch assembly.
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.
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.
If switch magnet assembly swings freely and mechanism
still fails to actuate, check installation of control to be
certain it is within the specified 3° of vertical.
Examine the switch closely as described in Inspect Switch
Mechanisms, Terminals, and Connections Monthly, Section
4.1.2, step 1 on page 10. Check continuity of switch with
ohmmeter. If switch does not function properly, replace it
immediately.
If switch mechanism is operating satisfactorily, proceed to
check sensing unit.
NOTE: Spare switches should be kept on hand at all times.

equipped with pneumatic switch mechanisms.
4. Disconnect wiring from supply side of switch mechanism(s)
and remove electrical conduit or operating medium line
connections to switch housing.
5. Perform system shutdown to relieve pressure from float
chamber of control and allow unit to cool.
6. Close shutoff valves (if equipped) to isolate control from
vessel. Drain off liquid in chamber if necessary
7. On installations without shutoff valves, relieve pressure
from vessel and drain off liquid head above control
mounting level.
NOTE: Control chamber, connections, and pipe lines need not be
removed from vessel or boiler.
8. Remove switch housing assembly by loosening enclosing
tube hex nut, which is located immediately below housing
base. Refer to Figure 4 on 6.
9. With switch housing assembly removed, inspect attraction
sleeve(s) and inside of enclosing tube for excessive corrosion
or solids buildup, which could restrict movement, preventing sleeve(s) from reaching field of switch magnet(s).
10. If differential has been changed in the field by repositioning the lower jam nuts on the float stem, check tightness
and position of the jam nuts.
11. Check float to be certain it is buoyant in the liquid (float
chamber or vessel must have adequate liquid level). If float
is determined to be filled with liquid, or it is collapsed, it
must be replaced immediately.

Caution: Do not attempt to repair a float. See Replacement Parts,
Section 5.3 beginning on page 25.
If all components in the control are in operating condition,
the trouble is likely 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.
4.3
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.
Caution: Operation of all buoyancy type level devices should be
done in such a way as to minimize the action of dynamic
forces on the float or displacer sensing element. Good
practice for reducing the likelihood of damage to the
control is to equalize pressure across the device very
slowly.

5.2.5 Actuating Levels*, Steam Service Ratings and Specific gravities
For float operated units, minimum specific gravities and actuating levels vary depending upon the
material of construction code used with the unit.
NOTE: The minimum specific gravities and actuating levels shown are for single switch units with 1" process
connections only. Minimum specific gravities and levels will change for multistage units and levels
will change for units with 11⁄2 or 2" process connections. Consult factory for these changes.
*The level decals on the control identify the actuation levels for units with three switches at the corresponding minimum specific gravity of the three switch configuration.

Service Policy
Return Material Procedure
Owners of MAGNETROL 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 MAGNETROL’s 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.
