SOBA - Level Regulator with External Ballast

SOBA - Level Regulator with External Ballast

The SOBA is a level regulator equipped with an external adjustable resin ballast. As the liquid level reaches the regulator, the mechanical switch inside will tilt, thus closing or opening a circuit connected.

Level regulator with external ballast - SOBA



This level regulator is designed for charged liquids. When the liquide reaches  the regulator, the pear tilts and the mechanical contact will close or open the circuit, thus controlling the stop or the starting of a pump or an alarm.

If  two floats are used, one operating as a low level, the other as a high level, it is also possible to regulate severals levels.

The SOBA level regulator are equipped with an external loaded resin ballast 250 g, adjustable on the cable, which facilitates the rotation point of the level sensor and allows it to work in a wide range of densities.

Thanks to its +/- 25º switching angle, the SOBA ensures a very precise level measurement. The device can also be used in high or low alarm (overfill protection or protection against idling).

No wear, no maintenance! In wastewater pumping stations, in groundwater or irrigation, in fact, in most level control applications, this float is the ideal solution.
