Efficiently Manage Liquid Level with Point Level Control
Ultrasonic Liquid Level Switches
Ultrasonic liquid level switches are used in a wide variety of applications to detect the location of level in a process or storage vessel. These switches can be used in virtually any liquid. A complete offering of materials and mounting configurations are available to meet your application needs.
Thermal Differential Level & Flow Switches
KENCO’s Thermal Differential Switches are designed for a wide range of flow and level applications. These switches can be used to direct either the overall liquid level or a liquid-liquid interface. They can also be used to detect a specific flow rate or flow/no flow condition in liquids and gasses.
KEFS Electric Float Switch
The KENCO Model KEFS uses a float to determine the presence or absence of liquid in a vessel at the process connection. The float arm assembly consists of a float at one end and a magnet at the other. As the level in the vessel rises, the float rises and the magnet falls. The magnet actuates a second magnet on the other side of the pressure boundary. This second magnet causes the switch to change state.
The pressure boundary contains no seals; it is a solid stainless steel barrier that passes a magnetic field, but no liquids. It is impossible for the process liquid to enter the switch enclosure through this barrier. The electrical contacts consist of a microswitch that can be either a single-pole, Double-throw (SPDT) or Double-pole, Double-throw configuration (DPDT). The SPDT Switch is available with either a 5 Amp or 8 Amp current load. The DPDT Switch is only available with a 4 Amp current load.
KPFS Pneumatic Float Switch
The KENCO Model KPFS uses a float to determine the presence or absence of liquid in a vessel at the process connection. The float arm assembly consists of a float at one end and a magnet at the other. As the level in the vessel rises, the float rises and the magnet falls. The magnet actuates a second magnet on the other side of the pressure boundary. This second magnet is the reactive component in the snap acting switch that opens and closes the pneumatic valve. Because of the nature of the design, adjustment is rarely, if ever needed. In the event that adjustment is needed, an easy to use adjustment screw is provided.

The Model KPFS is used to actuate pneumatic dump valves, such as the Model KDV Series Dump Valve, to control liquids in scrubbers, separators and other vessels. The pressure boundary contains no seals; it is a solid stainless steel barrier that passes a magnetic field, but no liquids. It is impossible for the process liquid to enter the switch enclosure through this barrier. The Model KPFS Pneumatic Float Switch can be ordered to have the pneumatic valve open when it senses a liquid level rising (-LR option) or open when it senses the liquid level falling (-LF option). A manual valve actuator is provided to open the valve manually, if desired.
KT Series Magnetostrictive Level Transmitter
The in-tank liquid level transmitter is a continuous multi-functional Magnetostrictive transmitter that provides product level, interface level, and temperature to the user via Analog (4-20mA) with HART®, Modbus RTU (Remote Terminal Unit) or DDA (Direct Digital Access). Magnetostrictive technology is one of the most accurate and repeatable level technologies available to date. Once the transmitter is installed and calibrated, there is no requirement for scheduled maintenance or recalibration.
Magna-Site™ Magnetic Level Gauge
The KENCO Magna-Site is a magnetic level gauge used to determine the volume of liquid contained within a tank. Because the Magna-Site eliminates the need for glass, high pressure applications and hazardous locations are protected from the danger of a chemical spill due to glass failure.
The KENCO Magna-Site utilizes three major components: the gauge housing chamber, the magnetic float, and the magnetic flag assembly (Indicator).
The gauge housing chamber is typically mounted adjacent to the side of the tank. It is constructed to withstand the same temperatures and pressures as the tank itself. It is equipped with the appropriate tank mounting connections for easy installation and to allow equalization of liquid level in tank and gauge.
K9900 Series Level Gauge
The patented K9900 Series Level Gauge features an innovative casting design which will simplify the installation process and eliminate other typical problems associated with gauge glass.

Sight Windows are an effective and economical way of viewing tank, pressure vessel, piping system interiors. They are also referred to as Sight Glasses and are often replaceable or removable. Fluid clarity, color, level and flow can be monitored through the window. Sight Windows can be mounted by bolting, welding or direct insertion into the end of the tank or pipe. Welding may require a radius pad that conforms to the pipe or curved vessels or a flat pad that mounts to a flat tank wall.
KSW SIGHT WINDOWS
KSW Threaded Sight Windows are a low cost solution for viewing liquids. The hexagon head body with a male NPT mounting connection allows for easy installation. Clear glass lens is hermetically sealed and fused to the metal body to ensure leak-proof service and eliminate concerns typically found with traditional gasket type sight window assemblies. The optical clarity of the glass lens transmits an accurate view of the liquid being viewed in the window. Lens is flush with the front face of the body which allows for easy cleaning and prohibits build up of dirt and debris normally associated with sight windows having a recessed lens. KENCO KSW sight windows reliably meet and exceed the requirements of most applications.
