Bilge switches are a versatile sensor used to provide level sensing in the holds or lower levels in commercial vessels and ships. They are also used in industrial sumps and containment areas.
The built in shield protects the float switch from trash, floating debris, or other physical interference that could prevent reliable operation.
Typical uses include automatic pump control and to provide contact closures for alarm panels that monitor voids, shaft alleys and other hard to reach sump areas.
Available with optional mechanical self-checking test feature.
Pictured is one of our standard models, but as always, our Bilge Switches can be customized to fit your applications needs.
