Float Switches

We feature ATMI’s TUBA small diameter float switches & the SOBA EX ATEX certified float switch.



The TUBA float level switches are small diameter tubular floats that have been designed to fit tanks and cisterns having restricted access or narrow openings. As the liquid level reaches the float, the mechanical switch inside will tilt, thus closing or opening a circuit connected to an electrical panel. Thanks to its ± 20º switching angle, the TUBA float level switch ensures a very precise level measurement.

The TUBA float level switches can be installed in three different ways: fixed to a rod, vertically suspended on the cable with external ballasts, or horizontally mounted on the tank sides with a gland. Suitable for level detection of liquids in tanks, cisterns, reservoirs and others, such as pump automatic regulation and alarm level detection, TUBA is available in 1” and 1¼” diameters, allowing it to pass through the narrow openings usually found on the side walls of tanks.



The SOBA EX is an ATEX certified float switch ideal for hazardous environments 0, 1, 2 (gas) and 20, 21, 22 (dust). As the liquid level reaches the float, the mechanical switch inside the float will tilt, thus closing or opening a circuit connected to an electrical panel. The SOBA EX is equipped with an external adjustable resin ballast, and its ±25º differential angle ensures a precise level measurement.

SOBA EX has double waterproofing thanks to its high resistance housing. No maintenance is needed, thanks to its biconical shape that avoids clogging. Easy to install and easy to use, SOBA EX is an ecological float switch containing no mercury and no lead.

Applications include hazardous gas areas : solvents, hydrocarbons, alcohols, chemical and pharmaceutical products
