Elesa and Ganter offers new column level indicators

Elesa and Ganter presents a wide range of standard elements in engineering plastics and metal for equipment and machinery for the construction and building industry which operate in particularly unfavorable conditions and sometimes in explosive atmosphere. High or low temperatures, high humidity, high pressure and contact with different chemical substances are some of the most common conditions of use. Therefore, reliable components in functionality, quality and performance are essential and of the utmost importance.

One such product range is accessories for hydraulic systems which is available in a variety of production materials: plastic, aluminium, brass, zinc-plated steel or stainless steel with NBR synthetic rubber, FPM or FKM (type Viton) to withstand different liquid/oil temperatures.

Plugs, filler breather caps and oil level indicators are available with different types of threads: ISO-Metric, GAS-BSP and UNC-UNF or NPT for the American market
HCX-PT and HCV-E oil level indicators are made of transparent technopolymer with white lacquered aluminium contrast screen, housed in the external rear slot, ensuring the best protection from direct contact with fluid. HCX-PT column level indicator is distinguished by the SUPER-technopolymer protection frame (material that can provide mechanical and thermal properties far superior to the traditional polymers) that absorbs accidental shocks transmitting them directly onto the wall of the reservoir. The indicator is available with or without incorporated thermometer, screws, nuts and washers made of zinc-plated steel, AISI 303 stainless steel or SUPER-technopolymer. In addition, special openings in the protection frame provide maximum fluid level visibility even from side positions. HCV-E column level indicator, in addition to the visual control, generates an electric signal when the oil level drops to a minimum. Standard executions are available with a built-in relay with two conductors (NO and NC versions) at the output or three connectors (SW version). Thanks to the side output of the connector, HCV-E level indicator allows to minimise the level of intervention of the sensor because assembled at the nearest position to the minimum fluid level (63 mm from the back of the tank). The swivelling connector with front or axial output guarantees protection against water jets, ensuring IP65 protection class according to IEC 529.
