Hycontrol’s ME Series capacitance level switches provide simple, accurate and reliable level control for a wide range of applications. They are suitable for use on liquids, solids, slurries, pastes, granules, powders and pellets in high temperature, high pressure and corrosive environments.

Unlike some other capacitive switches, this unit works independently of the tank walls using an integral grounding sleeve without the need for a reference probe, which enables it to be used in concrete, plastic or other non-metallic tanks. This technology also provides an ideal solution for interface detection applications such as oil on water and liquid detection underneath a layer of foam.

Hycontrol's capacitance probes provide solid, reliable point switching with minimum maintenance requirements.
