Oil-Rite Introduces Adjustable-length Level Gages

Noria news wires

Oil-Rite Corp. recently introduced a new line of level gages with adjustable centerlines to accommodate centerline distances up to 1/4 inch longer or shorter than the specified measurement for total adjustability of 1/2 inch. This range of adjustability compensates for variances that can occur during the production of plastic tanks. It is also suited to field installations where the distance between mounting holes may be less precise than in a controlled setting. The adjustment can be made by hand, facilitating simple installation.

The gages feature a round nylon sight that is clear and durable. Liquid level and clarity can be viewed from all angles. A red line on the back of the sight enhances liquid level visibility. The length between the center of the two mounting bolts is referred to as the centerline. Gages are available with centerline measurements ranging from 6 to 36 inches.

The design offers a total adjustable range of 1/2 inch as opposed to conventional level gages that require mounting holes be within 1/32 inch of the gage’s centerline measurement.

Used to view liquid levels in hydraulic reservoirs, tanks, large steel-mill pumps, gearboxes, bearing housings, hydraulic equipment, crankcases, transformers and machinery oil reservoirs, the gages can be extended to many industrial liquid-level-viewing applications.
