KM26 – ABB Magnetic level gauge

KM26With over 350,000 installations worldwide, our KM26 magnetic level gauge (MLG) has provided custom engineered solutions to liquid level applications in industries such as: oil and gas, refinery, chemical, petrochemical, power generation and many more. The KM26 MLG has proven itself to be a safe, reliable, maintenance free solution for total and/or interface level detection in toxic, corrosive, high pressure and high temperature processes.
ABB offers the standard KM26 MLG with a chamber of virtually any non-magnetic material, extruded process connections, a custom engineered float and all accessories with 316 stainless steel construction. ABB’s KM26 MLG is the industry’s only level gauge with optional certifications including: PED, ASME (U, UM or S), ATEX constructional safety and IP68 certified hermetically sealed indicator.

The KM26 MLG has proven itself to be a safe, reliable, maintenance free solution for total and/or interface level detection in toxic, corrosive, high pressure and high temperature processes.

Features:

  • Highly visible level indication with no process fluid in contact with the glass
  • All construction in-house by code certified welders
  • Float designed and weighted for maximum accuracy with 75 grams minimum upward buoyant force
  • Transmitter and switch options which can be installed, adjusted and maintained with no process interruption
  • Safe for corrosive, flammable, toxic, high-temperature and high-pressure applications
  • Rugged design – low or no maintenance
