LIQUID LEVEL CONTROLLER
The liquid level controller ensures that the oil level in an engine oil pan remains constant, thus guaranteeing optimal lubrication. If the oil level falls below the minimum, an alarm is triggered and a signal transmitted to a master control to stop the engine in order to prevent any damage. Additionally up to three optional sensors can be used to indicate additional fill levels which can be transmitted to a master control. This set up allows, for example, for the triggering of an alarm for overfilling or for setting an advance warning level. The sensors are tripped by a float in the side riser pipe. The oil feed is also regulated by a float which opens and closes a valve. The liquid level controller was designed to monitor and regulate the oil level in an engine oil pan. However, it can also be used to check the fill levels of other liquids (such as cooling liquids).
