Class Information
Number: 137/393
Name: Fluid handling > Liquid level responsive or maintaining systems > With control fluid connection at desired liquid level
Description: Apparatus wherein the level to be controlled is in a pressure tank, as a boiler, and a separate control chamber is provided to control a liquid inflow or outflow line of the tank. The control chamber is provided with a connection to the tank at the desired liquid level so that when the liquid is above this level the chamber is filled with liquid by the tank pressure and when the liquid is below the desired level the liquid in the control chamber is drained to the pressure tank. The presence or absence of liquid in the control chamber causes the control of the liquid inflow or outflow line of the tank.
