Closed cell Buna-N floats are buoyancy devices made of a type of synthetic rubber called Buna-N (also known as nitrile rubber). These floats are commonly used in various industrial applications, particularly in liquid level sensing and control systems.

The "closed cell" characteristic of these floats means that they are made up of a series of interconnected air-filled pockets, which prevents the penetration of liquid into the float. This design provides excellent buoyancy and stability, as well as resistance to chemical corrosion and high temperatures. Closed cell Buna-N floats are also relatively lightweight, durable, and easy to install.

One of the key benefits of closed cell Buna-N floats is their ability to float and remain stable even in harsh or corrosive environments, making them a popular choice for applications in the oil and gas, chemical, and wastewater treatment industries.

Monitoring the level of liquid in a tank or container is an essential aspect of many industrial and commercial processes. Accurate and reliable level measurement can help prevent overfilling, spills, and equipment damage. Magnetic float switches are one of the most common and reliable methods for liquid level monitoring. Magnetic float switches work based on the principle of buoyancy. A float containing a magnet is placed inside the liquid, and as the liquid level rises or falls, the float moves accordingly. The float is connected to a mechanical switch, which is triggered by the magnet inside the float. When the magnet comes close enough to the switch, it causes the switch to change state, indicating the level of the liquid. Magnetic float switches are versatile and can be used for both high and low-level detection. They are compatible with a wide range of liquids, including corrosive and hazardous substances. They are also easy to install and require minimal maintenance. Moreover, they provide a cost-effective solution for liquid level monitoring. When installing a magnetic float switch, it's essential to consider the specific requirements of the application. Factors such as the size and shape of the container, the density of the liquid, and the operating temperature should be considered. Proper positioning of the float is also critical to ensure accurate level detection.
