IBC / Tote Low Level Alarms

  • Always on duty because the liquid tube is permantly attached to the alarm unit.
  • It can go anywhere because it is battery operated. No need for power outlets.
  • Uninterruptible battery power lasts for years.Lithium battery always included.
  • Loud warbling tone cuts through the loudest industrial noise.
  • Rugged. Built for rough, wet and corrosive environments.
  • Protects your pumps from debris with an intake screen.
  • Flow indicator built into low level units.
  • No wetted metal parts.
IBC TOTE TANK ALARM for low liquid level makes sure your process will never run out of chemicals. When liquid level is low, an IBC Alarm emits a very loud 103dB beeping sound, and flashing LED.
  • Uninterruptible battery power works through power failures, can't come unplugged, or be defeated. And because the Tank Alarms don't use any power until alarming, the batteries last for years.
  • Float switch is protected inside a rigid pipe so it can get knocked around without worry. Optional screen protects float from debris.
  • Adjustable Depth. to fit any size tote. Simply loosen the set screws to slide pipes to correct depth up to 50 inches. (Standard Mauser 330 gallon IBC has a depth of 48.5".
  • The feed tube is permanantly attached to the float switch, so the level alarm is always on duty.
  • Removable filter screen on the suction pipe guards your pumps from debris or crystals. A replaceable check valve can be easily inserted in-line to prevent liquid from draining when transferring to new containers if needed.
  • IBC Alarms come in different materials for many different chemistries:
    • PVDF
    • Polypropylene (standard)
      • Polypropylene models have polypropylene floats, and polypropyelene piping so all wetted parts are polypropylene except the Acrylic flow indicator and glass ball. If Acrylic is incompatible there are models available without the flow indicator.
    • Stainless upon request
  • All constructions are built for rugged industrial envirnoments
  • Standard Models Available:
    • ILP-PP - polypropylene wetted parts with liquid suction pipe and acrylic flowmeter. Includes 6 inch buttress thread lid.
    • ILPX-PP - same as above but no flow indicator.
    • ILK-PP - no liquid suction pipe. (level alarm part only).
    • PVDF (Kynar) models have the suffix KY instead of PP.
