Oil Level Indicator for transformer

oil level indicator for transformer

Oil Level Indicator for transformer

Magnetic oil level gauge consist of the main body, with following parts-      
Gear assembly
Magnetic couple
Float with arm
Cam assembly with mercury switch
Dial with pointer

The float is hinged and swings up  or down when oil level rises or falls. This rise or fall rotates the bevel gear and thus the pinion of the gear assembly. The pinion in turns rotates the driving magnet inside the conservator. The follower magnet positioned outside carries a pointer and a cam. The pointer reads oil level and the cam is set to operate the mercury switch at pre determined low level.

The dial is calibrated as per requirement. A drawing showing height of oil level inside the conservator at corresponding marking on dial shall is required.
Alarm switch
One normally open , mercury switch is provided to actuate low level alarm. The switch is adjustable to compensate error in orientation of pad.  Leads of this switch are connected to the terminals.
