MLG Bridles

Reducing costs and solving space or mounting restriction issues, MLG bridles combine both magnetic visual indicators and radar level transmitters into one bypass chamber.  

AMS Purchase Cobham Range

In 2008 AMS purchased the Alan Cobham Engineering range of instrumentation and valve products from Meggitt Fuelling Systems in Blandford to continue a 40 year history of manufacturing in the UK.

Magnetic Level Indicators

Magnetic Level indicators or MLI’s are mounted above the area being measured, normally in a tank.  A float moves up and down a rod mounted in the tank and uses a magnet to move the indicator and show the tank contents level.

KSR Kueblar and Klinger

Klinger and Kueblar have developed magnetic level gauges over many years, providing a wide range of standard options and specials.  The industry specialists, these brands manufacture for most other instrument companies.

Magnetic Level Gauges

Magnetic level gauges or MLG’s are a simple float operated level indicator, installed in its own bypass chamber on the side of a vessel to provide a visual display of a tank contents.  The can also be known as bypass level gauges.

Level Gauge Fabrications

Our in house coded welders can provide bypass chamber fabrications on their own or where circumstances suit, such as delivery requirements, with floats and indicators supplied by our partners fitted as a complete magnetic level gauge.

Understanding Basic Magnetic Reed Switch Operations for Float Switches

Magnetic Reed Switches and Float SwitchesFloat switches are fundamentally a basic level control product often containing a reed switch to perform the required level control action.  The most confusing part in selecting a float switch is determining the magnetic reed...

Types of Float Switches

Different Types of Float Switch and Their PricesThere are a number of different types of float switches, each with their own advantages and disadvantages.  Most designs can be made to different specifications to suit the ruggedness requirements of an application....

Train level measurement, gauges and indicators

To solve a specific problem with access and the lack of height between a fuel tank and the trains body, AMS have modified the head of our approved level sensors to allow fitting in confined spaces. This development also removed the need for the transmitter to be located in a separate box on the side of the tank and allowed the sensor to be wired directly to the indicators, saving significant additional costs in materials and wiring time.

Train level measurement and control

Advances in the way instrumentation can be powered due to processing capabilities at reduced power levels, combined with the ever-continuing miniaturisation of electronics capability, has created the opportunity for rail companies to consider more modern electronic/digital technology as an alternative to the traditional methods for level measurement.
