Fabrications

Fabrications

To improve safety and reliability of installations and make it easier to maintain and replace instruments, we produce a range of fabrications that allow isolation and protection of instrumentation and control products.

We are able to fabricate a range of solutions in our workshop to compliment the products we supply and enable us to manufacture and supply complete solutions.

Using regional suppliers for our materials to reduce the products carbon footprint, we can also provide traceability certificates from UK or European foundries to ensure the metals quality is as declared.

Our in house welders are trained beyond the standard coding’s available to the tougher ASME IX and BSEN ISO9606-1 coding standards to ensure our products would pass stringent non-destructive testing requirements including 100% x-ray of welds.

Should you need any level, flow or pipeline fabrications, please contact us to discuss your needs.

IAC Fabrications

Chambers and Bridles

With a history spanning over 40 years the AMS range of instrument bridles and both vertical and horizontal chambers are fabricated to suit various types of level measurement technology. Sold with our own level technology, we also fabricate to suit other manufacturers instrumentation.

Instrument Covers and Stands

Our instrument covers and stands can be selected from a standard design, or built to customer-specific requirements. The covers are used as protection for instrumentation to extend their life with sunshades offered to enable reading of displays in bright or reflective conditions.

Brackets and Holders

We offer standard brackets to mount our instruments onto. Brackets, plates and holders are used for instrument connections, and customer cages and brackets to mount instruments in confined spaces. If needed, we can fabricate specialist solutions.

Spool Pieces and Pipe Sections

We have fabricated a range of spool pieces or pipe sections to enable removal of valves for maintenance, replace sections of pipework where new instruments are being installed, or as part of a complete assembly with instrumentation installed within.

Baffles, Stilling Wells & Standpipes

We offer a range of fabricated accessories to assist with successfully installing level equipment purchased. We can fabricate baffles, stilling wells or standpipes to protect the instrument or provide an area with calmer conditions to allow for accurate reading of the level.

Level Switches

Float Switch

The most proven type of level switch on the market, the simple and robust technology has stood the test of time in a wide range of point switching applications and can work independently of foaming/bubbles, conductivity, pressure, temperature, vibration, vapours, condensation and boiling effects. 

Capacitance Switch

Suitable for both liquids and solids, capacitance probes are proven in applications with aggressive contents and those which are prone to media build up occurring.  The switches are reliable for use where vapours occur and also in tanks with agitators.

Vibrating Switch

Used for point level measurement with both liquids and granular or powdery solids, usually as an overfill protection device or a low level indicator. Self-monitoring capabilities make this switch well suited to Safety Integrated Level (SIL) applications where customers need to meet the highest industry standards.

Other Switches

We also stock and source additional level switch products from major multinational manufacturers where applications dictate that an alternative technology would work better or the application is more complicated and requires a more highly configurable or accurate solution.

Level Gauges

Magnetic Level Gauge

The MLG level gauge is a simple level indicator installed in its own bypass chamber to provide a local display of the contents within a fluid storage tank. Our robust chambers are manufactured to high standards and for most applications should match the life of the storage tank. 

Magnetic Level Indicators

Our magnet operated level indicators were originally designed for the RNLI as a low cost mechanical dip rod method of determining level in fluid tanks onboard boats with limited space. This range was developed further for land based storage tanks containing other liquids including chemicals and fuels.

Sight Gauges

To compliment our own range of magnetic level gauges and indicators we supply a range of sight gauges to allow direct viewing of liquid level within a tank. We offer reflex gauges and transparent gauges, the clear class in the transparent gauges allow the operator to view liquid level directly.
