Application

To warm up the water for the boiler, steam is bled from the power plant turbine and delivered into a preheater. As the steam cools and condenses, it is removed from the preheater with pumps. Any condensate gathering in steam pipes has to be reliably detected to prevent it from entering the turbine. Vibrating level switches, mounted at low points in the system, reliably detect any water accumulation.
