The machine consists of a valve linked to a hollow sealed float (which is mostly ball shaped) by means of a lever built close to the tank top part. The valve connects to the incoming water supply and is opened then closed with the lever containing the float on its end. When the incoming water causes the water level inside to reach a certain pre-set level together with the float, the mechanism then forces the water to close the valve. This shuts off the flow of water.<br /><br />The device finds its way into the flush toilets that are used every day. When it comes to using the toilet, the toilet handle is usual turned on with a discharge mechanism activated by means of chain or rod. This mechanism can be a flapper valve made to sink relatively slower than the water that will leave out of the toilet bowl below making the tank empty. <br /><br />When the level of water reduces, the float descends and actuates the fill valve. Then water is fedto the tank to return normal levels while a smaller flow directed to the overflow tube to fill the bowl again. As the flapper valve closes, the water flowing continues from the fill valve until the tank level reaches the fill line again. <br /><br />There are many companies that supply customers these devices in the market. While many customers long to have fun while using the toilets, it’s important to look for devices with good features;<br /><br /></p> <ul> <li>Durability. While looking for this device in the market, consider how long it will offer you that important service without causing problems. When the product becomes long lasting one, it’s worth the price to pay. The valves are usual made from good materials to ensure they do not corrode or degrade due to being in contact with the liquids constantly. </li> </ul> <ul> <li>Quality. It’s difficult to determine a quality one, but upon usage, you’ll be able to know the effectiveness and efficiency. </li> </ul> <ul> <li>Affordable. Make sure that you go for the most affordable ball float valves. Many companies sell these products at nominal prices.</li> </ul> <p><br />May you make the best choices after checking the best features from valves, float and levers in the devices you want to purchase!</p> Types of Level Gauges http://www.bkequipments.com/blog/types-of-level-gauges_5154.htm Fri, 24 Apr 2015 12:03:37 +0530 <p>Level Gauges have been in use for a long time, for measuring fluids. There are different types of fluids, which can range from neutral like water, and even acidic chemicals like hydrochloric and sulphuric acid. So it makes it important that different gauges should be made from different materials for accurately measuring the volume of these compounds without deteriorating. Some of the gauges used in different industries include:</p> <ul> <li>Magnetic: They are built for handling corrosive chemicals and can manage functions at severe environmental conditions. They can work at temperatures that can range up to 4000C and pressures of 220 bar. They can be installed in overhead and underground storage tanks and works according to Archimedes Principle and magnetic property of attraction and repulsion.</li> <li>Tubular: Tubular gauges usually have a glass exterior, so they are mounted parallel to the tank, so that it can measure the liquid level. At the end blocks of the gauge, there are ports for isolation of the drain valve and the vent plug. For preventing accidental damage to tubular gauge, they are fitted with guards in the form of tie-rods. They are also fitted with Auto ball check to prevent liquid loss. Tubular Level Gauge Manufacturer make good quality gauges that provide reliable readings for measuring liquids at low temperature or pressure.</li> <li>Reflex: They work on the principle of refractive differences between liquid and vapor. They are majorly used for detection of liquid level in a vessel. A transparent tube is attached to the gauge, where sight glass contains liquid behind it. This sight glass has prismatic grooves towards the liquid and vapor space, which would reflect the external light coming towards it. If light encounters the groves in vapor space, it appears silvery white, while in liquid space it would appear black.</li> </ul> <p><br />Level Gauges play a very important part in determining the level of any liquid, hence used in many manufacturing and scientific industries.</p> Sight Flow Indicators and Their Applications http://www.bkequipments.com/blog/sight-flow-indicators-and-their-applications_5271.htm Mon, 18 May 2015 14:25:42 +0530 <p>It was practically impossible to see and check the liquid flow levels in pipelines and vessels, but the introduction of observation equipment like Sight Flow Indicators have turned out to be an invaluable addition in the processes where fluids moving in pipes have to be measured.
