BLS 9200 Type Marine Approved bilge alarm float switch for liquid detection in voids, bilges and sumps.
All 316 Stainless Steel construction for operation in harsh environments, with metal slosh shield and integral test handle.
Bilge level sensors are a safety critical component for the detection of liquid in voids and sumps that are rarely visited or inspected by the crew. They need to be able to withstand years of installation in difficult environmental conditions, yet operate immediately and reliably should a rising liquid level indicate a leakage or flooding hazard.
The BLS9200 is designed for a long installed life and a low cost of ownership. When considering bilge alarm sensors, it would be easy for a ship builder or owner to make savings by using cheaper devices, often constructed with lower cost, less robust, materials and inferior design. We believe that this approach compromises safety, and is a false economy as maintenance and replacement costs will always exceed those of installing “the right device first time”.
The BLS 9200 Bilge Level Switch is designed, manufactured and approved to meet and exceed the requirements for severe service applications on all classes of marine vessels and offshore installations, and should always be the first choice for safety critical applications.
