Float type level control Finetek reaches the plain of Giza

Published on 2015-05-08

Giza plateau, at about 20 kilometres from Cairo (Eqypt), preserved after 4,000 years the most classic and symbolic reflection of Egypt: the pyramids.


Currently in northern Giza, 30 kilometres from Cairo, stands the combined cycle power plant, considered part of a program that aims to help Egypt satisfy its incising demand of electric energy and develop efficient and sustainable sources of energy.

Tecnoil installs a float level switch from Finetek at the plant in Giza

Framed within this big project, Tecnoil has installed various 0-1 output cable float level switches from Finetek, supplied by Garma Electronica, to detect the level of the liquids inside the tanks.

Most of the tank in which Tecnoil had operated with on the Giza plant had rain water on them; others collected wastes which could have water and hydrocarbons. They were open big (5 metres tall) tanks, to be able to work on high temperatures. Because of this, Tecnoil needed a level sensor which can withstand high temperatures, because one of the tanks received water from the refrigeration turbines and arrived at high temperatures. The level sensor provided by Garma was a stainless steel float, able to withstand temperature as high as 170º in the tanks. The float type level switch is easy to install, has low cost, is durable and specially designed to solve long-range and the multi-point level detection on liquids. Depending on what is going to be used on the float type level control can be done in various materials (from plastic to stainless steel).



Cable Float type level switch devices

All this float type control (level switches, cable float level switch) devices are installed over a pool or a tank with liquids, and allow to detect is the high or level of the stored material reaches or exceeds a predetermined level. When that condition is met, the devices generate an action which prevents the level to keep rising.

Tecnoil, in addition to the installation of the plant in Giza, has also made other similar installations in Bretagna (France).
