Liquid Level Control


Refrigerant  Float Switch

The LLSS refrigerant float switch provides an electrical switching action in response to change in the refrigerant levels in various applications where control and monitoring of liquid levels are required.

  Product Overview



Parker’s LLSS Refrigerant Float Switch offers proven and reliable operation by using a mechanical switch and magnet mechanism. This reliability will reduce complexity, reduce replacement costs and offer enhanced system safety. The LLSS uses corrosion resistant components including a stainless-steel float chamber to ensure a long lifetime in the harsh environments of industrial refrigeration.


The Float Switch is used to open and close solenoid valves, to activate or de-activate electrical controls, to energize or de-energize magnetic starters for starting and stopping refrigerant liquid pumps and compressors, and as a safety device, to sound alarms and turn on lights when there is high or low liquid level.


The electrical switch and operating mechanism are encapsulated within a UV resistant transparent housing. The float chamber is hermetically sealed.
