KM26 magnetic bargraph from K-Tek is a liquid level indicator designed for corrosive, flammable, and toxic environments.

KM26 magnetic bargraph from K-Tek is a rugged, liquid level indicator designed for corrosive, flammable, and toxic environments. Part of the KM26 magnetic level gauge family, the device has a true hermetic seal to keep moisture from entering or building up. Durable 316 stainless steel housing eliminates corrosion problems and makes the unit suitable for offshore operations. Bargraph can handle temperatures as high as 1,000 °F (538 °C) and cryogenic applications with temperatures as low as -320 °F (-195 °C).
The bargraph “is made to handle upper fluid and interface applications that are toxic, corrosive, flammable, or extreme temperatures,” said Kevin Hambrice, the company’s director of marketing. “The unit is easy to maintain, with no gauge glasses to clean, and provides excellent visibility at distances up to 50 ft. Designed for long-term operation with zero maintenance, the indicator is ideal for limited access locations or highly corrosive environments, such as offshore platforms.”

The bargraph comes in two color schemes: yellow/black (standard) and red/white (optional). Prices start at $150.
