Installation of Level Controls | Spirax Sarco

On a steam raising boiler there are three clear applications for level monitoring devices: Level control - To ensure that the right amount of water is added to the boiler at the right time. Low water alarm - For safe boiler operation, the low water alarm ensures that the combustion of fuel does not continue if the water level in the boiler has dropped to, or below a predetermined level.
