Polypropylene Side mount Float Switch with 1/2" x 1/2" NPT

Available for same-day shipment The M8700 side-mounted liquid level switch has a polypropylene stem and a polypropylene float. The M8700 series side-mount plastic float switches are designed for liquid level sensing for a wide variety of fluids and conditions. These hermetically sealed float switches provide years of dependable sensing at an economical cost. Used with standard 1/2” NPT threaded stem, these plastic switches provide control signals for many different liquid level sensor applications. Any of our side-mount float switches can easily be mounted through the wall of a tank as a High or Low level float switch. Slosh shields are also available to protect the float and switches from turbulence or debris.

All wetted materials are NSF grade material and the float switch is listed as a NSF component and widely used in the food equipment industry.

Note: SPST = Single Pole, Single Throw Reed Switch

Switch Applications

  • A great choice for lower-temperature food processing applications (to 221˚F/105°C) as a single point liquid level float switch
  • Steam tables and condensate pans as a float level switch to monitor High or Low levels
  • As a single point Low level float switch for pump dry protection
  • Sump alarm float switch for flood protection if sump pump or tank shut-offs fail

Madison Company uses only polypropylene that is FDA-approved for food contact in these float switches. Polypropylene is also a great choice for chemical resistance from DI-water to acidic fluids used in electroplating or chemical processes.

Switches are rated for resistive loads. See our Electrical Considerations for UL guidelines for current (Amperes resistive) at different voltages.
