HB Products: Oil level switch for industrial applications

The perfect switch for oil management systems securing lubrication of compressors has been now added to the ammonia21.com product database. HB Product designed the HBSO for high and low pressure applications as well as for the detection of oil in separator and filter systems.

With the encouragement of Sabroe to develop a special sensor for industrial refrigeration applications, HB Products started it its today’s core activities in 1989. Based on these long-term experiences in the refrigeration industry, the Danish-based company has developed the HBSO oil level switch that secures lubrication of compressors for ammonia applications. As a reliable monitoring and control solution it can also detect oil in separators and filter systems.

The special advantage of the HB Products’ level switches compared to optical sensors is that they are free of maintenance, uninfluenced by oil coating and also uninfluenced by foam and splashing. In addition, the split design allows easy test and replacing of electronics without depressurising the system.

Basic Specifications:

The HSBO1 Oil Level Switch has the following main features:
  • Detects all types of oil
  • Maximum working pressure: 170 bar
  • Media temperature up to +100°C/+150°C (HT-type)
  • Unaffected by pressure, oil-foam, splashing and oil-coating
  • Full electronic sensor with no moving parts to secure long time operation
  • Split type for easy test and replacing of the electronic part
  • Reliable monitoring and control solution
