The MS magnetic float products are comprised of buoyant materials containing a built-in magnet(s) and are used in conjunction with our LS Level Sensor series. Choose from various styles, dimensions and buoyant materials such as Polyamide (PA), Polypropylene (PP) or Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR), and Stainless Steel (V2A) depending on your application.
