Great performing products do not always arise from wholly new designs. More often, they are the culmination of a string of small improvements incorporated into an existing design. You keep what works and add improvements in response to customer feedback, and newly available material and manufacturing resources.

Jogler, LLC is a high quality level gauge manufacturer, located in Baton Rouge, LA (USA). The company pursues excellence in the manufacture and performance of all its level and flow measurement and indication products. Several improvements were included in their magnetic liquid level gauges. Not all are visually apparent, so we share them here.

  • Chambers are designed to ANSI B31.1 and B31.3 specifications. Extruded outlets are used to weld chamber branch connections, ensuring smooth and reliable float travel.
  • Indicators utilize a proprietary technology to seal the bargraph indicator tubes that eliminates the use of special glass blowing techniques that can weaken the instrument and make it susceptible to damage due to shipping or vibration.
  • The bargraph assembly utilizes an extruded aluminum rail system that remains dimensionally stable, will not twist of deform at temperature extremes. Flags are captive in the rail system and cannot bind or fall out.
  • Floats are constructed with a single weld, reducing leak potential and weld induced metal weakening. 
The product line general overview is provided below. More detail on specific product features and how they can provide top flight performance in real process measurement and control applications is available from product application specialists.
