At MAGNETROL, we understand all the ways that level matters to your business. That’s why it matters to us

No matter who you are or what your industry produces, level matters. Despite the differences across the many market segments we serve, there’s one thing all applications have in common: Accurate, reliable level measurement is a key component of each and every one.

At Magnetrol®, level measurement has always been our primary strength. We realize that what’s most important to your plant is not an individual product or service, but the information, confidence and efficiency that reliable level measurement brings you.

A history of innovation

"Industry leader" is a role Magnetrol® has played for over 90 years. In fact, the history of MAGNETROL is a story of the pioneers who built the level instrumentation industry.

We manufactured the first liquid level switch to accurately and safely detect motion of liquid in boilers and feedwater systems. We introduced the first pneumatic valve controller, supporting the growth of the nuclear power industry with new standards in safety and performance.

As our name became synonymous with rock-solid, reliable mechanical buoyancy controls, we secured our core capabilities in electronic technologies, including RF capacitance and ultrasonic. And, of course, we started a legacy of world-class, award-winning radar instrumentation, which continues today with the launch of the breakthrough Eclipse® Model 706 guided wave radar.

The MAGNETROL team of innovators has never looked back.

A commitment to sustainability

Environmental sustainability has become an essential ingredient to doing business responsibly and successfully. As the market leader in level and flow instrumentation, our actions have the potential to save our customers money and help ensure a better world for generations to come.

Sustainability is not a new idea at Magnetrol®. In fact, it is already at the heart of what we do. The level and flow instruments we design and manufacture enable companies to manage the storage and processing of liquids and gas. These liquids range from water in treatment plants to petroleum in oil refineries. Even seemingly benign substances such as water, if allowed to spill uncontrolled into the environment, can wreak havoc and create the potential for an environmental disaster. As a global company, we understand that the long-term well-being of society, our associates, the strength of the global economy, and the continuing success of our own business depend on our commitment to a sustainable environment.
