Emco Controls has carved a solid niche for itself in supplying the shipbuilding industry with float level switches. 

Float level switches are used to monitor liquid levels in containers and sound an alarm when a certain level is reached, either high or low. They can also sound when a pump is starting or stopping.

Emco Controls received a boost some years ago when it was approached by Norwegian company Odim, which expressed an interest in selling the switches to the shipping industry. This led to a new design and construction.

The switch is lightweight, modern, highly anti-corrosive, low production costs, and finally the construction had to be flexible enough to accomodate customer wishes.

The switches are made at Emco’s factory in Hillerød near Copenhagen in line with ISO 9001-2008 standard. Emco has supplied switches to A.P. Moller Maersk’s eight container vessels built at the Odense Steel Shipyard in Denmark. 

EMCO Float Level Switches are approved by major classification societies:
