Magnetic level gages have overtaken the process industry over the last 10-15 years. They are used to monitor level in tanks, steam drums, etc. Basically anything that has liquid uses these in place of traditional glass gages. The advantages being that they eliminate the glass & gasket leaking issues [no maintenance] and can also have remote indicators attached to them, unlike glass gages.
Any instrument engineer who deals with the food, biotech, process industries, petrochemical, refinery or power should be familiar with the selection and use of Magnetic level gages.
