FLOAT SWITCH TESTING AUTHORIZED USERS: This procedure is designed for use by Refrigeration Service Technicians to perform testing of liquid level float switches. You must consult facility policy and procedures concerning liquid level float switches. You must follow the facility procedure. This procedure is considered minimum requirements. This procedure is to be used in addition to facility procedures. OBJECTIVE: Maintenance Procedures are designed to give general guidance when performing maintenance activities. No procedure is appropriate for every situation. Refrigeration Service Technicians should not attempt any repair which is beyond their training. CONCERNS: Careful attention to operating conditions is extremely important during this procedure. The primary incident we are trying to prevent is injury to personnel. Additionally, our goal is to avoid system upsets during testing which can lead to operational issues as well as potentially leading to an ammonia release, or mechanical damage of system components. Use by others is not authorized under any circumstances.
