The number one priority in choosing the right sight glass for your application is SAFETY. When a sight glass fails it can hurt your people, it can put your process/batch at risk, and at the very least it can disrupt your entire operation with unplanned downtime.
Since sight glasses are highly engineered products, the correct design and proper material selection is critical to assure the sight glass provides a safe choice for your application. Tempered glass or annealed? Borosilicate or soda lime? The specs matter because safety matters.
We have identified six performance specs that are critical to consider when choosing which sight glass is right for your application. Since we care about SAFETY as much as you do we’d like to share what we’ve learned.
Get our white paper to understand how the specs behind these questions apply to your plant’s worker safety.
