Cobalt Blue Glass for observing flame
Cobalt blue glass is used in steel work and cement plant observation scenarios where IR protection is not required, but observation of bright furnaces requires blue eyewear to be able to see into the furnace better.
Cobalt blue glass is NOT a good substitute for green IR glass. Cobalt blue lenses do not protect the eyes from IR radiation like the green IR does, but cobalt blue lenses are not designed for that. Furnace observation cobalt blue glass is designed with the furnace observer in mind, and it allows those who are observing hot furnaces without IR radiation to see into the furnace so they can reduce eye fatigue and increase their vision of the items in the furnace.
The spectrum of cobalt elements makes it incapable of absorbing blue light (i.e., reflecting or passing through blue light, while completely absorbing yellow light with different wavelengths of blue light). Blue cobalt glass filters yellow light because of the presence of cobalt ions.
In observing the flame reaction of potassium needs through cobalt blue glass, because the potassium compounds are not pure, often mixed with some impurities, such as sodium (not easy separation), in the flame reaction, due to the flame yellow sodium, interfere with the flame reaction of potassium (purple), so you have to take yellow light filter, by the light of the principle of complementary color, yellow and blue are complementary colors. Using blue cobalt glass to filter out the yellow light, the potassium’s flame-color, purple, is clearly visible.

Borosilicate Glass for circular sight glasses or tubular sight glasses
Borosilicate glass is a kind of glass with silica and boron trioxide as the main glass-forming element. Borosilicate glasses become famous for having very low coefficients of thermal expansion, making them more resistant to thermal shock than soda-lime glass. borosilicate glass is fit to be used in sight glass lens,

Our circular sight glass is required in all areas where the visual inspection of processes in vessels has to be ensured under pressure, at high temperatures or on exposure to chemicals. These sight glasses is made mainly from borosilicate glass, we also produce sight glass lens with alumino-silicate glass or quartz glass or sapphire glass
Aluminosilicate glass for boiler gauge glass
Alumino-silicate glass is mainly composed of Si-Ca-Al-Mg and other alkali metal oxides through a scientific ratio combination, in which the content of K2O+Na2O ≤0.3%, belongs to the non-alkali aluminum silicate glass system, after high temperature tempering treatment with high temperature resistance, high pressure resistance, acid and alkali resistance and other excellent physical and chemical properties, is a variety of high pressure glass window excellent material.It is mainly used in power plant, petrochemical, nuclear power plant, deep-sea exploration equipment and other kinds of high temperature and high pressure steam package on the high pressure water level gauge glass window.
