Liquid Level Gauges and Sight Indicators

Short Description:

Glass tube level gauge is a kind of direct reading liquid level measuring instrument, which is suitable for the spot detection of liquid position in the general liquid storage equipment in the industrial production process. It is simple in structure and accurate in measurement. It is a traditional spot liquid level measuring tool. Generally used for direct detection.
Each end of the level meter is equipped with a needle valve, when the glass tube accident and broken, the needle valve under the pressure of the container automatically closed, to prevent the container medium continues to flow out.

    Tubular Liquid Level Gauges are designed to view liquid levels using clear or red line Borosilicate tube to observe liquid levels. All valves use a stuffing box configuration to seal the glass tube, and have a ball check shutoff to prevent loss of vessel contents in case of glass failure. Operating pressure and temperatures are subject to the limitations of the tubular gauge glass and washer composition.

    Body material:304SS,316SS,Bronze,etc
    Sealing:Rubber,etc
    Glass tube:Borosilicate glass,clear or reline.
    Protective tube:Stainless steel or bronze
    Connections:1/2’’ or 3/4’’ male NPT.

    These valve bodies are rated for 500 PSIG at 450F. The actual pressure limitations are of the wall thickness of the glass tube,at the same time the work temperature is the other factors of influence of pressure. These sets are usable with oils and petrochemical liquids. Use with water or steam is not recommended due to the possibility of the steel valves developing rust or corrosion.
    The following pressure values are for industry standard high pressure gage glass use. The steam services values are for reference only. For actual steam service, choose stainless steel valves.

    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,
    Borosilicate glass is ultra and clear glass with good thermal and chemical properties and outstanding transparent

    Environmental engineering and chemical engineering (lining layer of repellence, autoclave of chemical reaction and safety spectacles);
    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

    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.
