Process view sight glasses offer the ability to view product within the tank without exposing it to outside elements. They are often installed as a semi-permanent fixture on a variety of tanks to allow visual monitoring in the midst of operation. Each stainless steel sight glass comes apart for easy cleaning. The high pressure sight glasses feature Maxos glass, a German manufactured tempered borosilicate glass capable of withstanding substantially greater pressure than the standard glass counterpart.
Maxos glass works in conjunction with Glacier Tanks' high pressure sight glass which has the appropriate PTFE and DIN compatible nut designed to cover a larger portion of the glass. Using Maxos glass in a standard process view will severely compromise the safety factor as the PTFE gasket and nut do NOT reduce the unsupported diameter sufficiently to meet our Safety Factor values.
