What are sight glasses?

Sight glasses are highly durable components with a transparent glass window that allows operatives to see what’s happening inside enclosed pieces of machinery. For instance, they may show the current pressure in the system and any important changes, as well as the amount of air or gas within the machine at any given time.

The benefit of this is that engineers can use the sight glass level to check if their industrial equipment is working effectively and safely without having to stop the machine. It also allows operatives to spot any potentially dangerous issues with the pipes, tanks or other components inside the system.

What are sight glasses used for?

As sight glasses are a simple and effective way to monitor the inner workings of pneumatic systems, they are suitable for use in a range of industrial applications. They are commonly found in many industrial settings such as food and drink factories, manufacturing works and chemical plants.

In terms of specific types of equipment, air and oil level sight glasses are often used in boiler systems, combustion machinery and pharmaceutical equipment. They may also be integrated into car and truck mechanics, water treatment equipment and much more.

What to consider when choosing sight glasses

It’s essential that the sight glasses you select are appropriate for the type of system they will be used for. They need to be durable and able to withstand the amount of pressure, temperature and various other elements within the machine.

Firstly, you should choose a strong and reliable material that’s suitable for the system you’re building or maintaining. There’s a range of different options to choose from including aluminium, stainless steel and brass sight glasses. You should also consider the type of glass the component features, as manufacturers may use different materials such as Pyrex, soda lime or borosilicate glass.

Each material offers slightly different performance and capabilities, particularly in terms of corrosion, thermal-shock and pressure resistance. Another important aspect is the temperature your system will reach, as you’ll need to make sure the component can withstand and operate effectively under extreme heat.
