Supplying you with industrial grade Sight Glass in styles such as Reflex, Tubular (High-Pressure & Heavy Wall), as well as the Keystone exclusive Gauge Glass Guardian.
Liquid level gauges are placed on boilers, storage tanks, or other vessels to provide a visual indication of how much liquid is present. Several different styles are available:
Tubular liquid level gauges are comprised of an upper and lower valve with a tube-style sight glass covering the distance between them. This tube can be clear or have a contrast line along its length.
Reflex liquid level gauges are manufactured with molded vertical grooves on the back side of the glass panel which is secured within a metal frame. Depending on whether the glass panel is in contact with liquid or not, the grooves will either reflect or refract any external ambient light thus enabling easy viewing of the liquid level.
Flat liquid level gauges are similar to the reflex style except that the back side of the glass panel is the same as the front. The separation between liquid and non-liquid is not as easily seen with this style of level gauge
When installed on boilers, TSSA (Technical Standards and Safety Act, 2000, O.Reg. 219/01) states;
Gauge glass safety devices
40. (1) A tubular gauge glass shall be shielded with a glass or plastic guard that shields the front and sides of the glass so as to prevent injury to any person in the event of the gauge glass breaking.
(2) Tubular gauge glass shut-off valves shall be equipped with stainless steel ball checks as a component of the valve’s construction.
