The objective of a sight glass is to provide a window into a pressure vessel, a hot temperature or corrosive process environment, for machine vision or live observation. We offer high pressure sight glasses and sight windows operating in high temperatures for semiconductor reactors, tank sight glasses, oil level siteglass and sight windows for imaging systems. All our sight glasses are offered with downloadable CAD models and are available for purchase online.
The housing has NPT threads. High pressure, high temperature sight glasses with optical clarity ranging from just see the colors & light, to excellent, transmitting from IR to UV.
Housing with NPTF (Dryseal) threads. High pressure, high temperature sight glasses with good optical clarity. Ideal for oil & gas applications.
