Sight Glasses

Product Announcement from Fusite

Sight Glasses-Image

Fusite uses its leading-edge glass-to-metal (GTM) sealing process to create highly compressed seals for hermetic sight glasses that are used as visual level and flow indicators in high-pressure or vacuum applications. We offer a variety of bolt-on, weld-in, and threaded configurations. Standard models include single port glasses for simple level checking and multiple port glasses for more complex systems.

Fusite sight glasses can be used to check liquid levels in pumps, compressors, or other components requiring visual level or flow checks. Typically sight glasses utilize thread and hexagon bodies for flat gasket seals, with flange-type bodies for bolt mounting for "O" ring seals, and also for solder mounting and resistance welding.

Typical Specifications

  • Hermeticity: <1x10-7 standard cc/sec helium
  • Burst pressure: Up to 15,000 psi, or to our customers' specifications
  • Regulatory: Recognized by global regulatory agencies (such as UL, TUV, and GL) on select models
