Types and advantages of gauge glass

Mar. 22, 2022

Gauge glass is widely used in petrochemical, power plants and other industries, which requires Gauge glass to have the advantages of high temperature resistance, high pressure resistance, corrosion resistance, and clear indication. Generally speaking, gauge glass is generally divided into two types: reflecx gauge glass and transparent gauge glass:

1. Reflex gauge glass

Reflex gauge glass, also named reflex sight glass, reflex level gauge glass, boiler glass and reflex level gauge. Reflex level gauge glass is made from borosilicate glass and aluminosilicate glass.

There are grooves on the side of the glass surface facing the medium. According to the number of grooves, it can be divided into single groove type and multi-groove type. Generally, the number of grooves is 3 or 4 in muti-groove type reflex gauge glass.Under the conditions of use, this kind of gauge glass can resist the temperature of up to 400 degrees Celsius or the steam of up to 400 bar, and has excellent corrosion resistance, which makes the indication more clear. In addition, its acid and alkali resistance is also excellent.

2.Transparent flat gauge glass

Transparent flat gauge glass, also called transparent sight glass, transparent level glass and transparent level gauge, is also made of borosilicate glass and aluminosilicate glass. The glass is manufactured into the strip shape and used in boiler or some instruments for observing the liquid level.Unlike reflective gauge glass, its two sides are very smooth to guarantee excellent transparency. The product can endure high temperature and high pressure with working conditions of 6Mpa and 430 degrees Celsius.
