L.J. Star Metaglas™ Sight Glasses Provide Peace of Mind, No Matter What Lies Behind Them

TWINSBURG, Ohio --(Business Wire)--

L.J. Star Inc., a leading supplier of sight glasses and visual flow indicators, has released a video that explains how Metaglas brand sight glass protects process operators working with demanding applications where sight glass failure is not an option. This versatile sight window provides operator safety and reliable visibility-even when corrosive, high-pressure materials are involved. Watch the video:

In the video "Applications for Metaglas Sight Glasses," viewers learn about the practical benefits of using Metaglas in challenging applications. In a highly corrosive application, the chemical flow can degrade standard glass over time and diminish the clarity of the sight glass window. A Metaglas fused sight glass window utilizes borosilicate glass that resists chemical corrosion. The Metaglas design is also suited for high pressure and heat. High compression on the glass dramatically increases its strength, making it cpable of withstanding high pressure and thermal shock, so that operators are protected while they closely observe the processes. With Metaglas, operators can have peace of mind when using the sight glass window-no matter what material and pressure is behind it.

As the safest, most secure sight glass available, Metaglas is widely used across many industries. Therefore it is available in a variety of sight glass configurations, including threaded and tri-clamp connections. For additional flexibility, the product can be retrofitted to match an existing sight window configuration.

Manufactured to DIN 7079, Metaglas is produced to the highest safety glass standard in the industry and is ideal for chemical, pharmaceutical, food processing, and offshore drilling applications.
