New impact-resistant sight glass

Louise Smyth

Dixon recently introduced a new compact, impact-resistant sight glass. This new sight glass will be widely used in food, dairy and beverage hygienic processes to view products and fluids.

The design is perfect for hoses and high traffic areas due to its Lexan glass and a stainless steel body construction. It is ideal for arduous applications, heavy manual handling, high traffic and high activity areas to provide site added protection and asset security.

The new sight glass is easier to clean than bolted styles as well as being less costly cost to repair than bolted styles. Clamp connections come as standard. There are several different sizes available. It can be used up to a maximum temperature of 93°C and a maximum pressure 6.9 bar.

The sight glass is available as one of the many hygienic hose fittings complementary to Dixon’s extensive hygienic hose range, which now includes heat traced, hot water thermal and Duplex hose assemblies as part of the standard range along with a range of rubber, silicone, PVC and PTFE hose assemblies that can be custom made to exact requirements with accessories including wash down guns and steam lances.
