What is Sight Glass Level Gauge?

The sight glass consists of a strengthened glass tube, attached to the container as shown in Figure, through which the fluid level in the container can easily be observed by the operator.

Monitoring the level from a distance, is facilitated when a magnetic float inside the tube, is allowed to rise and fall with the liquid level, causing metallic flags (or louvers) to flip and expose a different colour, indicating the level.

What is Sight Glass Level Gauge?

These devices are available with continuous monitoring equipment, allowing both a local visible indication as well as an external signal for remote monitoring.

Glass Level Gauges can be divided into the below (most common) 2 types:

  • Reflex Glass Type
  • Transparent Glass Type


What is Sight Glass Level Gauge?

Gas or steam phase: Light reflects by the prismatic grooves of the glass, which therefore gives a clear appearance.

Liquid phase: the light is absorbed, thus providing a dark indication of the level.


What is Sight Glass Level Gauge?

In this type of level gauges, the liquid is contained between two transparent glasses. This permits a through vision of the fluid(s), thus providing a perfect indication of the level.
