-- L.J. Star Inc., the leading provider of process observation equipment, has published a handbook that provides expert technical guidance on the selection of sight flow indicators in process applications. The 14-page “Sight Flow Indicators Handbook” will be an invaluable tool for process operators who use sight flow indicator devices in process pipelines to provide a visual means of verifying liquid flow.
The handbook outlines the types of applications in which sight flow indicators may be applied as well as points to keep in mind when specifying a sight flow indicator, including direction of flow, characteristics of the process material, selection of the body material, gasket material, type of glass, window design and mounting type.
Detailed feature and benefit information is included regarding the various types of sight flow indicators, including 360-degree-view flow indicators, view-through flow indicators, flapper style flow indication, visual flow meters, rotary style indication, drip indicators, ball flow indicators and flutter style indication. Accessories such as steam jackets, cameras, lighting, and washers and wipers are covered as well.
The type of material used in sight flow indicators can vary depending upon the process medium. The handbook outlines which construction types are appropriate for differing applications. It also provides tips for the prevention of sight glass failures as well as proper installation and maintenance.
