PPC is always striving to develop solutions to meet both the process and cost needs of our clients, and from that spirit comes our new X150 sight glass
. The X150 retains all of the technical advantages of our premium units, with a cost savings.
Large pressure safety margins from extra-thick lens: The single, thick lens of the X150 is capable of withstanding pressure overshoots.
Easy and Safe Maintenance: Maintenance introduces a major failure risk for conventional sight glasses, and plastic sealing gaskets eventually develop leaks. In many cases, additional sealing stress is applied to the gaskets as a resort. With a conventional sight glass, this additional stress is applied to the face of the glass lens. This can result in a catastrophic failure if the glass is eventually crushed.
To eliminate this risk, the X150 is sealed along the oblique side walls of the unit body, eliminating thrust being applied directly from the flange bolts to the glass.
Corrosion safety: The design of the X150 prevents the metallic window body from coming in contact with the process fluid. For installations where sounds inspection and maintenance are practiced, even less expensive metal compositions can be considered.
While our higher-priced offerings offer more features, the X150 contains the most essential features and a lower price than any unit we've offered previously.
