Double-Sure™ Dual Containment Glass Sight Flow Indicators

Double Sure

Double-Sure Dual Containment Glass Sight Flow Indicators are specifically designed to provide an extra level of safety, reliability, and protection in high pressure and high temperature conditions typically found in ultrapure processing environments.

  • Dual Containment
    Each unit is double sealed for extra safety and reliability.
  • Pressure
    rating 150 psig
  • Operating Temperature
    -20°F to 350°F (-29°C to 176°C)
  • 100% Tested
    The inner chamber is subjected to both a 225 psig hydrostatic pressure test and a 150 psig helium bubble test, while the outer chamber is subjected to a 150 psig helium bubble test.
  • Lexan® Impact Shield
    A Lexan® outer safety shield with an unobstructed 360° view is standard on all Double-Sure Dual containment Sight Flow Indicators to protect the glass tube from external damage and to provide scatter protection.
  • PTFE and Glass-Wetted Surface
    PTFE and borosilicate glass-wetted surfaces offer high temperature corrosion resistance and absolute product purity.
  • Unique Seal Design
    PTFE and Viton® B gasket provides a secure, bubble-tight seal in applications with extreme thermal cycling.
  • Rugged Construction
    All Double-Sure Dual Containment Sight Flow Indicators have heavy-duty tie rods and flanges for decreased deformation under external loads.
  • Variety of Sizes
    Available in diameters of 1", 1-1/2" and 2" in lengths up to 50".

Pure-Vu Sanitary Sight Flow Indicator

Pure-Vu Sight Flow Indicator

The Pure-Vu Sight Flow Indicator is made for pharmaceutical, food, and other sterile process industries requiring sanitary cleanliness. Designed to mount in-line for high purity pipe systems with tri-clamp connections in sizes 1" - 4" diameter.

Providing a sterile, clear borosilicate glass tube 360° view, the sight area is easily seen, with a greater view than bull's eye type sight glass.

An all-stainless steel polished construction is close tolerance sealed to prevent contamination using FDA compliant materials. A polycarbonate cover shield over the glass prevents mechanical damage and in the event of pressure upset, will prevent a spray out. The unit is rated for 150 psi pressure/Full vacuum from -20°F to 350°F. Each unit is hydrotested and helium bubble checked prior to shipment.

The unit has 4 tie rods that tighten only to the proper torque necessary to seal the unit. Components can be replaced in the field. The sightglass can be CIP, sterilized, or autoclaved.

Pure-Vu™ sight flow indicators offer the ultimate design for safety in process. A unique seal design offers optimal performance in a sanitary process environment.

FLO-VU® Sight-Float Check Valve

FLO-VU Sight-Float Check Valve

The FLO-VU Sight-Float Check Valve is intended for use in vertical sampling applications and as a means of preventing vacuum scrubber contamination due to over-filling of the vertical sample leg or vessel before draining back into the sample container.

Standard construction includes type 316 stainless steel flanging, 304 hardware and PTFE / glass lined wetted surfaces. Polycarbonate shield tubes are provided on all units. The hollow ball float is molded from PTFE and seals into a soft seat made of a white Chemraz® fluoroelastomer.

Units have a full vacuum to 150 psi rating at temperatures from -20° up to 300°F.

Options Available:

Gas Purge Ring - for purging and environmental control of the annular area between the glass tube and shield.

General Purpose and Explosion Proof Light - for back-lighting through windows in difficult lighting installations.
