Sight Flow Indicators & Sight Windows
Full View Sight Flow Indicators are utilized to observe liquid flow in vertical piping systems. These indicators offer 360° visibility, and are available in a variety of sizes with threaded or flanged connections. End plate materials can also be customized. For monitoring tank, pressure vessel, or piping system interiors, Sight Windows, also known as Sight Glasses, can be a cost-effective solution. Fluid level, flow, color, and clarity can be monitored through these windows, which can be mounted by bolting, welding, or direct insertion.

Armored Sight Flow Indicators
Armored Sight Flow Indicators feature a steel housing to protect the sight tube from mechanical impact, with various sizes and connections, suitable for low-pressure vertical or horizontal applications.
Sight Windows, also known as Sight Glasses, are a cost-effective way to view tank, pressure vessel, or piping system interiors for monitoring fluid clarity, color, level, and flow. They can be mounted by bolting, welding, or direct insertion.
KSW Series Threaded Sight Windows
KSW Threaded Sight Windows feature a low-cost solution for viewing liquids with easy installation and a hermetically sealed clear glass lens for leak-proof service. The lens is flush with the front face for easy cleaning, providing optical clarity to view liquids accurately.
About Sight Flow Indicators & Sight Windows
Sight flow indicators and sight windows are essential in observing the flow of liquids in a piping system. They allow for easy monitoring of fluid clarity, color, level, and flow through a clear glass window or lens. There are various types of sight flow indicators and windows available on the market, including the Full View, KSF Cast Body, ASF Armored, and KSW Threaded.
Full View Sight Flow Indicators are designed for vertical applications with threaded and flanged connections available in various sizes. They offer 360° visibility, making it easy to observe flow from any angle. The units are ideal for low-pressure applications, and the maximum pressure allowable will vary with temperature and size.
KSF Cast Body Sight Flow Indicators are suitable for heavy-duty applications that require pressure and temperature resistance. The units are available in two series – ST and HT – to accommodate different temperature and pressure ratings. The mechanical indicators include flappers, rotors, and drip tubes, which enhance the visibility of the media. The cast body and threaded or flanged connections meet ANSI standards, and a wide range of materials of construction are available.
ASF Armored Sight Flow Indicators offer additional strength and protection from mechanical impact as they feature a rigid steel housing surrounding the sight tube. Wetted materials consist of glass and connection end plates, and units are recommended for low-pressure vertical or horizontal applications.
Sight Windows or Sight Glasses are often replaceable or removable and offer an economical way of viewing tank, pressure vessel, and piping system interiors. They can be mounted by bolting, welding, or direct insertion into the end of the tank or pipe. KSW Threaded Sight Windows are a low-cost solution with a hermetically sealed clear glass lens that reliably meets and exceeds the requirements of most applications.
In summary, the different sight flow indicators and sight windows offer a variety of features and applications, making it easy to choose the best one for the intended use. Some of the features and benefits include a no-leak design, ANSI rated, and a 3-year warranty. It’s crucial to consult the factory for pricing and exact ratings of each unit to ensure the best performance.
Applications of sight flow indicators and sight windows include gas compressor scrubber vessels, separators, hydraulic tanks, pressure vessels, air compressors, oil reservoirs, lubrication systems, pumps, and coolant tanks. The Electroless Nickel Plated Carbon Steel Body, hermetically sealed clear glass lens, hexagon head body with male NPT mounting connection, and 2700 psig (186 bar) maximum operating pressure are some of the features of KSW Threaded Sight Windows.
