L. J. Star MAXOS gauge glass is said to provide better visual clarity, required tolerances and greater chemical/thermal shock resistance and is manufactured exclusively to MIL G 16356-D standards – said to be the only gauge glass on the market to do so.
The L.J. Star gauge glass is available in transparent, reflex and high pressure, in a variety of sizes. The safety sight and level gauge glasses are suitable where visual process control is essential, such as in pressure vessels subjected to thermal and chemical stresses and liquid level gauge applications.
A high safety level is secured through the use of special borosilicate glass of high chemical durability, exceptional purity and homogeneity. The low thermal expansion of the company’s SUPRAX 8488 borosilicate glass, combined with thermal prestressing (tempering) creates a high resistance to sudden temperature changes.
