MAXOS® borosilicate glass safety sight glasses are required wherever visual inspection of processes in containers must be ensured under pressure, thermal and chemical stress.

The high level of safety is achieved by using a special borosilicate glass with good chemical resistance, extraordinary purity and homogeneity. In combination with the low thermal expansion typical of this borosilicate glass, thermal tempering (hardening) leads to a particularly high thermal shock resistance.

Production and quality checks in the process sequence guarantee the property values of the glasses and the close dimensional tolerances. With these outstanding safety properties, MAXOS® safety sight glasses can be used for extreme conditions.
