Flame-fused synthetic fused silica sight glasses are required wherever visual inspection of processes in vessels must be ensured under extreme pressure, at very high thermal and chemical stress.
Synthetic fused silica is ≥99.9995% SiO2, making it ideal for precision optics, lasers, lithography and electronics. It has superior chemical resistance and is ideal for high temperature applications.
Production and quality checks in the process sequence guarantee the property values of the glasses and the tight dimensional tolerances. With these outstanding properties, these sight glasses are suitable for extreme conditions.
