Model B Safesite Sight Flow Indicator Assembly

This unit was assembled at the factory and is ready for installation. The sight glass should be visually checked, for any possible damage during shipping. After the unit has been installed, heated and pressurized several times, it should be inspected to check for any possible leakage. If leakage occurs, follow step (I) until leakage has stopped.

If th lens or packing in the sight glass needs to be replaced after the unit has been in operation, it is suggested that the packing be replaced each time, and the lens be replaced if there are any visual defects in the glass. When installing parts, refer to steps (A) thru (J).

  • (A) Shut down the operating vessel so there is no pressure in the system where the sight glass is operating. Disassemble the unit by removing the cap screws, cap, lens, packing and cushion gaskets.
