Oil Sight Glasses
Schroeder Oil Sight Glasses provide maintenance and lubrication management professionals a complete and immediate visual oil analysis. Constructed of durable cast acrylic, they withstand most petroleum products to remain crystal clear. Although easy detection and discharge of water contamination are leading benefits, operators can also visually monitor the oil for discoloration or debris. The drain valve is made from brass with a vulcanized rubber seal. Both materials have excellent resistance to hydrocarbon and petroleum-based products, hydraulic fluids, most silicone fluids, and fuels.
The 3-D Oil Sight Glass is machined from one solid piece of impact resistant, high strength, stain-resistant< cast acrylic. It has excellent resistance to hydrocarbon and petroleum-based products, hydraulic fluids, most silicone fluids, and fuels. Replaces problematic, old-fashioned oil level sight plugs. Fits virtually every oil reservoir. Revolutionary easy view design is visible from virtually any angle, minimizing false positives.
When oil operating temperatures or radiant heat from adjacent equipment are continually in excess of 165°F, you should consider utilizing the Schroeder High Temperature Oil Sight Glass.
The Horizontal Oil Sight Glass is designed to be installed on equipment that has restricted vertical clearance. The design has the mounting nipple and drain valve eccentrically machined and oriented 180° apart. This provides the same ability to discharge any accumulated water.
Any Oil Sight Glass can be equipped with a rare earth magnet that attracts and holds microscopic ferrous particles in your oil. Further analysis of these particles can help determine what component is failing for replacement. The Magnet Drain Valve is easily interchanged with the standard drain valve on any OSG product.
When seeing and maintaining the level of oil in your reservoir is critical, the Oil Sight Glass and Level Monitor (OSGL) provides all the benefits of the OSG plus the ability to constantly monitor the level of the reservoir oil. The dual port model has a second 3/8" NPT thread at 180° to allow the installation of a drain valve or access to the oil reservoir utilizing a pilot tube and a pitot sample adapter. This all-in-one product provides continuous monitoring of the clarity, color, sediment, water contamination and level of the oil.
When vertical mounting is required, the Schroeder Vertical Oil Sight Glass is the preferred option. For many systems the 1 oz. Oil Sight Glass is adequate. The 3 oz. Oil Sight Glass provides additional volume and should be used when the condensation or water spillover is excessive. Schroeder also offers 16 oz. and 32 oz. Oil Sight Glasses for special applications that require the ability to accumulate substantial volumes of water due to large oil reservoirs, high condensation problems or excessive water spillover. Even larger sizes and unique configurations are available for special applications.
