Sapphire Windows withstand explosive conditions.
October 11, 2013 -
Engineered of temperature-stable Sapphire to withstand thermally demanding environments up to 2,000°C, Sapphire Windows are suitable for flame detectors and analyzers of combustible gas and other hazardous materials. Hardness of 9 moh enables windows to stand up to corrosion and distortion over sustained heavy use, while transmission values from UV to mid-IR (0.2–5.0 µm) optimize sensitivity for infrared flame detection. Windows range in size from <1.0 mm up to 76.2 mm diameter.

Hazardous, High-Pressure and Explosive Conditions No Match for Swiss Jewel Sapphire Windows
Swiss Jewel Company introduces Sapphire Windows ideal for detecting gas and flames in harsh industrial environments.
In demanding industrial environments where early hazard detection matters most, rugged Sapphire Windows introduced by Swiss Jewel Company of Philadelphia, PA, are perfect for flame detectors and analyzers of combustible gas and other hazardous materials.
Harsh conditions, high pressure, high temperatures and the potential for explosions in petro-chemical and other industrial environments make gas and flame monitoring both more difficult and more crucial to ensure adequate safety.
That’s where Sapphire Windows’ unique combination of physical, chemical and optical properties stand out from other materials. Swiss Jewel’s Sapphire Windows are engineered of temperature-stable Sapphire to withstand thermally-demanding environments (up to 2,000°C), making them perfect for sensors exposed to high heat and thermal shock.
Plus, Sapphire is second only to diamond in terms of hardness (9moh), which means Swiss Jewel Sapphire Windows stand up to corrosion and distortion over sustained heavy use and offer a highly durable means for non-contact temperature measurement.
Swiss Jewel Sapphire Window transmission values, from UV to mid-IR (0.2-5.0um), also make highly sensitive windows for infra-red flame detection, key to ensuring industrial safety in high-hazard environments.
Swiss Jewel Company offers Sapphire Windows in stock from Dia. <1.0mm up to 76.2mm and larger sizes, including custom orders to fit your specifications.
