Original Press Release:
L.J. Star Releases Teflon® Lined Sight Flow Indicator for Harsh Chemical Applications
New flow indicator is protected by corrosive-resistant Teflon PFA lining
TWINSBURG, Ohio -- L.J. Star has expanded its line of flow indicators to include a product that is specially coated to handle a wide variety of common corrosive chemicals. The new Teflon Lined Sight Flow Indicator withstands harsh chemicals and solvents known to react with metal and quickly break down standard.
These new flanged units provide a clear view of highly corrosive chemical processes even at high pressures, and at temperatures up to 500 degrees F. With the exception of the window, the Teflon PFA lining covers all chemically-exposed surfaces of the sight flow indicator. For exceptionally demanding applications, shields made of FEP®, KEL-F® or mica are also available to protect the sight glass. For vacuum service, clear PFA can be bonded to the window to eliminate separation of the shield and glass.
The Teflon-lined sight flow indicators are available in seven sizes, ranging from 1 to 8 inches. Customers may choose from 150 PSI or 300 PSI versions, and models that incorporate drip tube or flutter flow indicators. Most models feature ultra-sturdy investment cast bodies fitted with independently bolted glass retainers, depending on size. For added safety, view-through units are available with Metaglas® lenses.
