Oil and Gas

Sight glasses and sight flow indicators are used widely in corrosive applications such as oil and gas where control and remote monitoring of operations in explosion-hazardous and non-explosive environments is critical. Lumiglas® sight glasses can handle the higher temperatures and higher pressures of corrosive applications.

For inspection and remote observation of process operations, particularly in a hazardous environment and for monitoring objects that are not normally accessible via remote controlCGM Materials offers Lumiglas® sight glasses and sight flow indicators as well as explosion-proof lights, non-ex lights and camera systems. Lumiglas® VISULEX Camera systems are ideal for remote applications that let operators view media from a control room instead of having to climb stairs or gain access to a remote area of the plant that is not usually accessible.

Process observation and visual control systems

“What’s happening in the bioreactor or in the vacuum drier?”
“Is the process in the agitator or filter system functioning properly?”
“How can I best monitor my production processes in closed vessels?”

The patented crescent-shaped Lumiglas luminaire for providing a combination of light and sight glass was the innovative answer to these questions as early as 1960, laying the cornerstone for the Lumiglas division.

Nowadays, the extensive Lumiglas® portfolio covers the entire range of sight glass luminaires – Ex and non-Ex, halogen and LED – and includes a wide variety of sight glass fittings, sight glass discs and camera systems for potentially explosive environments.

Ex- and UL-certified Lumiglas components are used in the pharmaceutical, chemical and food processing industries as well as being favoured for applications in the oil and gas industry.
