food and beverage process observation equipment

Flow indicators and sight glasses provide the ability to observe and validate cleaning and draining in the food and beverage industry. See L.J. Star’s solutions!

Sight glasses and sight flow indicators are important components in food and beverage processing equipment, allowing operators to observe processes inside of vessels and pipes. They are installed on homogenizers, agitators, de-aeration equipment, pasteurization equipment, formulation equipment, blenders, dryers, and brewery and cheese making equipment.

Sight glasses are also mounted on equipment such as large mixers. To illuminate the mixer vessel interior, LED sight glass lights may be used because they are resistant to vibration.

Designed for the special concerns of food processing, L.J. Star sight glasses and flow indicators use FDA compliant gaskets. To reduce the risk of broken glass in the product, Metaglas® fused sight glasses use a special combination of glass and metal that provide the strongest sight glasses available.

L.J. Star’s sterile products meet ASME-BPE standards for smooth, crevice free surfaces that do not give bacteria a place to hide. All products have electro-polish finish and are suitable for CIP/SIP cleaning. Also, full material traceability to BPE standards is available.

L.J. Star products for the food and beverage industry include sight glasses, flow indicators, in-line sight glasses, stainless sanitary fittings, sight glass lighting (luminaires), and camera systems. Optional wiper systems and heated rings provide clear viewing in applications with condensation, frost, or spray.
