Four Benefits of an Adapter with Sight Glass

When it comes to your work, the more information, the better. Right? The sight glass does just that. It gives you more information about what’s going on while transferring something like petroleum. As a matter of fact, the adapter is used unloading or loading petroleum from the bottom of a tanker. API valves are usually mounted to the piping below each tank compartment using a 4″ TTMA flange connection.

The Dixon 5204 adapter with a handle allows for terminal loading and unloading through the valve. It can replace the other API adapters with a length that is the same as a standard API adapter with 1 3/4″ thick acrylic donut sight glass. The sight glass provides high visibility and longer service life than the standard donut-shaped acrylic sight glasses. Other benefits include the following:

  • High visibility and long service life.
  • Strong and lightweight.
  • Low cost and easy replacement.
  • Pressure rating: 75 PSI @ 70°.
