Protect your gage glass from impact, scratches and any other
surface damage or serve temperature changes that can
weaken the glass.
To ensure your safety and avoid breakage, please review the
following DO'S and DO NOT'S –
DO NOT work on any qage until you have carefully
read these warnings and instructions

DO NOT'S
DO NOT reuse any tubular glass, packing or seal.
DO NOT exceed the glass or gage manufacturer's
recommended working pressures or maximum recommended
gage glass length.
DO NOT bump, impact or scratch the glass.
DO NOT tighten gland nut and packing beyond gage
manufacturer's recommendations.
DO NOT operate gages unless gage valve sets are equipped
with drain vent safety ball check.
DO NOT attempt to clean glass while the unit is in operation.
Cleaning should be done without removing the gage glass.
DO NOT attempt to inspect the glass, to adjust tie rods,
packing nuts, or glands to inspect or tighten fittings without
isolating the gage from the pressure vessel and opening the
drain vent.
DO NOT weld, impact or sandblast in the gage glass are
without protecting the glass.
DO NOT have glass-to-metal contact.
DO NOT subject gage glass to bending or twisting stresses.
DO NOT allow the gage glass to contact the bottom of the
packing gland.
DO'S
DO inspect the gage glass daily, keep maintenance records,
and conduct routine replacements.
DO install protective guards when necessary to protect
personnel.
DO protect the outside of the gage glass from sudden
temperature changes, such as drafts, water spray, etc.
DO remove all deposits fro the seal areas, the gland nuts,
glands (where used) and use new packing before installing a
tubular gage glass.
DO examine gage glass for damage and seals for hard
deposits and tears.
DO verify that the tubular gage glass, gland, nuts packing,
etc. are the correct size and type before installing.
DO ensure that the system is protected by a safety shut-off
valve system (e.g. safety ball check)
MAINTENANCE: Maintenance should only be undertaken by
qualified, experienced personnel who are familiar with this
equipment and have read and understand the instructions
.

CLEANING:
Keep gage glass clean using nonabrasive commercial glass
cleaners. ever use wire brushes, metal scrapers or harsh
abrasives which could scratch the glass.

INSPECTION:
Maintenance personnel should examine the gage glass for
scratches, corrosion, chips, surface flaws or nicks on the
surfaces or edges which weaken the gage glass. To examine
the glass for these, shine a very bright concentrated light at
about a 45 degree angle. Anything which glistens and
catches the fingernail or any star-shaped or crescent shaped
mark which glistens is cause for replacement. Gage glass
which appears cloudy or roughened and will not respond to
cleaning procedures is cause for replacement.
