L.J. Star Displays Full Line of Sight Glass, Lights and Flow Indicator Products at 2011 Chem Show

Company demonstrates industry-leading process observation equipment to chemical and process professionals


Twinsburg, Ohio – December 1, 2011 – L.J. Star recently exhibited at the 2011 Chem Show and demonstrated its extensive line of sight glasses, sight glass lights, and visual flow indicator products for members of the chemical and similar process industries. Sight glasses and sight flow indicators provide a window into many industrial applications, including chemical and petro-chemical processing, and enhance the safety and reliability of plant operations.

This year’s Chem Show was held on November 1–3, 2011 at the Javits Center in New York City. Throughout the event, experts from the leading suppliers of process equipment, systems and products showcased their most cost-effective solutions and innovative technologies. Attendees were helped to learn how to increase process efficiency, lower costs and reduce environmental impact through educational programs.

L.J. Star’s exhibit featured sight glasses and flow indicator products designed for use on a variety of industrial equipment, including reactors, dryers, agitators, separators, evaporators, mixers, ASME pressure vessels, centrifuges, feed tanks, furnaces and glass-lined reactors. Since many industrial processes involve heat, pressure and corrosive process materials, L.J. Star’s products are developed to meet the industry’s highest safety and reliability standards. In fact, the supplier’s visual flow indicators utilize Metaglas®, a special formulation of glass that resists chemical corrosion and physical erosion, while meeting Factory Mutual (FM), DIN 7079 and DIN 7080 quality standards and USP Type I standard.

The exhibit also included a variety of explosion-proof process observation products, including highly durable lights, cameras and wiper motors. Among these products was the LED Ex Luminaire Series 55-EX, the first high power LED sight glass light with an explosion-proof rating and a recent winner of a 2011 Vaaler Award from Chemical Processing magazine. This luminaire is ideal for use in hazardous areas to reduce maintenance costs and meet company green initiatives.
