Deluxe Sight Glass for Draw-Off Port (3/4″ fittings)
This Sight Glass will measure sap level in your evaporator pan. By maintaining at least 2″ depth in your pan, you will protect both your syrup and your pan from scorching. This Sight Glass configuration works excellent on pans that have a 3/4″ Draw-Off Port.
- Solid stainless steel base
- Anti-turbulence oriface to keep the liquid in the sight glass steady even during a rolling boil
- The glass is fire polished and shatter-resistant
- The scale can be placed by you to ensure the level is perfectly calibrated
NOTE: You must attach your pan’s existing 3/4″ Ball Valve at the bottom of the assembly as illustrated in the photos.
The base is solid stainless steel with an anti-turbulence oriface to keep the liquid steady within the sight glass while there is a rolling boil in the pan it is connected to. The glass is fire polished and shatter-resistant. The scale can be placed by you to ensure the level is perfectly calibrated to your pan.
This Sight Glass configuration will still allow you to draw off syrup from this port. You will just have the added benefit of being able to see your pan’s sap level.
NOTE: Always keep your sap level at about 2″ depth to prevent scorching of your syrup and pan. If your Sight Glass indicates that you have 1″ depth, that actually means that you have 1″ OR LOWER, and you should add sap right away.
