The precision manufacturing of these time-tested designs assures outstanding performance and service life. Choose from single, double or triple windows for ultimate visibility.


FG Series Gages provide wide-body construction for added strength and rigidity. Tempered flat glass composition of premium quality to resist thermal shock. All glass is tested for surface trueness prior to assembly and is protected with a high quality mica shield for steam applications.


All models feature finger-clamps which impart a uniform, perpendicular load across the glass surface, assuring gasket tightness. This design allows easy dismantling for cleaning and servicing.

A window slot, 5/8” (15.9 mm) wide, provides high visibility gage reading. For many installations, Water Gage Illuminators are recommended to improve gage readability.
