Fig. 7-6

The FULL SLOT style welding pad allows maximum communication of the liquidbetween the Vessel and the Weld Pad Gage.

Full Slot style with transparent glass is recommended to see a liquid-liquid interface.

Back lighting is possible when a pair of Full Slot Gages are set 180° apart on thevessel using transparent (plain) glass.

Transparent glass is usually specified with Full Slot style but Reflex glass may alsobe used.

Specify TWA for transparent glass; RWA for reflex glass.

The Vessel is frequently not slotted to match the windows in the Pad but only drilled.In such cases a 2-HOLE & CHANNEL pad can be used with no loss of fluid flow.

Advantages are a stronger installation with more reinforcement.

Commonly used with Reflex style glass.
