Reflex level gauge glasses are installed in gauges that have a housing closed at the back. The incident light is refracted by the reflective grooves of the glass in the media-carrying area of the fitting. The area in which the liquid medium is located is thus shown as a dark bar – in contrast to the silvery gaseous area.

These glasses are mainly used in gauges open on both sides for high pressure applications. The incident light (daylight or that of a luminaire) passes through both sight glasses between which the medium is located. The level is visible as a line or through the medium itself. With aggressive media or when using saturated steam, the transparent level gauge glasses should also be provided with mica protection.
