You have a container of product in a temperature and humidity-controlled environment. You want to check the integrity of the product periodically to make sure it’s still good without having to break the seal on the container. An Observation Window installed on your container is the solution.
What are observation windows? What are they used for?
Observation windows are a small round, metal or nylon piece, with a clear window that is installed on the side of your container or packaging. It’s often screwed in, with one piece of the window on each side of the container. It’s sealed in place to ensure the contents of the container are kept in the ideal environment of your choosing. You can see through it and shine a light in to observe what is stored inside your container.
How to choose the right observation window
Choose a window large enough to see into the container clearly. Choose the material and seal type to ensure an air and water-tight seal. Often, a window is installed on either side of the container, one to look through and one to shine a light into. This can be for visibility, or for the secondary purpose of seeing if the container has a load in it.
