Des-Case, a manufacturer of contamination control products, announced its recent purchase of the visual oil analysis product line of Houston, Texas-based ESCO, an oil sight glass and level monitor manufacturer, Copaltite distributor, and Dow Corning product distributor. Products acquired include ESCO's 3-D BullsEye Viewport, as well as its oil sight glasses, indicators, and oil level monitors.
Since the first oil sight glass was developed by ESCO, additional models including horizontal, high temperature, large volume, and level monitor models have been developed. The newest product, the 3-D BullsEye, was designed as a response to customer requests for a better visual monitor from any angle.
ESCO’s products aid detection of contamination through visual monitoring, complementing Des-Case's breathers and fluid handling products, which protect and clean the oil. The oil sight glass is a clear cylinder that installs in the drain port of the oil reservoir of pumps, gearboxes, bearing housings, and other pieces of equipment. The sight glass provides continuous fluid monitoring of the clarity, color, sediment, and water contamination in the oil.
ESCO will remain a distributor of Des-Case products and oil sight glasses and will continue to sell Dow Corning products.
