    If insulation thickness of a pressure vessel is 150 mm, is it necessary that pad type sight glass flange shall clear the insulation or else insulation can be cut at the location

      Hi – This depends on what angle of view you need in the vessel.
      To increase the angle of view, it would be possible to make the cut out area in the insulation larger to increase the angle of view, and make a separate ‘plug’ of insulation to fill the whole when not in use.
      I hope this helps
