Stainless Sanitary Fittings Lock-Out Clamp Assures Limited Access to Pipeline
L.J. Star Incorporated now offers varying styles of the Safety Clamp with the introduction of the Shrouded Safety Clamp and Lock-Out Safety Clamp for stainless sanitary fittings. Both variations are designed to further increase the safety of hazardous high temperature piping and vessels often associated with steam and CIP / SIP cleaning processes. These clamps are also used for critical process media.
The Shrouded Safety Clamp is based around the design principal of the standard SH Safety Clamp. This new variation benefits from the added safety feature of a domed nut replacing the wing-nut. Using the domed nut guarantees the clamp cannot be loosened by hand, this coupled with the added security of the free rotating nut, the shroud ensures the clamp can only be released using the correct socket adapter, alleviating problems where the piping can easily be tampered with or accidentally released.
The Lock-Out Safety Clamp for stainless sanitary fittings is an advanced version of the shrouded safety clamp, the wingnut has again been replaced with a shrouded domed nut, the shroud however is extended in length and modified to accept a number coded or key operated padlock. Once the clamp has been assembled, the padlockÕs shackle can be passed through the holes in the shroud stopping the hexagon head of the nut from being accessed and loosened by a spanner or socket set. The Lock-Out safety clamp ensures the process system can only be accessed by authorized personnel..

"I received the cart yesterday, thanks for the fast delivery! It feels sturdy. I sat on it. It does not bounce. It is also easy to clean and wipe or wash down."

"Thanks again for reacting so quickly and meeting me halfway with the element. We will be able to get installed and have things keep moving overnight with the night crew. The little things like this are always greatly appreciated when working with Liquidyne."
“This pump cut our processing time from 3 days to 1 shift. I’m not giving this pump back. You will have to come and get it if you want it... and that won’t likely happen.”
