Sanitary lock-out clamp limits access to hazardous piping
Safety clamp allows the clamp to be positively locked, ensuring that only authorized personnel have access to the clamp. The new lock-out clamp from L.J. Star is designed for use with hazardous high-temperature piping lines often associated with steam and CIP/SIP cleaning processes. The new locking clamp is an adaptation of the shrouded clamp – a standard product in the broader SH safety clamp line. The hex-head nut that secures the clamp is covered by an extended shroud that accepts a small combination lock or key lock. This prevents a hex wrench from reaching the bold head, making unauthorized access virtually impossible. The new clamps are formed of 316 stainless steel with 304 stainless steel a common optional choice. Standard sizes range from ½-inch to 4-inches with custom sizes also an option.
