Original Press Release:



Sanitary Lock-Out Clamp Limits Access to Hazardous Piping



The most recent addition to the L.J. Star line of sanitary fittings, a safety clamp that allows the clamp to be positively locked, ensures that only authorized personnel have access to the clamp. The new lock-out clamp is designed for use with otherwise 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.

Many sizes are available from stock. Information on current availability can be obtained by contacting the L.J. Star offices. Prices range from $25 for the ½-inch models.
