Safety clamp

March 7, 2012
The L.J. Star SH Style safety clamp provides access to a joint for cleaning and inspection, including those on pipes containing hot liquids or steam; it cannot unlatch while the clamp is under pressure or before the wing-nut has been sufficiently loosened. Incorporating a 2-pin hinge that applies uniform compression on the gasket, the CE-compliant clamp comes standard in 316 stainless steel.fex0312ts17_inbody.jpg

It features a groove profile for clamping efficiency, and has a highly polished surface finish appropriate for hygienic/sanitary connections. The clamp is available from stock to fit tube O.D. sizes from 1/2 to 4 in.; larger sizes and pipe schedule sizes are available upon request.
