LJ Star 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.
LJ Star has announced a new design for critical process lighting that is said to offer powerful and reliable LED lighting with a longer service life and higher energy efficiencies than typical halogen bulbs. The new Lumiglas explosion-proof light model USL08LED-EX is the brightest sight glass light available on the market, the company says.
A newly upgraded patent-pending design visual flow indicator design minimizes contamination by eliminating threads. This clamp type-sterile visual flow Indicator avoids assembly that leads to contamination in sterile pharmaceutical/biotech facilities.
Sterile/pharma facilities use clamps to connect miles of piping and tubing in facilities to prevent leaks. But some tend to experience “galling,” when the clamp’s bolt and nut become bound and hard or even impossible to open.
If you still have out of date soda lime sight glasses in your facility that haven’t been replaced with borosilicate glass, then the answer is no. Inferior quality glass tends to shatter or even explode under high pressure which can threaten your safety.
Since it was developed in the 1970s, Metaglas has been known as the safest sight glass in the world. A number of chemical and manufacturing companies collaborated to create Metaglas, and to establish the standard with which it complies and by which all other sight glass is measured, a standard now called DIN7079.
