Smith Flow Control has introduced Bajolock® patented couplers to prevent accidents when opening couplings under pressure.
Smith Flow Control’s Bajolock coupler is designed for use in transfer systems for pressures up to 145 psi. They are to be used where it is common for pipes and systems to be under pressure when couplings are opened. It is often hard to determine the residual pressure in the system, and using conventional couplings can be dangerous. With Bajolock, pressure is caught and automatically equalised and any potential harmful residue material is discharged away from the operator. The couplers can be uncoupled easily and safely with one twist.
This new Smith Flow Control product is ideal for a wide range of applications, including: oil and gas, petrochemical, shipping, pipe, bulk, medical and the food and beverage industry.
The coupler is manufactured according to the Pressure Equipment Directive and bears the CE mark. It is constructed from 316L stainless steel and incorporates market-leading gaskets.
