Locks in place
13 August 2014
Smith Flow Control’s IML lock is a safety device that prevents injury or product loss in the food and beverage processing industries. Specifically designed to replace an actuator mounting kit, it locks the actuator in a desired position, both remotely and locally.
Under normal conditions in the food and beverage industries, actuated valves respond to process commands in a largely automated, predetermined way. During planned maintenance or clean-in-place, however, the system managing the valves may still need to be live while work is carried out. It may therefore be necessary that a valve is deliberately held, so even if a remote signal requests the valve to change position, it will remain in a locked condition to enable work to be done safely.
The IML Lock covers F05 to F16 ISO 5211 actuator mounting dimensions and can be operated up to a maximum torque of 1500Nm.
