Pressure caught & equalised

21 July 2015

To prevent accidents when opening couplings under pressure, Smith Flow Control has added Bajolock patented couplers to its product portfolio.

Bajolock couplers are suitable for use in a wide range of industries 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; any potential harmful residue material is discharged away from the operator. Bajolock can then be uncoupled easily and safely with a simple twist. It is interchangeable with existing, similar couplers, enabling seamless integration in plant processes.

Smith Flow Control’s Bajolock coupler is designed for use in transfer systems for pressures up to 10 bar (145 psi). It is ideal for a wide range of applications including oil & gas, petrochemical, shipping, pipe, bulk, medical and the food and beverage industry, in addition to road transportation applications.

The Bajolock coupler is manufactured according to the Pressure Equipment Directive and bears the CE mark. It is constructed from high quality 316L stainless steel and incorporates market-leading gaskets.
