MANUFACTURING EQUIPMENT & SUPPLIES



Sanitary clamping
Continental Disc Corporation introduces the SANI-TORQ clamping device to tighten sanitary clamps to a specified torque setting. The new device tightens a standard 1-1/2"–4" (40–100 mm) sanitary clamp with a standard wrench until the proper torque value is reached. An audible click indicates the correct inch-pounds force has been achieved, and a self-limiting feature stops tightening the clamp. SANI-TORQ is left in place until the clamp is removed.
