How Does the TR Lock-Out Safety System Work?
A ‘TR Lock-Out’ Tube is welded to the outside of the spigot over the tool release hole in the top ridge of the BFM® fitting Spigot. Any simple padlock (≤ Ø6.5mm shackle) can then be inserted through the hole in the top and bottom of the Lock-Out tube, blocking access and making it impossible to insert anything through the TR hole without removing the padlock.
This means that only authorized staff who hold the key or combination to the padlock can gain access to the TR hole to insert a Tool Release tool to remove the connector.
This is just one more way to give peace of mind that you are doing everything you can to protect staff from injuring themselves in potentially harmful production environments.
