Keeping interlocks working
Published:  01 July, 2014

DustPlug.jpgSMITH FLOW CONTROL reports it has developed a range of dust plugs and vinyl bags to keep interlocks free from the worst of the elements, even in the most hostile environments.

Dust plugs can be a simple and highly effective way to prevent dust and dirt ingress into key interlocks. Made from high density polyethylene (HDPE) and fitted with a ‘soft sealing’ aperture gasket, the plug is inserted into the key aperture as soon as one of the coded keys is removed. Vinyl bags can be a simpler solution, these robust covers envelop the complete interlock unit and protect key aperture points and lock bodies. They are weather- and dust-proof and also have UV protection so they don’t deteriorate in the sun. The company says both of these products are simple to use and provide a powerful physical barrier, whatever the elements are throwing at valve interlocks.
