L.J. Star Case Study Shows a Small Investment in Sanitary Fittings Saved Millions of Dollars


Twinsburg, Ohio — August 24, 2012 — L.J. Star Inc., the leading provider of process observation equipment, has released a case study that describes how an investment of less than $100 in sanitary fittings saved millions of dollars for a pharmaceutical company.
The case study describes a situation that arose in a pharmaceutical plant that ended up costing the company three million dollars when they discovered a drip caused by a poorly designed fitting that allowed a coupling to loosen. In order to comply with FDA regulations, the company had to scrap an entire batch of an expensive drug.
In order to prevent this from happening again, the company installed an L.J. Star sanitary clamp. These clamps are made specifically for the pharmaceutical and biotech industries where joint cleanliness and efficient material flow are of paramount importance. They have design features that ensure uniform gasket compression and clamping efficiency.

L.J. Star manufactures a complete line of stainless steel sanitary fittings, including:

•   a safety clamp that increases operator safety and security
•   hygienic clamps for sanitary connections
•   SH single-bolt hygienic clamps
•   SH double-bolt hygienic clamps
•   ASME Section VIII clamps
•   lockout clamps that limit access to pipelines
