d recommended practice on testing gloves and finger cots
Test procedures for evaluating physical attributes and cleanliness are detailed in the recently released IEST-RP-CC005.4: Gloves and Finger Cots Used in Cleanrooms and Other Controlled Environments. This newly revised Recommended Practice (RP) covers barrier gloves, knitted or woven gloves (with or without barrier palms), and heat-resistant gloves. The RP describes accepted methods for testing tensile properties, cut resistance, abrasion resistance, chemical compatibility, barrier integrity, heat resistance, aging, outgassing and static charge.

Safety showers that are designed to last
The trace-heated, mains-fed GFSF emergency shower range is manufactured completely from GRP (glass reinforced polymer) and 316 stainless steel with ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) internal pipework — all highly effective in resisting corrosion to guarantee superior strength and long life for installation in any environment down to –20°C. The units are designed to be highly visible for ease of identification and work first time every time with trace heating around the internal operating valve and pipework. Available for non-hazardous and hazardous areas, all units are built to meet and exceed ANSI and DIN standards and carry a two-year guarantee.

Safety interlocks promote safe tanker loading and unloading
These valve and trapped key interlocks guard against operator error to provide process safety control in tanker loading and unloading operations. The trapped key interlocking systems ensure that users follow a pre-determined sequence of operation for activating road, rail, and sea tanker control valves in petroleum-refining, petrochemical, pulp-and-paper, liquefied-gas and other industrial applications. The valve interlocks integrate with the company’s mechanical and electromechanical trapped key interlock series to form a comprehensive safety scheme. The Eagle Series includes integral valve interlocks to fit every type and size of quarter and multi-turn valves, as well as bolt and electro-mechanical interlocks. All Eagle Series product offerings are manufactured of 316 stainless steel, with keyways protected by a gasketed flip cover.
