New CAD library of Kest-Lock

We have now released a new library of the most common Kest-Lock components. This model library is a simplified version of the Kest-Lock components in a standardized file format, STEP AP203. The intended use of this library is for engineers to incorporate the models in their designs, all dimensions that interfaces the design and all outer dimensions is accurate, details like radius internal groves and so on has been simplified to reduce the file size. This model library is not intended for production or manufacturing of Kest-Lock. Further down on the page there is instructions on how to put the parts together correctly. Visit our library –>

Kest is ISO9001:2015 and ISO14001:2015 certified

The 7th of august 2019 Kest Technology AB received the certificate for ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015. “This was an important step for Kest to secure and improve the quality and environmental work along with the future growth of the company” – CEO Göran Kristiansson states.

By the beginning of 2017 Kest decided to start working in a more structured process-oriented way. The reason for this was of course to secure our quality, get more efficient and implement more IT support.

The environment is the future of our kids and life in general on this planet, for Kest, working towards a better environment was never a question to do or not, it was rather a question on how to be efficient and finding good tools – the topic has really engaged the whole staff, environment and what we can do to improve it, is now a standard topic on our weekly meetings.

Kest-Lock – upgraded to -1 to 10 bar [-14.5 psi to 145 psi].

Our patented Kest-lock design unites the advantages of a traditional TC-clamp with an aseptic tank or pipe connection, in a new innovative design that saves the industry time and money.

The upgrade has generated small geometrical changes on the following articles Kest-Lock Pipe flange (KLPF), Kest-Lock Pipe Panel Flange (KLPPF) and the Kest-Lock Pipe Adapter Flange (KLPAF).
