Hose clamps - ensure secure attachment and prevent leakage

It is important that hoses and couplings are mounted in a safe manner because high demands are placed on them. As the liquid inside the hose is pressurised, it is necessary to have a way to seal the hose, so that it is tight without the risk of leakage.

WHAT IS A HOSE CLAMP?

A hose clamp is designed to attach or seal hoses and pipes in different dimensions to different installations. The hose clamp ensures that hoses and pipes are adequately fastened. Hose clamps are supplied in various materials such as plastic, zinc-plated steel, stainless steel and acid-resistant materials. 

HOSE CLAMPS WITH SCREWS ARE MOST COMMONLY USED

Screw clamps are the most commonly used type of hose clamps. They consist of a steel band with a screw thread pattern that is cut or pressed in, and a screw that is attached to one end of the band. By turning the screw, it acts as a gear that pulls the threads in the band, so that it is tightened or loosened around the hose. A hose clamp with a screw is very strong, and can also be used for other purposes, including mounting signs etc.

EAR CLIPS - A SIMPLE TYPE OF HOSE CLAMP WITHOUT A SCREW

One of the simplest types of hose clamps is ear clips. These do not have a screw and instead consist of a strip of steel with protruding "ears". The clamp is clamped around the hose using a special pliers that press the protrusion together. These are frequently used for hoses that are difficult to reach, as they are easily attached, and are well suited for installations with soft or hard plastic and rubber.

HOSE CLAMPS WITH RUBBER

Rubber clamps are used to attach pipes and cables. A clamp with a rubber profile on the inside of the clamp prevents the transmission of vibrations. This creates insulation and protection against scratches under high mechanical stress. The rubber profile also protects against creeping water and contact corrosion, and is sound-absorbing. This type of hose clamp is well suited in mechanical engineering, railway industry, white goods, agricultural machinery, chemical industry, construction machinery, irrigation systems, engine production, ship production, pump and filter, food and beverage industry and the mining industry.

POWER TERMINAL (PA-RI) - FOR HEAVY POWER APPLICATIONS

This type of hose clamp is often used in more powerful applications or where standard hose clamps are not suitable. They are usually available in two bandwidths of 20 mm and 24/25 mm. The material quality is galvanized steel or acid-proof AISI 316. The clamps are supplied with one or two allen screws. Wider bands can be provided but would be made to order to your specification.

TEC EXHAUST CLAMP

TEC exhaust clamp is a special clamp for exhaust applications and is used for sealing and splicing exhaust pipes. The clamp forms after the joint and provides tight mounting. It is delivered in one width, but in different sizes depending on the pipe diameter. It is manufactured from stainless steel.

EXHAUST PIPE CLAMP / U-BOLT

Exhaust pipe clamp is a special clamp in galvanized steel for mounting exhaust pipes. It is delivered in many sizes depending on the pipe diameter.

CUSTOM ADJUSTMENT WITH BAND-IT TAPE

If you need to adjust the lengths of the clamp yourself, you can use BAND-IT belts. These hose clamps are provided in metre lengths and are available in several widths with associated locks. You can easily measure the desired length yourself based on what is to be sealed, and then cut it to the desired length.
