Stainless steel hose clamps

Stainless steel hose clamps

Stainless steel hose clamps made in accordance to DIN 3015 standards are devices used to grip and support mechanical or structural parts. They are usually used for pipe and hose installations in applications such as hydraulics, power plant piping, fuel power, general industrial pipe construction, nuclear reactor construction, instrumentation and control technology and pneumatics. The key purpose of using the clamps is to reduce vibration and noise.

Stainless steel hose clamps usually consist of four components and they are the clamp shell body, cover plate, single weld plate and hexagon head bolts.

There are also a variety of other accessories available for Stainless steel hose clamps. For example, the elongated weld plates, stacking bolts, mounting rails and rail nuts. These are used for different installation methods of the Stainless steel hose clamps.

The size of a clamp varies according to the type of series. For standard series, the size ranges from 6mm to 102mm. For heavy series, the size ranges from 6mm to 406mm. Lastly, for twin series, the size ranges from 6mm to 42mm. When deciding which clamp series is appropriate for use, we have to first measure the external diameter of the pipe, tube or hose we are intending to have the clamp installed onto. The reading measurements for these are usually in metric sizes and the outer diameter size or nominal bore sizes are in inches. With the measurements of the pipe, tube or hose, an appropriate clamp series can then be recommended.

Installation of Stainless steel hose clamps:

A common way of installing the clamps involves welding the weld plate or mounting rails to the floors, walls or ceilings. There are also other ways of securing the clamps without welding. An example is to use an elongated weld plate with bolts to secure the clamps.
