Clamp ear: fast and simple installation, visible deformation provides evidence of proper closure
Dimple: increases clamping force
Specially formed strip edges: reduced risk of damage to parts being clamped
Stainless Steel, material no. 1.4301/UNS S30400
Genuine Oetiker Clamps
The following applies as a guideline: To determine the correct clamp diameter, push the hose onto the attaching material, (e.g. the nipple), and then measure the outer diameter of the hose. The value of the outer diameter must be slightly above the average value of the diameter range of the clamp to be selected. The listed size of the clamp denotes the inner diameter (id) of the clamp.
The mechanical interlock is a mechanical connection which keeps the clamp securely closed. By using a mechanical interlock instead of spot-welding, corrosion around the closure elements is reduced.
How to Install
These clamps can be easily installed using Oetiker Hand Installation Pincers (HIP). The HIP tools have been designed especially for pinching ear clamps quickly and easily.
