Oetiker 1-Ear Clamps with insert
This type of clamp combines the geometry and properties of the 1-Ear Clamp with an insert made of stainless steel. These clamps are ideal for demanding applications involving soft or hard rubbers and plastics. The thin-walled insert ring (up to
0.3 mm thick), with an oval protrusion that locates in the ear space, bridges the ear gap and ensures almost uniform compression around the whole circumference of a clamp.
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.
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.
