Pipe and hose clamps

When buying pipe and hose clamps, there are a few things to consider. First, let's look at the differences between pipe clamps and hose clamps in general.
A pipe clamp is used in the installation technology to provide pipes or harder hoses a bracket. A good example of this is the screw clamp or the PP pipe clamp. Both types serve to "hold a pipe" firmly.

Both types of pipe clamps use a similar but different method. Further down in the text, we will take a closer look at the products and clarify their purpose.
The hose clip, on the other hand, is used to secure hoses to connection points, such as the connection to a V4A hose nozzle. The principle behind this is that by tightening the hose clamp the hose is compressed and thus seals.

In our shop we have for you various pipe and hose clamps in different sizes, materials and for different applications.
The best with us? We offer our customers discounted prices for our clamps. It is often the case that you do not need just 1 or 2 hose or pipe clamps for your project. So we want to give you a particularly attractive price quote on the way.

Of course, we also have the right accessories such as hanger bolts ready for you. If you can not find something in our shop, then please contact us directly

The different types of pipe and hose clamps
Now let's talk about the different types of hose and pipe clamps.


The PP pipe clamp
Polypropylene (PP) pipe clamps are used to fasten pipes made of PVC-U, PVC and other materials. However, since they correspond to the standard sizes of the PVC-U pipes, the use with these pipes is particularly suitable.

The pipe clamp is particularly well suited for installations such as: cable protection, water pipes or misused as a tool holder.
The clamp is designed so that it forms a slightly open circle. Here, the tube can be easily clamped. The sizes from 12mm to 32mm are open, from a size of 40mm, the clamps have an additional bracket to secure the pipe even better.


    
    
    
 For easy attachment there is a recess in the center of the clamp. Here it can be firmly anchored with the help of a screw. When mounting on wood, a simple wood screw is enough. If you use the PP pipe clamp on masonry or drywall, we recommend the use of dowels (screws and dowels not included).

This type of pipe clamp can also be used as a double pipe. For this purpose there is a male / female adapter on each clamp for each side. With the help of this you can directly connect two or more pipe clamps together. The connection of different sized pipe clamps is possible. This facilitates above all the installation of parallel piping systems.
Advantages of using polypropylene:
    
    
    
PP has a very high resistance to environmental influences and corrosion compared to many other plastics. The material behaves similar to polyethylene. A use in the temperature range of + 10 ° C to + 80 ° C poses no problem for PP. Furthermore, PP shows good resistance to light acids, alkalis, salts and fats.
In addition, the material PP is characterized by its non-polar hydrocarbon polymer with good insulation properties. On the other hand, this material should not be used in areas of ignition or explosion as static charges may occur.
Another plus for the use of PP pipe clamps is the low weight. Unlike, for example, screw clamps, these weigh just a fraction of what comparable metal clamps put on the scales.

The PE tapping clamp
Unlike the other pipe and hose clamps, the PE tapping saddle is not a system component for fastening pipes or sealing connection points.
Rather, it is used to install additional branches in pipelines, to install a drain or as a subsequent extension for your pipeline.
The PE tapping clamp consists of 2 hexagon bolts for fastening and sealing, a lower part, upper part with outlet and a sealing ring. The top with outlet has an internal thread, and a reinforcement ring made of stainless steel VA.
    
    
    
  Especially in the field of garden irrigation, this product is often used. Here, an existing or newly laid PE pipe connection is used. In order to integrate "drainage points" or a "water connection" for example your garden hose in this line, the use of the tapping clamp made of PE offers.
The principle is relatively simple - So you need a hole drill that is suitable for PE or PVC-U. At the beginning of the assembly, mark the point where the universal tapping clamp should be used. Make sure your work environment is dry and clean, this will prevent leaks. Choose a suitable drill and be sure to use a stopper or the like to avoid damaging the inner part of the pipe.

After the hole has been drilled, remove the chips and the resulting burr. Place the tapping sleeve in the middle of the hole and connect the base with the screws provided. Make sure that the EPDM ring has not slipped.

Advantages of this system are, for example, that even subsequent extensions of your pipeline can be implemented quickly and easily. We offer the PE tapping saddle in sizes from 25mm x ¾ inches up to 110mm x 2 inches.

The screw clamp
Our screw clamps with rubber insert are again of the type "pipe mounting". It is possible to attach these products to walls, ceilings or floors. Above all, you will find use in plumbing and heating installations.
    
    
    
The screw clamp consists of an upper part, lower part, two screws and the EPDM rubber sound insulation inserts. The lower part is provided with a weld nut. Here you can connect the clamp to the masonry with the help of hanger bolts. The hanger bolts are one-sided M8 thread on the other side is a thread as it is found with wood screws. When mounting in masonry, we always recommend the use of dowels. (Hanger bolt and dowels have to be ordered separately).
    
    
    
 The screw clamps are built so that you have a quick release. For this, the screw must be loosened only on one side and thanks to the opening in the upper part of this can be easily solved. This also allows one-handed overhead work.

Thanks to the EPDM insert, the pipe clamp prevents vibrations from being transmitted to the masonry or construction background. Thus, disturbing noise can be avoided.
The screws are combination screws and can be loosened and tightened with both a slot and a Phillips screwdriver.
This product can be used with all common piping systems made of plastic and metal.

The hinge pin clamp
Articulated bolt clamps are used to secure connection points, such as when a fuel hose is transferred to a hose nozzle. We offer GBS in two different qualities. Below you will find some in W2 and W4. This information indicates how corrosion resistant the respective material is. See the technical summary below for more details.
Articulated bolt clamps are used in the automotive industry and in the automotive industry, for water supply, supply and disposal and everywhere where hoses with high hardness straight lines are used.
    
    
    
This is one of the biggest advantages over other hose clamps. Due to the ingenious design of the GBS, these can be very attracted. So you get very hard hoses as it is the case with fuel lines sealed.

The hinge pin clamp has a threaded screw with external hexagon for this purpose. Here you can tighten the GBS quickly and easily with the help of a wrench or a water pump pliers. But this type hose clamp has a very small clamping range compared to worm thread clamps.
Cracks in the hose by cutting the hose clamp is prevented here, since the GBS has a rounded hose band.

The worm thread clamp
The classic among hose fuses is certainly the worm thread clamp. Colloquially, this is also referred to as a normal hose clamp. Also with this product we offer you different qualities. Below you will find W2 and W4 clamps. You can get the type W2 in 9mm and 12mm tape thickness, the type W4 in 12mm tape thickness.
The classic worm thread clamp is round and has a grooved outer edge. Here, the screw engages to tighten the clamp. By turning clockwise, the clamp is tightened, you can loosen it counterclockwise.
    
    
    
  Due to their simple design you are priced compared to the other products very attractive and have a larger clamping diameter than the hinge pin clamp.
You will need a flat-head screwdriver for assembly and you should use 2 pieces if possible to secure hoses. The hose clamps must be arranged so that the screws are opposite.

Materials science & DIN standards for pipe and hose clamps

Pipe clamps and hose clamps are also subject to certain DIN standards in order to be able to classify them more easily. For example, DIN EN 3017 describes the worm thread clamps and DIN EN 3017-3 describes the hinge pin clamps. Here torques, dimensions and materials are described. DIN EN 3017 can be found in our download area.
The different classes of materials are given in:



W1 = All components are made of galvanized steel



W2 = stainless steel band, galvanized steel screw



W4 = completely made of 304 stainless steel or comparable to DIN 3017



W5 = All components made of stainless steel 316 according to DIN 3017
