can be applied on hose or for any other clamp need. Quality stainless steel clamps for all mechanical and industrial applications.
Oetiker® ear type clamps
"breathe" and adapt to the expansion and contraction of hose affected by thermodynamics or aging, no need to re-tighten.
are lightweight and compact which is important when bulky screw-type clamps interfere with limited space applications.
provide a tamper-proof seal without damage to the hose.
maintain clamping force due to their ability to expand as a hose assembly is subjected to temperature cycling. Standard worm-drive clamps can't expand and, therefore, force the hose material to extrude away from the clamp area during a heat cycle. After several heat cycles, they can lose most of their clamping force.
Oetiker / Knipex® Pincer Pliers
The Dual Jaw/Side Jaw Crimp Tool can be used either parallel to the hose or perpendicular to the hose allowing access in almost any situation.
Oetiker® stepless screw clamps
feature a unique tongue-in-groove design to provide a perfect 360 degree seal. The narrow band width of 9mm is designed to fit grooved objects. They are ideal where specialty clamping needs have to be met and the application calls for a smooth inner surface such as on flexible duct sleeves. The tongue-in-groove design provides that stepless complete seal. Manufactured using 300 AISI series stainless steel.
The careful selection and installation of Oetiker clamps
is of the utmost importance for their performance in a specific application.
Installation of Oetiker® Clamps:
Only Oetiker® recommended tools should be used to close Oetiker® clamp ears
, and they should be closed with a uniform, recommended force. The closing force must be the parameter that determines when closure is complete. This method ensures positive stress on the hose which does not result in excessive compression or expansion of the band material. The visible deformation of the clamp ear provides a visible and instant check that closure has been carried out. Please not that, unless otherwise stated, Oetiker Clamps and Rings
can be used only once. Once removed, they can no longer be reused and should be discarded. Oetiker Clamp Pliers,
along with the rest of the Oetiker system are recommended by Saab, GM, Ford, Nissan, Polaris, Ski Doo, Sea Doo, Harley Davidson and others.
Besides being the perfect tool for installing and removing Oetiker clamps, Oetiker Clamp Pliers are also great for all kinds of cutting jobs around the shop
