Clamps

A hose clamp refers to a tool used to fasten objects together to prevent any unwanted movement or detachment by applying inward pressure. There is a wide selection of different types of hose clamps designed and built for various purposes. Some hose clamps are crafted to be permanent while other hose clamps are intended to be temporary such as those used to set parts while putting them together into a cohesive unit.

Temporary hose clamps are available in different varieties but the most common ones include band hose or web hose clamps, bar hose clamps, flooring hose clamps, handscrew hose clamps, magnetic hose clamps, pipe hose clamps, sash hose clamps, speed hose clamps, toggle hose clamps, etc. On the other hand, permanent hose clamps come in three major types which include hose clamps, Marman hose clamps and wire rope hose clamps.

Hose Clamps

Hose clamps also called a hose clip, it is generally used to connect and secure a hose onto a matching fitting. Several categories of hose clamps are available in the market including screw/band hose clamps, spring hose clamps, wire hose clamps, and ear hose clamps. Screw hose clamps are comprised of a band which features a screw thread pattern and is typically used for hoses that are 1/2 in diameter or bigger. Spring hose clamps are commonly used on vehicle fuel lines and cooling systems. They are best suited for confined spaces where other clamp types will need fastening tools applied from restricted or inaccessible angles. Ear hose clamps have a band into which ‘ears’ were formed. The clamp is set over the end of the hose to be linked and when the ears are shut, it deforms and pulls the band, causing it to tighten around the hose.

Also called hose clips, hose clamps are devises used to keep the tubing or hose firmly attached and sealed to the barb insert. They are normally used with flexible tubes under moderate pressures like those present in home and automotive applications. Because of their versatility, hose clamps are often adopted for purposes beyond their intended use. They are frequently utilised when an effective and durable tightening band will prove beneficial, particularly in industrial and manufacturing settings.

Hose clamps come in different types including wormdrive / band hose clamps, spring hose clamps, wire hose clamps and ear hose clamps. Wormdrive hose clamps are made of a band featuring a screw thread pattern. The band has a captive screw on one end and a loose one at the other. The clamp is applied around the hose to be attached, with the loose end inserted into the gap between the band and the captive screw. The band is tightened around the hose by turning the screw which functions as a worm drive that pulls the threads of the band. Spring hose clamps consist of spring steel cut in such a way that one side has a central protrusion on the end while the other side has a couple of protrusions on either side. The narrow protrusions are bent outwards while the steel strip is rolled to create a band, with the protrusions interlocking. Spring hose clamps are typically used in confined or awkward spaces such as automotive engine bays. Wire hose clamps are made of heavy wire bent into a U-shape then crafted into a ring configuration with overlapping ends which are angled outwards and cut. One end has a captive screw while the other has a captive nut. The overlapped ends are pushed apart when the screw is tightened, fastening the band around the hose. Ear hose clamps feature a strip into which one or more ‘ears’ have been anchored. The clamp is mounted over the end of the hose to be attached and when each ear is shut at the base with a pincer tool, it deforms and pulls the band, causing it to tighten around the hose.

Since hose clamps play an integral role as part of the safety features of hoses, it is imperative to use the best products in the market. You can also prevent undue damage to hoses by investing in tough and sturdy hose clamps. This will enable you to save from the cost of replacing hoses frequently once they have been rendered useless. In addition, majority of equipment that use pressurized or hydraulic hoses to generate power only work at optimum levels when the hoses are intact and well maintained.

There are other techniques to connect hoses such as compression fittings, push-fit fittings, crimp fittings, clamp fittings and several others, but such tools do not fall under the category of hose clamps. In terms of uses, hose clamps are restricted to moderate pressures, like those in automotive and house applications. At high pressures, the clamp must be a bit hefty in order to endure the forces stretching it without allowing any leaks or unnecessary movement. Overall, hose clamps are very versatile tools and they are often used for tasks other than their specified purpose.
