Our most cost-conscious clamps are our "Screw Clamps" which are stainless steel hose clamps. "Screw Clamps" are used to secure flexible hose products to industrial or commercial equipment dealing with dust, fume, exhaust, and abrasives collection and/or transfer. These stainless steel clamps are the ubiquitous product that is used as duct clamps to secure a flex hose onto a pipe, over which the hose is clamped down!
Since they are made from stainless steel, they have a number of benefits due to the positive qualities that this particular alloy offers. For instance, our Screw Clamps are able to withstand higher temperatures, making them extremely durable in above ambient conditions. Since stainless steel hose clamps are resistant to corrosion, this makes them the better choice for equipment dealing with chemical fumes or other harsh conditions. Stainless steel clamps are able to endure extensive use while maintaining strength, luster and attractive appearance over an extended period of time.
We also offer the screw clamps in more sizes than our bridge clamps, starting from 1.5" ID to 20" ID. In addition most hose clamps can handle a range of hose sizes allowing for one stock to be used for a variety of ID sizes. With the range of diameter sizes available, the screw clamps are great duct clamps that provide ease, speed, and adjustability when dealing with ducts, hoses, and pipes.
Whether you use the screw clamps as small ID hose clamps, or large diameter duct clamps, these stainless steel clamps are a cost-effective product that will increase productivity and efficiency. If you an unsure of whether the screw clamp or bridge clamp is more appropriate for your application, feel free to contact our ducting specialists for assistance.
