The Dixon HSS series stainless steel worm gear clamp has a series 300 stainless steel band and housing, a stainless steel screw, and is appropriate for use in marine environments. A worm gear mechanism adjusts the clamp’s diameter to precisely apply sealing pressure and the clamp’s four-piece construction helps provide strong clamping. The band, housing and screw are made of stainless steel that conforms to the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) 300 series standard and provides resistance to corrosion in marine environments. The slotted 5/16” hex-head screw allows installation using a blade screwdriver, nut driver, or socket wrench. The clamp is recommended for maximum torque of 50 inch-pounds. These clamps meet the SAE J1508 standard for hose clamps.
Hose clamps attach hoses to fittings to prevent flow leakage. They come in a variety of designs and distribute uniform pressure over the circumference of hoses to bind them to fittings. Hose clamps are suitable for a large number of industries, and commonly used in industrial, electronic, and automotive applications.
