This Oetiker 18500075 beverage kit contains a variety of Stepless ear clamps and a pair of side jaw pincers for clamping hose clamps in a variety of diameters. The blades of the pincers are set on the side of the jaws for applications most easily serviced by clamping parallel to the application. The dimple or indentation on the ear of the ear elements increases the clamping force for a more secure hold, and the ear is visibly deformed when clamped correctly, providing assurance of proper closure. The mechanical interlock of this clamp keeps it securely closed and provides better corrosion resistance than a spot-weld, which is vulnerable to corrosion. The ear clamps are stainless steel for resisting scaling and corrosion for at least 1000 hours of exposure to salt spray in compliance with Deutsches Institut für Normung-English International Organization for Standardization (DIN EN ISO) standard 9227. This clamp kit is suitable for attaching a variety of hoses to fittings or other devices in applications such as food processing and commercial fishing that involve exposure to corrosive elements, particularly salt water.
Hose clamps attach tubing and hoses to fittings to prevent flow leakage, or are used for hose or wire mounting applications. They come in a variety of designs to distribute uniform pressure over the circumference of hoses to bind them to fittings. Other hose clamp types are used for mounting, strapping, clamping, and positioning hose or wire. Hose clamps are suitable for a large number of industries, and commonly used in industrial, electronic, and automotive applications.
Oetiker manufactures hose clamps, rings, couplings, conveyor chains, hinged belts, and other connecting parts and accessories. The company, founded in 1942 and headquartered in Horgen, Switzerland, meets International Organization for Standardization/Technical Specification (ISO/TS) standard 16949.
