This Oetiker 151 series stainless steel double-ear hose clamp is suitable for applications where more secure clamping is needed than what a one-ear clamp would provide. The two ears of this clamp have nearly double the clamping force of one-ear clamps and apply the force more uniformly for reduced thermal and vibrational expansion. It's also stainless steel for resisting scaling and corrosion. This clamp is suitable for attaching hoses to fittings or other devices for 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.
