Oetiker clamps are popular tools because they are reliable. They’re used in many applications, including industrial, plumbing, and automotive. They are made to securely connect two components, like pipes or hoses. They’re used to clamp by applying pressure using the clamp’s v shape. This draws tight around the components that are being connected.
As a result, a vibration-proof and water-tight seal is made.
The manufacturer’s instructions will help you determine the proper use and safety information. There’s a variety of different types of Oetiker clamps, including liner clamps, so finding the right one is important.
After you have the right clamp, you should next prepare the components to be connected. You should clean the surface of the component so it is clean and has no dirt or debris. Use a dry cloth to clean it. If you are connecting metal pipes, remove burrs that may damage the clamp’s seal.
To attach the clamp, place it over the joint between two components. Use a spanner of an appropriate size to tighten the screw until it is secure. Be sure not to overtighten the clamp.
Once you have chosen your correct type of clamp, the next step is to prepare your components for connection. Make sure the surface of each component is clean and free from dirt or debris with a dry cloth. If you are connecting metal pipes, ensure that any burrs have been removed as these could damage the seal of the clamp.
