Product Overview

Effective and reliable StepLess® design

This special design eliminates steps and/or overlaps on the inner circumference of the clamp. Because the tongue resides in a groove, the “tongue-in-groove” feature exerts pressure on the assembled parts over 360 degrees. This enables the clamp to apply a continuous radial force completely around the connection’s diameter.

Oetiker Clamps and Rings are manufactured to metric dimensions. For identification purposes, the nominal diameter is stamped on each product. To determine the correct clamp diameter, push the hose onto the attaching material, (e.g. the nipple), and then measure the hose’s outer diameter. Select a clamp whose average value of the diameter range is slightly greater than the hose’s outer diameter.

Key Features

  • Material: Stainless Steel, Material no. 1.4301/UNS S30400
  • Narrow band: concentrates transmission of clamping force, less weight
  • Stepless over 360°: uniform compression or uniform surface pressure
  • Clamp ear: compensates for component tolerances, adjustable surface pressure
  • Dimple: increases clamping force, spring-effect compensates for changes in diameter due to thermal expansion
  • Burr-free strip edges: reduced risk of damage to parts being clamped
  • Corrosion resistance according to DIN EN ISO 9227: ≥ 1000 h
