What do you need to know about the ears stainless steel clips ?

The single-use hose clamp is extremely useful. It is essential for the safety of various mechanical devices and for the tightness of a connection. The collar can be sold in galvanized, galvanized, cadmium plated or stainless steel form. Its corrosion resistance and chemical composition is variable. There are fixing clamps with solid or added band, double wire, trunnion etc... The earring has the advantage of being multi-purpose.

The uses of the ear clamp

The ear clamp is used in many fields such as electricity, mechanics, industry in general (food, automotive, agricultural), maintenance... It allows quick assembly and allows for example to connect welding pipes, connect compressed air pipes, crimp rubber or plastic pipes, assemble electrical cables. In automotive applications, it is applied to transmission bellows and cooling hoses. In the private sector, it can be installed on a high-pressure cleaner or a garden hose, for example.

It is suitable for both outdoor and indoor use. It is very solid and guarantees total safety during assembly. It would be inappropriate to twist or twist it. The only way to remove it is to cut it off.

A necklace made of stainless steel

The stainless steel earring is a very effective accessory that resists corrosion. Stainless steel is galvanized and subject to a very rigorous inspection regime. It thus escapes rust. To avoid damaging the parts to which it is applied, the collar is deburred during its manufacture (the joints left by the moulding are removed).

There are several categories of stainless steel. It is particularly recommended for sailors and boaters to use the most resistant. Some of them are tested in salt spray and specially adapted for navigation.

Feel free to refer to European standards, especially French or German.
