Material: ASME SA351 – CF8M – (316/1.4401 equivalent)
Application: Normal / Heavy Duty
Safety Feature: Safety Gate, Eye-Bolt & Shroud
The Shrouded Safety Clamp is based around the design principal of the standard SH safety clamp. This new variation benefits from the added safety feature of a domed nut replacing the wing nut. Using the domed nut guarantees that the clamp cannot be loosened by hand. This coupled with the added security of the free rotating nut shroud determines that the clamp can only be released using the correct socket adapter, alleviating problems where the piping line can easily be tampered with or accidentally released.
Nut rotations are measured from the clamp starting in its optimum clamping position (segments parallel when assembled), to the safety eyebolt being able to swing free.
One rotation = 360°
As a general rule, we would advise that, once in use, if the clamp requires repeated tightening, this can be an indication that the gasket may need replacing.
