Southampton, PA, United States, 2007/05/29 - In order to be a one-stop supplier for tubing and hose, NewAge now provides clamps and fittings, too. Three types of clamps are stocked – Oetiker® ear type, stainless steel worm gear, and nylon double bond.
Now available from plastic tubing and hose manufacturer NewAge Industries are clamps for fitting attachment in three different styles. Consisting of ear type, worm gear, and double bond, the clamps are used in all sorts of industries, including OEM, chemical, aerospace and aviation, food and beverage, laboratory, medical and pharmaceutical, pool and spa, robotics, appliance, automotive, MRO, recreational vehicles, marine, and many others.
Clamps are usually a necessary part of the plastic tubing and hose buying process, because in most applications the tubing or hose must be attached to another component. Fittings accomplish this but typically need to be secured with a clamp. To simplify the purchasing task, NewAge Industries has an assortment of clamps and fittings, ready for immediate shipment, to accompany its tubing and hose.
NewAge offers the unique and compact Oetiker® ear type clamping system in stainless steel and zinc plated carbon steel. Oetiker clamps breathe to adapt to expansion and contraction, yet remain secure and tamper-proof. Because they’re lightweight and compact, the clamps are well suited to limited-space applications. Sizes range from 5/32” to 1-9/16” nominal O.D. Pincers for clamp installation are also stocked.
Worm gear clamps offer easy installation – simply tighten with a screwdriver. Their stainless steel construction provides durability, and a lined version is available for use with very soft tubing such as silicone. Worm gear clamps come in a wide range of sizes – from 3/8” through 6” nominal diameter.
Another option is NewAge’s brand of nylon double bond clamps called Kwik Clamp™. Manufactured from U.L.-listed, black, nylon 6-6, Kwik Clamps will not rust or corrode and are non-conductive. The patented double row of teeth ensures a strong bond that will not vibrate loose. No tools are needed for installation, and Kwik Clamps are reusable. Sizes range from 1/4” to 4-1/4” nominal O.D.
Fittings available from NewAge that warrant clamp usage include plastic and brass barbed type, cam operated couplings, two-stage safety air couplers, and even certain styles of push-to-connect fittings, which are designed primarily for use with rigid tubing. Plastic and rubber tubing and hose is stocked by NewAge Industries in almost 30 variations.
