The Pressed Steel Economy Clamp is used for repairing badly pitted and corroded pipe lines at minimum cost.
This is not a thin spring-steel band with attached lugs. It is a 3/16" thick steel plate with inseparable "wedge-shaped" lugs pressed out of the material itself. This special construction prevents any give or collapse of the lug so that the full amount of take-up pressure applied by the bolts is transmitted directly to the gasket over the leak. While the clamp is heavy enough to outlast the pipe, it is still sufficiently flexible to conform to the pipe surface.
The Pressed Steel Economy Clamp is available in two widths:
Narrow: 4" wide for pit holes, complete with cone plug gasket fastened in place.
Wide: 8" wide for running corrosion spots, complete with a crescent shaped, pressure equalizing gasket of Skinner Special Composition for use on oil or gas lines.
Large 5/8" diameter steel bolts, plated and iridite-dipped are furnished with all clamps.
This clamp has 60 ft/lb torque and 300 psi of working pressure. It can withstand temperatures up to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.
