Breeze CT9416 Constant Torque Clamp w/SS Screw:Eff Diam 13/16 to 1-1/2"(21-38mm)
Breeze Constant Torque Clamp
- All Stainless Steel
- Effective Diameter Range: 13/16" - 1-1/2" (21mm - 38mm)
Virtually all rubber hose compresses "cold flow" after installation of a clamping device, resulting in an almost immediate torque loss that can exceed 80% of installation torque. Similarly, virtually all metal connections expand as a system heats up, and then contracts as the system cools. Conventional worm-gear, T-Bolt, and other clamps are passive, in that expansion and contraction of components cannot be compensated for without re-tightening or loosening the clamps.
This Breeze clamping system is an "active" clamp mechanism, which monitors and then compensates for the temperature changes by actually changing diameter through a unique worm-gear Belleville assembly.
