Breeze Constant Torque Clamp

  • CT-9448
  • All Stainless Steel
  • Effective Diameter Range: 2-9/16" - 3-1/2" (65mm - 89mm)

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.
