Clamps are used to attach a fitting to a hose or even to join hoses together. Murray stainless steel pinch clamps, available from All Valve Industries , are widely used in the irrigation industry.
Murray stainless steel pinch clamps are handy for irrigation applications for several reasons. They are:
- The clamp is made of stainless steel with a welded join, making it nearly unbreakable. Stainless steel has excellent resistance to soil chemicals and UV rays from the sun. Unlike plastic ratchet clamps, the stainless pinch clamps do not weaken or break over time.
- The pinch clamps are cost efficient and have an inexpensive crimping tool retailing.
- The Murray pinch clamps are quick and easy to apply. Each clamp takes just a few seconds to fasten, which saves time, especially in large jobs.
In addition to the irrigation industry, pinch clamps are used on both soft hose and rigid plastic pipes in areas such as water supply systems, on fuel and vapour lines, to attach dust shields and air filters, for beverage supply lines, for car wash supply lines and for securing bundles of cable.
