Pipe clamps are generally used for attaching and fastening two pieces of round tubes. They largely come in two styles.
- Conventional Tube Clamp – This is a circular stock piece moulded from the pony shoe including the strings on the finishes and another top from the semi-circular level stock with holes on each end. The suspended finishes of the main piece are engineered with locking nut assemblies and can be fixed.
- Flat Bar Clamp – The pattern is mainly used for fume piping of treated steel and is usually extended to close connections without distorting the tube case. The fine strengthened steel level piece is wrapped around the intermediate tubes. The clamp is used to connect the two tube clamps to achieve a bonding seal.
Tips for using pipe tube clamps
When using wood pipe clamps on fume tubes in vehicles or plumbing applications, it is not appropriate to over-fix the clamp. This may cause fluctuations in the pipes which cause irreversible versions. It can also create a compact tube which makes splitting strange later on. To obtain a properly fixed clamp, it is appropriate to apply equivalent tension gauges to both sides of the clamp and then twist the nuts a full turn with a wrench when tight with a finger.
For plumbing, it is reasonable to use a tape type clamp. This is because they do not tend to break, and they do not pound the plastic tube. The level support clip again will be ideal for supporting or hanging PVC pipe. This is because it does not encompass the tube, but rather makes the long-suspended supporting type of support from an elongated pole attached to a ceiling crane or floor crane.
