Spring band clamps for hose-socket connections

Spring band clamps

W.TEC®FBS – Spring band clamps for the industry

Spring band clamps are self-tightening fasteners that are suitable for hose-socket connections due to their dynamic spring properties. The use of tempered spring band steel gives the parts a very high degree of flexibility and thus they continually adapt to the changing properties of the operating temperatures and the pressure ratios of the hose and the pipe. Once the spring band clip is attached, there is no need to retighten it. With almost constant clamping force, spring band clamps ensure a continuous, leak-free sealing without damaging the hose or connection piece. Due to the large number of different assembly and locking variants, a maximum of possible applications is created.

In which industries are spring band clamps used?

Spring band clamps are used in particular in the following sectors:

  • fluid systems
  • engine construction
  • hose systems
  • commercial kitchens/Industrial dishwashers
  • industrial air conditioners
  • agricultural machinery
  • floor cleaning machines
  • campers
  • heat pumps
  • heating/air conditioning
  • sanitary (e.g., toilets for ships, trains, aircrafts)
  • food industry (e.g., bakery/coffee machines)
  • solar thermics
  • printing industry
  • white goods
  • construction machinery
  • LPG installations
  • compressors
  • industrial trucks
  • beverage industry (e.g. bottling plants)
What are the advantages and properties of spring band clamps?
Spring band clamps

Advantages of spring band clamps for connecting hoses with nozzles:

  • high flexibility through continuous adaptation to changing characteristics, e.g. temperature fluctuations of the fasteners
  • constant, uniform clamping force
  • easy installation
  • no subsequent tightening necessary
  • high reusability, since spring force is not lost
  • high process reliability due to the leak-free hose-connection

Types of spring band clamps

Standard spring band clamp

Spring band clamp standard

The standard version is the original version of spring band clamps and suitable for applications without space restrictions. This self-tightening fastener offers a nearly constant contact pressure in a wide range of temperatures and pressure conditions. Using tongs the clamp can be assembled and disassembled for safe and effective installation.

Low profile spring band clamps

Space-saving spring band clamps

The space-saving version has the same features as the standard spring band clamp. Due to the shortened and flattened mounting ends, the spring band clamp is space-optimized. We recommend the use of hose clamp pliers for the assembly and disassembly.

Prestressed spring band clamp

Spring band clamp with handyclip

The space-saving spring band clamp is also available as a pre-opened version with a plastic handyclip. Through the use of handyclips, the installation time is considerably reduced, as no tools are needed. For complete assembly, the clip is removed by simply pulling it off. In addition, this clamp is suitable for space limitations.
