Our friends over at PYI have announced the availability of an extremely high end hose clamp that has some really great features. Check this out!
PYI Hose Clamps are manufactured entirely out of 316L stainless steel giving them excellent resistance to corrosive chemicals and acids that could limit the life of other metals. Whether used industrially or around the house, the PYI Hose Clamp will keep your hose secure in some of the harshest environments. Available for 1/2″ to 7-1/4″ (13mm to 180mm) hoses.
Safe For All Types of Hoses
By rolling the edges and removing perforations and ribs on the inside portion of the embossed hose band, the PYI Hose Clamp can be used on the softest hoses without worry of damage to the underlying hose surface during installation and throughout its use.
Durable & Stable Clamping Force
The PYI Hose Clamp utilizes a durable riveting screw cage design that is machined from a single piece of 316L stainless steel which is capable of withstanding high tightening torque and internal hose pressure. Our Hose Clamps can be hand tightened up to 15.5 NM (135 in/lbs) without the screw slipping or distorting the screw cage during its installation and use providing a reliably strong and stable clamping force and a long-lasting hold that is ideal for most demanding applications.
The PYI Hose Clamp is the first hose clamp certified under the British Standards Institution (BSI) outside of Europe. Tested and BS5315:1991 certified as well as certified under ISO 9001:2015, these standards assure excellent design and manufacturing quality across the entire manufacturing process, from inception to implementation.
