We recently had a customer call to tell us that one of our hose clamps had failed. Naturally, this sent us immediately into “red alert” mode as our clamps simply do not break if used correctly. What followed were several back and forth phone calls with our engineering people and theirs, as well as a request from us to have the broken clamp sent immediately overnight for evaluation.
Upon receiving the sample it was quickly apparent that the clamp that had broken was not ours, but actually from another supplier. This led to a discussion on the different types of materials that are used in the manufacturing of hose clamps, and the customer suggested that it would be helpful if we reference this information here. We will be posting a series on hose clamps materials and what you may want to take into consideration when selecting the right clamp(s) for your applications. Stay tuned!
