Can I buy a Pipe or tube clamp (DIN 3015 clamp) in less than the required multiples? Ex. 25 or 50 PC multiples?
Yes, you can. We offer KIT versions of all our tube and pipe clamp arrangements. These kits come as a complete clamp arrangement in a plastic bag or box (depending on size0 marked with the part number. There is a slightly higher cost associated with the kitted version to account for the labor cost of Kitting the clamp.
I am looking for a 1-inch standard duty pipe clamp with a top plate and weld plate in standard threads. What is the HYDAC part number?
You would want a HRL 5 A 33.7 PP UNC. The first 3 letters tell you the clamp series. the number 5 indicates the family size of the clamp. The A tells you the arrangement. In this case a top plate, clamp pair, weld plate, and bolts. The 33.7 is the metric equivalent of a bore to hole 1” pipe, all of the bore measurements are in mm in our model codes. The PP is the clamp pair material Polypropylene, and the UNC stands for standard threads. You can also find all this information in our online catalog.
Is there a difference between a tube and pipe clamp?
Yes, there is. Pipe and tube outside diameters are measured differently. Which results in the need for different bore diameters for each. As an example an ¼ inch tube clamp would require a 0.25 “(6.4mm) bore where a ¼ pipe clamp would require a 0.54 “ (13.7mm) bore diameter. A chart can be found in our online catalog for these dimensions under the clamp section-DIN 3015 clamps.
