An industrial equipment manufacturer previously used bolt clamps and welds to connect an Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Cooler to its mounting bracket, but an EGR is subject to extreme temperature changes, vibration from the engine and moving vehicle, as well as exposure to corrosive environments. To ensure the EGR Cooler stayed in place, they turned to BAND-IT for a solution...

Two ULTRA-LOK bands wrap the hose and fitting and are tensioned with the hand-held, battery operated UL4000-D, allowing flexibility in installation – from field to factory. The tool provides consistent tension on each band resulting in a leak-free connection. For this customer, repairing the hoses in the field cuts down on costs and waste from discarded hoses, something he just couldn’t do with crimp ferrlues.

Stainless Steel bands are used to secure the blocks onto a pipeline during installation and the blocks then allow secondary lines to be laid at the same time while maintaining position. Subsea companies depend on the consistency and strength of BAND-IT products for their harsh duty lifespan in salt water environments.

Vehicle manufacturers use a quick connector and wire mesh shield to minimize the effects of Electromagnetic Interference. With previous solutions, the wire mesh could bunch or gather in one area creating an inconsistent installation. The reduced diameter clamp from BAND-IT can minimize the effects and provide a tight fit with a single SKU.
