Table G = GRIP connecting system for CLIP - LINE® hoses
The GRIP connecting system is one of the most important assembly aids not only for hoses but also for bellow expansion joints, expansion bellows and filters. It is very simple technically and fulfills 3 important functions :
(1) it does not destroy the hose no matter how much it is stretched; (2) it seals very well and (3) it is resistant to tension+pressure.
Normal hose clips are incapable of adequately clamping and sealing CLIP - LINE® hoses. The GRIP is a bridging hose clip which extends over the helical clip at the point at which it straddles it inside a closely fitting bridge. In this way the clip is not s queezed and the hose jacket is clamped tightly around the tube adapters to the right and left of the clip.
Sealing tightness and resistance of a CLIP - LINE® hose coupling are possible in 6 different levels :
