• Pipe clamps or pipe fixings are best described as a support mechanism for suspended pipes, either horizontal top or vertical adjacent to a surface.
  • They are vital to ensure that all pipes are securely fixed and also allow any pipe movement or expansion that may occur.
  • Pipe fixing failure can cause significant and costly damage to a building so it is important to do it correctly.
  • Standard clamps are typically secured using two screws, one on each side of the clamp. They can be with or without a primer depending on the application.
  • Standard clamps work by fixing two screws, one on each side of the clamp. Red washers are placed to prevent screws from slipping during the assembly process.

DG5 Pipe Clamp Specifications

Tork DG5 Pipe Clamp is a pivotal component in securing piping systems, designed to provide a robust and reliable support mechanism. This particular model is distinctive as it comes without rubber insulation. These clamps are engineered to accommodate both horizontal and vertical pipe installations, ensuring the stability of the piping structure. They are vital for preventing unwanted movement or expansion of pipes which could lead to significant damage.

The standard installation of DG5 pipe clamps involves two screws, one on each side, which can either support a primer depending on the application or be directly attached to the piping system. These screws, when combined with the clamp's design, prevent slippage during assembly. The red washers included with the clamps are another feature that adds to the secure installation by preventing the screws from loosening over time.

The specifications of the DG5 Pipe Clamp also include a double locking system with a low Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH) content, which adheres to ZEK 01.4-08, category 2 standards. This ensures that the product is safe and meets regulatory requirements for hazardous chemicals. In addition to safety, the clamps offer time-saving and easy assembly features, incorporating low values of PAHs for environmental protection. The locking screw is designed to prevent loss with the addition of a plastic washer for added security.

Sizes of DG5 Pipe Clamp

DG5 Pipe Clamps are available in a wide range of sizes to accommodate various pipe diameters, providing a versatile solution for different requirements. The sizes are measured in both millimeters and inches, ranging from the smallest size suitable for 16-20 mm or 3/8" pipes, up to the largest size intended for 165-175 mm or 6" pipes.

Each DG5 pipe clamp size is specified along with the corresponding boss (M), width and thickness of the clamp, type of connection screw (C), and the maximum recommended load in Newtons (N). For instance, the 16-20 mm clamp size has an M8 boss, a 20+1.5 mm width, is designed for an M6-25 connection screw, and can support up to 1000 N of load. On the other enæd of the spectrum, the 165-175 mm clamp size, with an M10 boss, 25+1,5 mm width, and M6-30 connection screw, supports a maximum load of 1500 N.

Technical Features of DG5 Pipe Clamps

The DG5 Pipe Clamps boast several technical features that make them an industry standard for securing pipes. Their robust zinc construction, compliant with DIN 4109, provides durability and resistance to corrosion, ensuring a long-lasting clamp solution for any piping system. The clamps have a zinc coating thickness of 5-10 µm, enhancing their resilience to environmental factors.

They are also equipped with EPDM rubber, known for its excellent heat and aging resistance, for sound insulation purposes. This material can withstand a wide temperature range, maintaining its properties between -50°C and +110°C, which is essential for environments with varying temperatures. The Shore A hardness of the EPDM rubber is rated at 50 ± 5, which reflects its capacity to absorb vibrations and dampen noise effectively.

Furthermore, the DG5 Pipe Clamps are designed with profile temperature resistance in mind, making them suitable for a variety of climates and operating conditions. The locking screw mechanism of the clamps, augmented by the plastic washer, ensures that once installed, the clamp provides a secure hold, minimizing the risk of slippage and the need for frequent maintenance. Each clamp is manufactured to ensure ease of installation, with a focus on reducing labor time and facilitating a swift assembly process. The combination of technical features and the range of available sizes makes the DG5 Pipe Clamp a reliable choice for pipe installations demanding precision, safety, and efficiency.
