  The Quality Choice of Demanding Professionals
The original patented BREEZE® aircraft worm-gear clamp with heavy strength 4-piece construction is now available in a ½ inch band width for automotive, general purpose, industrial and heavy-duty applications. This new BREEZE® clamp is a significant upgrade from common 3-piece worm-gear designs, delivering the ultimate in quality and value!
     
Compare the Best with the Rest!
     
BREEZE Stainless Steel 4-Piece Housing Design
  • Quadra-Lock® - 4 pieces locked together provide strength and stability
  • Housing guides screw to run tangent to band
  • 300 series stainless housing and saddle ‘clinched’ at 4 points virtually eliminates housing ‘lift’ and ‘twist’
  • Saddle interlocks into band for even greater strength
 
OTHER Housing Designs
  • Carbon-plated housing is inferior material susceptible to corrosion, not as strong as stainless
  • Weld design prone to rust, corrosion, and failure
  • Failure usually occurs after installation
  • Non-consistent fit, split in interlock and thinner tabs vulnerable to rupture under torque
  • No clearance between screw and housing can permit false installation torques
 
 
BREEZE Stainless Steel Bands


Concave band seals from center to outside resulting in a uniform seal
  • 300 Series Stainless
  • Arcial Slots More steel between perforations for added strength and smoother worm-gear engagement
 
OTHER Stainless Steel Bands


Straight band seals from edges to center biting into hose on installation
  • Some use type 201 or lower grade stainless steels – more prone to corrosion especially between the perforations
  • Transverse slots –
    - cause rough worm-gear engagement
    - less steel between slots means less torque strength
  • Non-uniform band thicknesses cause inconsistencies in strength
 
 
BREEZE Screws
  • Sharply defined hex angles for better grip
  • Triple header hex permits versatile installation
  • Buttressed screw thread reinforced for extra strength and smoother engagement
  • More threads per screw for increased torque strength
  • Thicker, stronger shaft
  • Shoulder prevents jamming into housing
  • Plated series uses superior yellow dichromate
 
OTHER Screws
  • Small diameter collar limits tools for installation
  • No shoulder on hex allows jamming
  • Straight threads, not reinforced
  • Rounded corners can allow hex to strip out
  • Burrs interfere with smooth tightening
  • Minimum spec plating prone to rust more quickly
 
 
BREEZE Circumferential Pressure
  • QCd to comply with military std. specs for circumferential pressure without leakage
  • Even distribution of sealing pressure with no excessive pressure points
  • Higher sealing pressure with lower applied torque
 
OTHER Circumferential Pressure
  • Leakage area under worm-gear due to possible uneven housings
  • Need higher torque to achieve same sealing pressure
  • Uneven pressure as a result of housing distortion
