The clamps can be used to repair the following pipe types:

  • Ductile Iron (DI)
  • Cast Iron (CI)
  • Steel (St.)
  • Asbestos Cement (AC)
  • PE coated steel
  • PVC*
  • GRP*
  • PE*

* If pipe tapping clamps are to be used on plasticpipes, please always contact Romacon or a Romacon distributor for more information regarding the application and restrictions on these pipe types.

Material specification:

  • All metal parts: stainless steel AISI 304 or AISI 316L.
  • Sockets and nipples are threaded according to ISO 7/DIN or BSP. Special designed outlets are available on request. Please contact your distributor. 
  • The outlets are 100 % air tested after welding.
  • Metal parts have been deburred and are passivated to restore the corrosion resistance to its original state after the welding process.
  • Single band (one section) or double band (two sections). For detailed working ranges please see our price-list.
  • Standard certified rubber gaskets EPDM or NBR. The rubber is tapered and has a waffle pattern.
  • Seamless rubber lining for every clamp diameter.
  • Bridge plate is vulcanized into the rubber gasket.
  • U-shaped lifter bars.
  • Stainless steel, electrolytic zinc plated nuts to prevent galling.
  • Stainless steel washers.
  • No loose parts that may get lost during installation.
  • No special tools required: a simple wrench will do the job.
  • Special tape is used to fix the rubber gasket to the stainless steel band. This tape is flexible and reinforced with glassfibre thread to withstand hot and humid conditions and guarantee a long storage capability.
  • Under most circumstances the clamps can be installed without releasing the pressure on the pipe.
