Increased flexibility for installing Stauff ACT clamps thanks to the use of safety locking plates and stacking bolts

Stauff ACT clamps are a solution for the installation of pipework in applications where efficient protection against corrosion is essential. The development of crevice corrosion on pipelines – a known and documented problem in the oil and gas industry – can be prevented long-term. This solution also generates enormous savings potential, thanks to extended maintenance and service intervals.

The combined usage of specially designed SIG safety locking plates and AF stacking bolts, which Stauff is presenting for the first time in combination with ACT clamps at the Caspian Oil & Gas exhibition in Baku, Azerbaijan, now also makes it possible to mount multiple clamp bodies of the identical size directly on top of one another. The company is responding to multiple customer requests to complete the product line in this way.

Installers and users benefit from the increased flexibility in the design and layout of pipework systems, because several lines running close together no longer have to be positioned side by side.

As with all recommended metal components in connection with ACT clamps, the safety locking plates as well as the stacking bolts are also of 1.4401 or 1.4571 materials. At Stauff, in contrast to regular stainless steel components, contamination through metallic and non-metallic particles during production, processing and storage is virtually impossible.
