Anti Corrosion Technology Clam
ACT Clamps from STAUFF protect against crevice corrosion in salt water. Designed for use with stainless steel tube and pipe, ACT clamps can be used for both underwater and top-side applications. Crevice corrosion is a problem when seawater is trapped in gaps between conventional clamps and the pipe or tube. ACT Clamps utilize anti-corrosion elastomer strips to firmly hold the tube while eliminating gaps seawater can penetrate. The clamp body provides UV stability and is resistant against seawater, rain and oil. STAUFF ACT clamps have been extensively field-tested in the Dutch North Sea.
