Reliably connecting tubes with Ganter 29 March 2023

Adding to its standard range of tube clamp connectors, Ganter has recently released new high-performance clamp connectors made from glass fibre-reinforced polyamide, available in diverse configurations.

These new connectors can withstand temperatures up to 212°F (100°C) and are used in applications where corrosion resistance is important, where weight must be reduced or where the visual appearance is a significant design factor. The components are available in both black and grey. Also, the connectors are specially designed to allow for frequent modification, even without tools.

Ganter insists all clamp versions share the same dimensional accuracy and high-quality manufacturing. The connectors are designed so they fully encompass typical construction tubes to create a nonpositive clamping connection. The tubes are fixed in place with socket cap screws and nuts of stainless steel or with a hand lever. Depending on the tightening torque of the screw connections, Ganter also lists the axial extraction force, the radial torsional moment and the rotation moment if an articulated axis is present.

Ganter offers the plastic tube connectors as two-way, flanged, base plate, T-angle, straight, swivel and jointed swivel connectors in various dimensions.
