Anti Corrosion Technology (ACT) Clamp

The STAUFF ACT Clamp is an innovative design solution for the installation of pipework where anti corrosion properties are paramount (e.g. offshore oil and gas exploration).

It's design, based on the tried and tested STAUFF Clamp according to DIN 3015, offers installation time reduction and long term cost savings due to extended service intervals.

Throughout its development, STAUFF ACT Clamps have been subject to stringent anti corrosive testing at our in-house facilities in Werdohl, Germany.

In order to ensure credibility of the product, the development process has also involved independent testing. To achieve this the services of Sheffield Hallam University, Centre for Corrosion Technology have been utilized.

In a controlled laboratory environment, a salt spray test has been applied to various clamp configurations holding AISI 316 stainless steel tubing. Independent field test samples, based on a rig in the Dutch sector of the North Sea, have also been assessed at the Sheffield Hallam University facility. Both independent tests have recorded positive results in favour of the attributes of the new anti corrosive technology.

Fully detailed test reports are available upon request.

Key Features
