What you need to know about Chain Clamps for Pipes

What do they do?

These chain clamps for pipes can reform and align pipes between 1 inch and 54 inch (Single Chain) and 10 inch to 240 inch (Double Chain) in diameter. Typically, chain clamps have enough room under the jack bar to use an arc welding gun. There are accessories to this type of clamp which can help the welder to find the proper alignment point.

When you are aligning pipes, it is important to have the right tool for the job. Small imperfections might not seem like a big deal, but they can have big repercussions. If you want the most versatile pipe alignment option and the best quality pipe welds, always use a chain clamp for pipes.

The versatile design provides the ability to accurately fit-up, weld and grind joints without removing the clamp.

Designed to offer the welder the best of both worlds

Firstly, this chain clamp has the strength and ability to align and lightly reform pipes, and secondly, lightweight design and construction for ease of use. The feet of the clamp can be positioned equally around the chain to achieve an accurate pipe alignment in very little time.

Why are Chain Clamps better than Traditional methods?

Traditional methods for aligning heavy wall pipe, such as ratchet cable pullers, lugs and bottle jacks are time consuming and inconsistent in the results they achieve, making them unsuitable for the majority of critical alignment applications.

One chain clamp can fit up a variety of sizes of pipes, elbows, tees, flanges end caps and most other pipe fittings (using the level and support device supplied).

The heavy duty high rise Jackbars and main block provide the strength to reform the pipe either side of the weld gap to eliminate “Hi-Lo”, whilst enabling the welder to weld the entire circumference of the pipe.
