Ace Race Parts Aluminum/Stainless Combination V-Band Assemblies are precision CNC machined from 6061-T6 Aluminum in an ISO 9001 certified facility and feature a 304 Stainless V-Band Clamp, a "Male + O-Ring" style Aluminum V-Band Flange and a "Female" style 304 Stainless V-Band Flange.
The seating surface (the area where the two flanges meet) of our Aluminum/Stainless Combination 3.5" V-Band Flanges utilize an interlocking flange design to create an air-tight, leak free seal. In extremely high temperature applications, where a Buna O-Ring will not be suitable, the interlocking style flange design allows for a leak free seal without the use of the O-Ring.
The weld side of our Aluminum/Stainless Combination V-Band Flanges are CNC machined with a counterbore to allow the matching tube size material to slip into the V-Band Flange and be welded in place with proper alignment. The V-Band Flange's counterbore is machined to be 0.065" wide and allows for the inside diameter (ID) of 16 gauge wall thickness tube to align perfectly with the ID of the V-Band Flange without any restrictions or reductions.

Clamp Material Type
Please note: Our V-Band clamps are supplied with a metal lock nut and a non-locking hex nut. The metal lock nut is a locking-style nut and is not intended to be used during mock-up. Attempting to thread, remove, and re-thread the lock nut may cause damage to the "T-Bolt" section of the clamp. In some cases, excessive force can damage and/or break the "T-Bolt" section of the clamp. If you intend to use our clamps during the mock-up process please use a non-locking hex nut.
Ace Race Parts is not responsible for damage caused to our clamps due to the use of the locking-style nut during mock-up or removal.
