Our all new Aluminum/Stainless combination V-Band Assemblies utilize a 304 stainless clamp, a "Male + O-Ring" style Aluminum Flange and a "Female" style 304 Stainless flange. Our "Male + O-Ring/Female" flanges have an interlocking seating surface, including an all new "Male + O-Ring" design to ensure proper alignment during installation. The butt-weld side of the flanges offer a small groove that allows the flange and tube to be aligned better prior to welding. Each assembly includes one (1) t-bolt style clamp and two (2) interlocking flanges.
|Material Type||304 Stainless|
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. The thread pitch of our hex nuts, lock nuts and the threaded portion of the "T-Bolt" section of the clamp is 5/16"-24.
Note: The photo of the three types of nuts includes a nylon lock nut. This type of nut is not always supplied with our v-bands. The two main types of nuts supplied with each v-band assembly or clamp is the metal non-locking hex nut (finish hex nut) and the metal lock nut. If you would like a nylon lock nut to be supplied with your order please contact us.
