The performance of a hose clamp is measured using a Polar Diagram.
The final result of the Polar Diagram is a graphic representation of the force exerted by the hose clamp on each sector of the dynamometer.
The diagram quantifies in daN the force which the clamp exerts on each of the...
One factor which is very important when discussing the application of a hose clamp is tightening torque.
Tightening torque is the force which should be applied when tightening a screw or nut. Torque is normally expressed using the unit of force multiplied by the distance in Newton-Metres...
