Solutions: Clamping

360° Stepless Ear Clamps

360° Stepless® Design Ear Clamps Meet 3-A Sanitary Standard 62-02 Requirements

Effective November 2010, 3-A Sanitary Standard 62-02 for Hose Assemblies requires assemblies which are CIP (cleaning in process) capable. Worm gear clamps do not meet this requirement. If your product adheres to the 3-A Sanitary Standard 62-02 and contains hose assemblies, the 360° Stepless Ear Clamps will keep you in compliance. In addition, the 360° seal is lower cost and leak-proof with better clamping performance than worm gear clamps.


  • 360°Stepless Design – no steps or gaps on inner circumference
  • Narrow band, concentrated seal compression
  • Specially formed strip edges reduce the risk of damage to the part being clamped
  • Lightweight design
  • Tampering is visible
