The joint is as durable as the hose
The fitting together of the clamp, hose and hose nipple is
decisive for the tightness of a hose joint. Kerko masters
two of these factors: the manufacture of high-quality
clamps and hose nipples. A proficiently performed Kerko
joint is as durable as the hose to be joined.
The Kerko clamp is pressed with the hose uniformly
throughout againts the hose nipple in the joint. The yield
strength of the clamp materials is more then double
compared with the conventional materials. The faultiess
function of the tightening elements has been tested in
laboratory and working conditions.
The durable fastening of the hose to the Kerko hose nipple
is based, except on the materials also on the adequate
design of the detent pins of the hose nipple, on careful
rounding of the edges in order to prevent the hose from
taking damage, as well as on the appropriate dimensioning
as for the installation.
