Default Tri Clover Clamps

For those of you who use Tri Clover Clamps I was wondering what size you use and what your setup looks like if you have pics. Also what do you usually pay for them.

Anyone interested in finding a set should see this link on the greenboard. Swagman apparently does great work and is a nice guy. He mailed me out some sanke retaining rings just for the asking on his dime no less.

1 1/2" across the flange is the common size. I bought a whole bunch a while back, and some 3 pc valves, but I don't see them coming into play any time soon. Brass QD's are really hard to beat for ease of use.

Most of my clamps are 1-1/2", some are 2", 2-1/2" and 3".
I use only Tri Clover Clamps for all my brewery connections.

Default Clamp Size's

First thank you for the kind words and you have this old man red in the face.

The size I use is 1 1/2 sanitary and the reason I say sanitary is because there is another 1 1/2 out there called I line.

A few years ago before I knew the difference I purchased a big box of 1 1/2 that turned out to be I line and they will not fit a sanitary fitting such as a end caps.

A quick way to tell the difference is the width of the groove in the clamp. A Sanitary will measure 1/4 inch across and the I line will measure 3/8. This is flat area inside the clamp.

Hope this helps

God Bless

Dominus Vobiscum

Swagman
