IVP Bulkhead U-Clamp, KF-50 Vacuum Fittings, ISO-KF Flange Size NW-50, Aluminum
These Bulkhead U-Clamps are locally made here in the USA at Ideal Vacuum Products. They are especially good for our USA made Ideal Vacuum Cube Chambers and other holed bulkhead chambers as well. These unique U-Clamps allow fast and efficient one-handed installation with a minimum of fasteners, particularly in crowded assemblies (see middle graphic above). The collared yoke design permits stable, "drop-free" draping of the fitting over a connection, while screws are inserted. Typically, two-piece bulkhead clamps have thinner bodies which cause levering of the clamp half when screws are placed and hand tightened; this causes inconsistent pressure along the seal when the fitting is fully tightened. The improved, thicker body of our clamps eliminates this levering action, which means better seals with fewer parts, in less time.
