Ideal Engineers Revolutionary Smart Clamp

IDEAL-TRIDON® Brand SmartSeal™ Clamp is the Next Generation Joint Sealing Technology

SMYRNA, Tennessee—Ideal Clamp Products, Inc., leading designer and manufacturer of IDEAL-TRIDON brand worm gear, hose and specialty clamps, announced the launch of a revolutionary new product, SmartSeal. SmartSeal is a worm gear clamp featuring the patent-pending SmartLiner™, a self-compensating spring liner that forms a steady 360 degree seal in response to changing temperatures and vibrational movement. The SmartLiner’s trough-shaped design creates higher pressure loading compared to conventional worm gear, increasing resistance against leaks. SmartSeal is currently available in sizes covering clamping ranges from 26 mm to 148 mm in all stainless steel construction.

“SmartSeal is our most advanced technology,” said Mike Reese, Ideal’s president and CEO. “Its SmartLiner provides a high-pressure seal that’s critical in heavy-duty applications at about a third the weight of traditional heavy duty clamps. Based on early feedback from OEM customers we’ve tested it with, we believe SmartSeal will play a big role in meeting higher fuel efficiency standards.”
