Introducing the NEW Dearman Sleeve Clamp

June 30, 2015

In THE DEARMAN SYSTEM tradition, we're excited to introduce a faster and safer way to install sleeves and fittings - Dearman Sleeve Clamps. Leveraging our industry-leading clamping technology, we've built these extreme-duty clamps to handle welded sleeves up to ¾" thick and up to 70,000 PSI tensile strength. Unlike the common and unsafe application of a bottle jack and chain, our purpose-built clamps provide virtually 360 degrees of clamping force. Easy to operate hydraulic closure system makes set up and removal easy and quick. Why risk the chance for flying jacks and falling sleeves when finally, there's a better solution?
