Quick-release equipment clamp - Witte Inc.

July 17, 2011
The clamp works on process-equipment access panels of aluminum, steel, and other materials.

The clamp mounts permanently on process equipment with a proprietary yoke and pin assembly. Users can release tension quickly with one hand without unscrewing or dismounting. When returned to the closed position, the retractable clamp automatically restores the amount of tension previously applied.
The clamp supplies up to 750 lb clamping force and works with steel, aluminum, plastic, wood and other materials of various thicknesses. It is available in cast aluminum, FDA-approved stainless steel, and heavy-duty forged metal.
