B-B® 3 Flat Band clamp: male / female pipe connection

This clamp, inspired from the B-B® 2 clamp, has been developed to meet low-cost connection requirements on automotive exhaust lines. Its innovative design (patented) gives it excellent weight/performance and cost/performance ratios. It consists of an integral band, a screw and a nut.

The pipe connection requires 2 slots to be cut in the female pipe (CAILLAU “H” design or “Z” type).
