Tension clamp is one type of single tension hardware that used for completing the tensional connection on a conductor
or cable, and it provides mechanical support to the insulator and conductor. It is usually used with fitting like clevis and
socket eye on the overhead transmission lines or distribution lines.
Bolted type tension clamp is also called dead end strain clamp or quadrant strain clamp.
What are the different types of tension clamps?
In principle, two types are available: Wedge tension clamps, are made of two forged bodies connected by a hinge with
coresponding r wedges. These can be with or without jumper connection.
You can connect it at the straight point and even on the twisted sections of the conductor cable.
Apart from being physically strong, tension clamp is highly flexible. This is why it can support the twisted section up to 90 degrees.
Before you buy and use tension clamp, you should confirm what it is made of. The material must be compatible with the
conductor application. This property is vital as it will determine how strong the tension clamp fastening fitting is.
Our tension clamps are made of high-grade aluminum and cast iron materials.
The most attractive feature of these materials is their strength and electrical conductivity.
They are physically strong while at the same time compatible with different conductors.
Aluminum is also capable of functioning well under different conditions without degrading or getting damaged. It can
withstand extreme temperature ranges.
Alloys of aluminum can also be used as long as they meet the technical requirements of the tension clamp.
The surface treatment of this fitting is hot-dip galvanizing. According to the corrosive environment, the zinc layer thickness
should be adjusted within a certain range.
