Magnetic Fixing Systems

The FA-ST Magclamp magnetic fixing system is a quick and easy solution for supporting hydraulic & flexible hoses, water pipes/hose pipes and plastic and metal rigid pipework. Instantly clamp pipes to any steel frame work, tanks, vehicles & trailers, racking, ducting, machines etc. to keep footways and roadways clear, reduce trip hazards and help prevent loss of liquid during fluid transfer which could result in environmental damage.

When transferring liquid from one container to another via a flexible hose, the magnetic hose clamp can be used to secure pipe assemblies in the required positions for suction and return lines, keeping the hoses neat & tidy and with a 90º holder can be used to direct the fluid into the receiving container. Ideal for use ‘on site’ when temporary hose assemblies are required for filtering oils & fuels, re-filling plant and machinery with oil & diesel, installing pipe work and for keeping work areas hazard free and tidy.

The magnetic hose and pipe clamp can also be used for the temporary installation of a pipe run, no drilling or bolting required, no more cable ties or bits of rope: a neat, tidy and quick installation can be achieved. The Magclamp© can also be used for holding hydraulic lines, steel, copper or plastic pipes in place to enable a permanent fixing to be made.

Electrical cables can also be held off the floor to remove a trip hazard, particularly useful in warehouses, workshops, factories and construction sites. Ideal when working in wet areas to keep electric cables dry and tidy. Fasten cables and pipe work securely for temporary or permanent installation.

To reduce the risk to staff and the public of trips and falls, consider how easy it is to remove the obstacle from walkways, wherever there are steel supports the Magclamp can be used.

Reduce the risk of oil and fuel spills by securing hoses and pipes to tanks and machinery.

Technical Data

Ferrite magnets can be used up to +180°C but may start to show some signs of weakening (demagnetization) when used in sub-zero conditions e.g. -10°C to -20°C. The design and application determines the actual optimal operating temperature range.

The optimum pull force of the magnet is released when the surface is made of steel and is flat, clean and has a thick cross section. For example a magnet may exert a force of 25kg on a 1mm thick piece of steel metal but exert a force 250kg on a sheet of steel plate greater than 10mm thick.

Health & Safety

  • Do NOT use in explosive environments

  • Very powerful magnet: Handle with care

  • Do NOT give these magnets to children

  • May affect operation of some watches

  • Magnets can adversely affect pacemakers

  • Do NOT allow magnets to fly together: They may shatter

  • Do NOT place within 300mm of credit cards, floppy discs or hard drives

Measure the OD of the pipe or cable and decide on the clamp diameter required e.g. A 3/4" internal bore hydraulic hose will measure approximately 30mm (depending on manufacturer) so a 26-32mm clamp will fit. Based on your application, choose between the close coupled, extended 100mm straight or 90 degree options. For flexible pipes we advise to space every 1 to 2 metres for parallel runs.

For plastic, copper and steel pipes 2-3 metres is ideal.

If suspending flexible pipes or cables from above then consider the optimum distance between clamps with regard to the 'sag' created by the hose or cable.
