Small Tubing Clamp
Fits over tubing to control flow rates or to crimp it shut. Fits tubing up to 1/2" O.D.
Makes transferring beer a much simpler process. They cost so little, so I bought two. Good thing I did, because I snapped one in half on transfer day. It's a solid piece but it is hard plastic... so I can break..
These seem to be excessively brittle. I've now had three break, after a few months of use. At first, I thought it was the plastic's reaction to sanitizer that was causing the brittleness (yes, I used to leave the clamp on the tubing, when sanitizing with StarSan or SaniClean). I quit doing that -- I remove the clamp before sanitizing the tubing. And, yet, another clamp snapped off yesterday, in use.
Nothing special here, just an item that works as expected
Just starting into wine making and found this equipment supplier. Great equipment and fast delivery.
I actually needed a larger clamp which I found on another site. This small one which I purchased works fine but I wish Northern Brewer also offered the larger clamp. Cheers
