Strut Channel Pipe Clamps
316 Stainless Steel
Strut Clamps, Pipe Clamps, or Pipe Supports in 316 Stainless Steel for corrosion resistance and durability. Also known as Rigid Conduit Clamps, these strut parts are available in a variety of sizes and materials.
Stainless steel is used primarily for long lasting applications, due to its corrosion-resistant nature and durability. Scratching or burring the metal will not create surface rust as the corrosion resistance exists within the metal itself. Stainless steel is a soft metal due to the low carbon content, therefore most stainless steel bolts are cold-formed and not heat treated or thru-hardened. Cold forming and threading causes stainless steel bolts to become slightly magnetic, some fasteners will be more magnetic than others depending on size and how quick the cold forming process is. Stainless steel fasteners are typically a clean silver color, which also makes them common in finishing and decorative applications. Stainless Steel should never be used with aluminum, corrosion may occur. Stainless steel is available in several grades. The 316 grade of stainless steel is used and recommended for applications in severe, harsh or marine environments. Its corrosion resistance is greater than 18-8 stainless, which is why we recommend using 316 stainless steel fasteners for salt water application. It is important to remember that even the salt in the air near a body of salt water can do damage to dry applications, so 316 is the material of choice.
Pipe Measurements: All pipes are measured from the inside diameter. A four inch pipe means that the internal diameter of the pipe is four inches. Pipe Clamp sizes are listed based on
pipe size. This means that a four inch pipe clamp would fit a four inch pipe. Pipe clamps from Albany County Fasteners will fit a pipe size of the same name up to Schedule 80 in Black Pipe, PVC Pipe, and Copper Pipe.
