Worm gear clamps
, also referred to as worm drive clamps or screw clamps, are used to attach and seal a hose tube onto another fitting. Screw clamps are often used for hoses with ½ inch diameter and above. Screw clamps have bands usually made of stainless steel or galvanized steel with toothed patterns for the screw. The clamp goes around the neck of the hose with one end between the band and the screw. The screw turns and causes the band to grip the hose tube tighter. Worm gear clamps used to moderate pressures, in designs used for automotive and home applications. They are also applied in agriculture for anhydrous and ammonia hoses. Pairs of worm gear clamps on a short rubber
tube can be used to form a no-hub-band that is often used to attach sections of piping for domestic wastewater. No hub band can also be used as a flexible coupler for other pipes.
