While welding technology has advanced in recent years, methods of fitting pipe remained primitive. Chain Clamps are versatile: each clamp can fit-up elbows, tees, flanges, and other pipe fittings. All carbon steel Chain Clamps are zinc plated to resist spatter and corrosion. On the average, one Chain Clamp costs about 40% less and weighs about 77% less than the required number of cage clamps to cover the same range of pipe diameter.
