TRIDON SmartSeal® – a new way to think about connections 26 April 2016

A big challenge when sealing air and coolant connections is being able to counteract thermal expansion and contraction caused by under hood temperature variations. TRIDON® states that its TRIDON self-adjusting, stainless steel SmartSeal® non-perforated/embossed clamp solves this problem.

SmartSeal® forms a unique 360 degree seal around joints and prevents leakage of fluid and air when subjected to temperature extremes and vibration, thanks to patent pending SmartLiner technology.

The SmartLiner is a spring liner made of high-quality stainless steel and is integrated inside the clamp. Designed to be smart, the thin gauge steel expands and contracts around the hose with temperature changes. The clamp rides on top of the lubricated liner, distributing pressure more evenly around the hose.

John Mills, vice-president at TRIDON®, comments: “It’s not just a simple solution – it’s a really smart one. TRIDON SmartSeal non-perforated/embossed clamps were designed in response to the leakage attributed to thermal cycling and to meet today’s challenging lighter weight and space requirements. With decades of product development experience, we offer the best and most innovative sealing solutions in the industry and will work as an extension of our customers engineering departments.”

TRIDON offers full service development and engineering support, from design to launch, with ongoing value engineering proposals. The company’s fully equipped laboratory makes it possible to fully satisfy the most demanding customer applications and is an additional support for R&D.
