Band-It secures header-box enclosures while in transit

Band-It secures header-box enclosures while in transit

Band-It heavy-duty stainless steel strapping from Banding & ID Solutions Africa is being used by P-pro Construction of Gauteng for a specialist transportation function.

A specialist construction and project management company, P-pro uses Band-It strapping to secure header box enclosures while being transported to power stations. The header boxes or cassettes are used to enclose header pipes in the boilers in order to prevent heat loss, and also to act as an insulator so as to maintain the correct temperature of the header pipes, explains MD Alwyn Carstens.

Banding & ID Solutions Africa Sales representative Matthew Campbell comments that Band-It Grade 304 stainless steel strapping is popular for such industrial applications precisely due to its superior yield and high tensile strength, which results in maximum clamping strength.

“Light-duty strap is not suitable here due to the significant weight of the header-box enclosures,” comments Carstens. “These enclosures have to be strapped securely. If the incorrect strapping is used, it increases the risk of losing the load while in transit.”

Campbell explains that all sizes of Band-It strap feature fully-rounded smooth edges for safety and ease of installation. “A double wrap clamp can be made for even greater strength, threading the band through the Ear-Lokt buckle twice,” he advises.

The Band & Buckle solution from Band-It can be formed easily to suit any diameter. It is available in thicknesses of 0.51 mm and 0.76 mm, and in widths of 6.5 mm, 9.5 mm, 12.7 mm, 15.8 mm and 19.7 mm. Packed in convenient 30 m rolls, it can be applied with a C001, C003 or C075 tool.

The solution is also sufficiently flexible in that 50 m and 100 m coils can be made to order, in accordance with specific customer requirements, Campbell points out. “Our relationship with P-pro is another example of a niche application where the Band-It product really come into its own, in conjunction with our dedicated aftermarket support and customer service,” he concludes.
