Pump Clamp Breaks – But Why?
This photo shows a broken stainless steel clamp on a Sta-Rite Max-E Glas pump that resulted in major water damage to an equipment room. I’ve been told that Sta-Rite has been using clamps like this for a long time, therefore it is possible that this clamp is quite old. But look carefully at the photo. Do you see any indication of why the part failed?
