Serv-Clip® Hot Tap Connection

The Serv-Clip® tube measuring connection is used to add a test point on an existing hydraulic circuit within 3 minutes—no cutting of pipes, even if the system is pressurized to 9,100 psi (630 bar). Then carry out your measurements: pressure, flow rate, leakage, temperature, oil sampling or connect a variety of measuring devices.

Required tools for installation: 6mm allen wrench and jaw wrench SW22

Models: Serv-Clip® Type 1 (Installation on pressurized pipes): Used for sensors with G1/4″ thread

Serv-Clip® Type 2 (Installation on non-pressurized pipes): Used for sensors with G3/8″ thread.

Diameters available :

  • Metric: 10 – 42 mm
  • Tube: 3/8 – 2 inches (9.5 – 50.8mm)
  • Pipe: 1/4 – 3 inches (6.3 – 76.2mm)
  • Over 3 inches (88.9mm) with adaptor SC-XE-607

The flow rate and leakage sensor functions through the calorimetric principle and can be installed with the Serv-Clip tube measuring connection Serv-Clip® (type 2) in 5 Minutes without cutting pipelines and only requiring the pressure of the hydraulic system to be removed while the needle is piercing the pipe or tube and while the sensor is being installed. The output signal is 4 to 20mA and is calibrated according to your requirements. With the Flow Rate Sensor (from 0.164 to 16.4 feet per second or from 0.05 to 5 meters per second). The sensors are available in stainless steel and plastic covers:

  • Monitoring flow rate and wear of pumps
  • Operability of accumulators
  • Filter transmittance
  • Heat exchangers
  • Nozzle flow rate
  • Speed of hydraulic motors

With the Leakage sensor (from 0.164 to 16.4 feet per second or from 0.05 to 5 meters per second):

  •  Seal damage and leakage identification
