Adjustable dome clamp for hazmat response
Published:  27 September, 2016

A clamp that can be adjusted to suit different types of dome lids has been designed by DQE for hazmat responders.

The new tool is designed to prevent hazardous chemicals from leaking out of a tanker truck that has been involved in an incident such as a roll over.

Although traditional dome clamps are designed with central pressure plates that hold down the dome lid, many tanker trucks now carry seals that are not located in the middle of the dome.

The DQE Adjustable Dome Clamp features a unique offset pressure plate that creates an ideal relation to the exact location of the dome seal, effectively stopping any leaks.

The patented design is fully adjustable and quickly installed.
