The ears of these clamps do not have a dimple and nearly double the clamping range, compared to the one ear clamp. Two ears provide a degree of elasticity to accommodate changes in size of the parts being joined, such as that which may be caused by thermal expansion or vibration. Installation techniques are similar to those for one ear clamps, but the force applied when closing the second ear may react against the opposing closed ear and make a second crimping operation necessary. For perfect sealing, the ears must be adequately closed during installation.
