Sawyer’s Chain Clamp

Model 260

The Chain Clamp is designed and manufactured with welders in mind. This adjustable pipe clamp is your go-to tool for achieving high-quality welds through precise alignment. Whether you’re working on pipe-to-pipe fit-ups or aligning pipes ranging from 4” to 72”, the Chain Clamp is designed to meet all your needs, offering a one-size-fits-all solution.

Unmatched Versatility and Strength

The Sawyer Chain Clamp stands out with its remarkable ability to reform pipes up to Schedule 40 and align pipes up to Schedule 80. Despite its powerful capabilities, it maintains a lightweight construction, making it easy to transport and use on-site. This external line-up clamp can even function as a single jackscrew clamp, allowing it to replace multiple bulky cage clamps, thereby saving you both time and money.

Double the Muscle with the Double Chain Clamp

For those tasks that require extra strength, the Double Chain Clamp is your ideal choice. Capable of aligning and reforming pipes and vessels up to 6 meters (20’) in diameter and up to Schedule 80, it handles the toughest jobs with ease. If no reforming is needed, it can align pipes over Schedule 80, making it incredibly versatile. The heavy-duty jack bars and main blocks are designed to tackle even the most challenging reforming jobs. Additionally, the clamp comes with an optional level and support device or a pull lift (come along) for larger pipes, ensuring you have the right tool for every job. Each clamp is equipped with a torque wrench to ensure the correct pressure is applied, safeguarding the integrity of your pipe and clamp.

Precision Alignment for Every Project

The adaptable jackscrews of the Sawyer Chain Clamp allow for proper alignment of tees, elbows, or flanges, enabling you to weld without removing the alignment clamp. With this level of precision, you can achieve alignment within 1/64” for both internal and external pipe diameters. Available in both steel and stainless steel, the Sawyer Chain Clamp is built to last and handle a wide range of applications.

When aligning pipe for welding, there aren’t many options superior to the Sawyer Chain Clamp. Experience the difference in quality, precision, and ease of use with Sawyer’s Model 260 Chain Clamp.
