Elesa introduces new ranges of protective caps and plugs
Elesa says that its new, ex-stock, protective caps and plugs solve protection problems simply, from cushioning pipe ends to preventing loss of fluids or the ingress of foreign matter. They are said to provide tough barriers to match industrial environments ranging from clean workstations to messy outdoor applications, protecting people and equipment against damage.
The new caps and plugs have been added to the company’s NCT, TX and TNX ranges, where the NCT high grade polyethylene caps are intended to cover tube ends. They also serve to protect against impact, for transit protection or for use on frameworks and pipe structures. Sizes range from an ID of 4mm to an ID of 114.3mm.
TX series threaded plugs in red polyethylene are designed for installation by hand in production and assembly phases of pneumatic and hydraulic systems to protect against dust and humidity. They are also said to be of value in the packing and transit of oil containing equipment such as engines, gearboxes, transfer cases, motors and drives to prevent leakage. TX-G versions also serve on components that require painting where Elesa’s NBR gasket offers an additional masking area. Sizes of the TX series range from M8 to M26 (G1/8 to G3).
The TNX series in yellow polyethylene features an NBR O ring seal and is intended for tool installation by screwdriver, spanner or socket – sizes M8 to M52 (G1/8 to G2).
