To cap it all

For more than 35 years, leading manufacturer of hydraulic system components Custom Fittings has relied on plugs and caps supplied by Essentra Components


Pneumatic and hydraulic systems obviously rely on system integrity and zero leakage in order to deliver what they are designed to do, and much care goes into ensuring that every potential source of leakage is dealt with accordingly from the point of component manufacture to installation, maintenance and repair. Custom Fittings is a leading UK manufacturer of stainless steel hydraulic hydraulic fittings and adaptors, and in order to protect threads, both internal and external, as well as flanges on its finished products, has now been using protective caps supplied by Essentra Components for over 35 years. 

Essentra supplies Custom Fittings with a mixture of BSP, JIC, metric, flange and B-seal caps in a variety of colours to provide the protective reassurance sought by the manufacturer. Commenting on so many years of a successful partnership, Custom Fittings Director Mark Crowther observes “Essentra offers a range of caps that does an outstanding job of protecting our fittings”.

A view on liquid vs compression gaskets
We all know that for a gasket to do its job effectively, it is essential that the seal it creates remains intact over a long period of time. The gasket must also be resistant to fluids and/or gases and be able to withstand the operating temperatures and pressures to which it is subjected. For many applications, these qualities are best achieved with adhesive gasketing products in preference to pre-cut, compression gaskets  says Henkel Loctite.
