Rubber thread protector caps are designed to stretch over the threads of a pipe to provide a good seal. They serve in shielding the threads and maintaining contaminants out of the pipe or tubing. They cushion the threads in opposition to harm. They are tear-resistant, they’ll not wear out that easy.
Rubber thread protector caps occur in diverse shapes and types. High-Temperature Tapered Caps, manufactured from silicone, can withstand high temperatures that make them suitable for high heat activities. They occur in any other form – Hollow High-Temperature Tapered Caps; these rubber caps can face up to temperatures as much as 600° F. They are designed to guard internally threaded NPT connections against contaminants during high-temperature activities. Similarly, they’re supplemented with a tear-away section to easily release pressure.
Also, Sanitary Thread Caps are another kind of rubber thread protector caps. Their primary feature is to prevent microbial activation in food processing businesses and other sanitary environments. They include a silicone seal that blocks out water and contaminants. The rest of the system is manufactured from 304 stainless steel, which resists corrosion, notwithstanding frequent washdowns. They come with a brilliant-smooth end, that when blended with their rounded edges, leave no scope for water and bacteria to dangle around. This reduces the hazard of a foodborne infection spreading. To top it all, they’re as much as four times as tall as the largest cap nuts so that they guard more threads. Sanitary low-profile cap nuts are some other type of rubber thread protector caps. These cap nuts are beneficial within the food processing industry. They snug into tight areas to cowl and seal exposed threads. They’re fabricated from silicone rubber and 316 stainless steel. They don’t have horizontal surfaces, so liquids and particles will drain off without leaving a hint. Plus, the silicone seal at the base keeps the threads safe from contaminants. It also eliminates possibilities of unsanitary steel-to-metallic contact.
