Protective caps and plugs - new range from Elesa

​New ex-stock protective caps and plugs from Elesa are said to solve protective problems simply – from cushioning pipe ends to preventing loss of fluids or ingress of foreign matter.

They provide tough barriers to match industrial environments from clean workstations to messy outdoor situations – protecting people and equipment against damage.

New Elesa caps and plugs are introduced from its NCT, TX and TNX ranges, where the NCT high grade polyethylene caps are intended to cover tube ends so preventing damage to the tube, restraining leakage and preventing ingress of foreign material. They serve for personal safety protection against impact, for transit protection or use on frameworks and pipe structures and come in sizes from 4mm to 114.3mm internal dia.

TX series threaded plugs in red polyethylene are designed with a functional head for installation by hand in production and assembly phases of pneumatic and hydraulic systems to protect against dust and humidity. They are said to be of value in 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 their NBR gasket offers additional masking area. Sizes of the TX series range from M8 to M26 (G1/8 to G3).

Finally, 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).
