Contamination bagged

08 May 2008

Moore Industries in the US has launched a flexible cover that functions like a universal cap to quickly cover the open ends of hoses, pipes, lines, fittings, and connectors to prevent contamination ingression.

“Applicable for a variety of industries, the Conduit Cover substantially reduces labour and material expenses by eliminating the time and cost associated with storing, managing, and sizing current protection devices such as plastic caps, plugs or tape,” according to the company.

Based on a patented design, Conduit Covers are heavy duty polyethylene bags with flexible tie straps that are put over the open-ends of connectors when disconnected or removed from a machine component during repair or rebuild.

Initially available as a four-inch (100 mm) version for conduits 2.5 inches (63 mm) in diameter and smaller, the company unveiled 8- and 12-inch (200 and 300 mm) versions at the IFPE trade show in Las Vegas in March.
