6. How do I determine which size capsule to use?
The Clean Seal Capsule size is directly related to the hex OD by measuring from point-to-point (not the flats!) on the hex fitting. There is a sizing chart on the Ultra Clean Website and in our Clean Seal System brochures and Product Manual. You may also call our customer service at 800-791-9111 to request copies.
7. How do I measure my fitting?
Measure the largest part of the fittings outside diameter (OD). When measuring, go from hex-point to hex-point and not from flat side to flat side to get an accurate measurement.
9. Will the heat damage or shrink O-rings on male-boss or flange-style fittings?
No, not when following Ultra Clean's capsules-shrinking procedures. The capsules and O-ring style fitting should not be in the Clean Seal System (heat shrink machine or gun) more than 5 seconds maximum when heating unit is at optimum temperature. Fittings and capsules are generally cool to the touch immediately after the capsule is sealed onto the fitting.
10. Can I get the capsules private labeled?
Yes, minimum quantities start at 100,000pcs per size per production run. Special tooling for putting your logo, part number, etc. onto the capsules will also need to be purchased.
11. How do capsules compare to regular caps and plugs currently on the market?
First, Clean Seal Capsules are easier to install and remove than traditional injection-molded caps and plugs. They fit loosely over the fitting end and conform to the fitting OD when heat is applied. They will not fall off during transportation or handling and they are easy to remove because of the unique built-in tear strip feature.
b. Second, Clean Seal Capsules are cleaner than regular caps and plugs. They come pre-stacked so the inside of the capsule is always clean compared to loose caps and plugs that can become contaminated from airborne particles. Sharp male or female threads can cut or shear off pieces of plastic when injection-molded caps or plugs are pushed in or over the threads. The plastic pieces will fall into the inside of the hose or tube creating additional internal contamination that must be removed. The shaving off of plastic can also occur when removing tight fitting caps or plugs.
14. Can I shrink capsules onto plain-end tubing or pipe?
Clean Seal Capsules can be shrunk onto a smooth round surface but you run the risk of the capsule sliding off prematurely. Capsules work best with a fitting shape as they conform to the fittings' OD making it impossible for them to fall off.
16. Why do I need a heat diffuser for my heat gun?
It is much easier to shrink a capsule onto a fitting with the diffuser. It provides a gentle 360° airflow for even shrinking around the capsule. The force of air coming out of a normal heat gun may blow the capsule off the fitting.
CLEAN SEAL FLANGE:
1. Why do I need this breather? My reservoir already has a vent cap.
Standard vents or breather caps do not prevent the most harmful elements from entering your system.
Most standard breather caps are intended to cover the filler opening on a tank or reservoir and to keep out rain and large solid particles. Most of these are only capable of stopping particles of about 100 micron or larger. Studies have shown that to have a significant effect on abrasive wear, particles of 10 micron or less must be kept out of the system. Ultra Clean® breathers remove particles of 2 micron and larger before they cause the silent destruction of your equipment. Most importantly, standard filler/breather caps do not remove airborne water vapor which causes chemical and physical changes resulting in loss of additive performance, sludge, bacteria growth, and corrosion. Ultra Clean® breathers remove water vapor before it enters the tank or reservoir.
