Civacon, a leading provider of cargo tank components and systems, is pleased to announce the addition of the new 875 API Dust Cap, whose rugged, corrosion-resistant attributes have been designed to withstand the punishment inherent in the petroleum, fuel oil, and lube oil transportation industry. The 875 API Dust Cap has been specifically engineered to provide a liquid tight seal as a secondary sealing device to reduce avoidable product loss. The unique radial cam action also allows for single-handed operation, both on and off.
These liquid tight, lightweight caps — die-cast aluminum construction with a durable black coating that makes them extremely resilient — protect and extend the life of the poppet face of the API Head and will retain their shape when dropped or mishandled. Standard cam arms use an off-center lobe to wedge the cam down onto the API Head, which may result in premature wear to the nose of the API Head. The 875 API Dust Cap’s patented radial cam action is a much more precise mechanical action that greatly reduces wear on the API Head.
The 875 API Dust Cap meets API RP 1004 specifications, is lockable with a pre-cast hole in the cap that provides for a security seal tab, has a durable Nitrile gasket that ensures a pressure-rated positive seal, and is tethered with a standard jacketed stainless-steel cable.
The 875 API Dust Cap has a height of 8-5/8” when closed, a height of 12-1/4” when open and a width of 7-1/8,” weighs 2.5 pounds.
