GPN 207 standard serie
Protection Against Dirt
GPN 207 standard series caps (Kapsto) from Pöppelmann GmbH & Co. KG, Lohne, Germany, have internal fins for protecting hose, pipe ends, SAE male mating surfaces and threaded bolts against dirt and damage. The protective caps can be attached to rough profiles or end pieces that have deformations or tolerances. Internal axial fins in the caps are capable of compensating even large tolerances and will ensure a tight fit. The presence of the fins means that the caps are not airtight, with the result that hoses and pipes are ventilated even with the caps fitted.
The protective caps are made from natural-colored, flexible polyethylene (LDPE) and are largely resistant to chemicals. They come in a semi-transparent design which allows them to be checked for correct fit when attached. The new standard series is now available ex stock in seven sizes for external diameters between 5.2 and 15 mm. Additional dimensions, heat-resistant versions and custom-designs can be developed to customer specifications.
