Snap Action Fill Caps
Tedeco uses the standardized "modular" approach to filler cap assembly. We have three basic sizes into which we fabricate five coupling styles. Then we may add a long hinge pin, (the cap is self-closing), a lockband feature, or one of three special breathing systems. We have "designed-in" the maximum of flexibility in this family of filler cap assemblies.
Tedeco employs three standard filler sizes of snap caps as "building blocks". Each unit may be used alone, or have standard (or a special) mount arrangement added.
The five adapters shown below represent our standard "modular" line. They will be suitable for most general applications. However, we would be happy to design a unique mounting arrangement should your application require it. Please contact our engineering department.
Tedeco has combined the three standard sizes of snap caps, with lockband feature, and three types of breathers to fit your application.
The Tedeco Snap-Cap optional features include: locking bands (LK), to pad lock filler in the closed position; vent holes (V), to relieve system pressure fluctuations; foam filter (B), to filter incoming air in routine applications, and micron filtration (VM), for superior air filtration. Once opened, standard filler caps remain in the open position; for automatic closure, order option (P). See the table below for ordering examples.
Follow this model number format and sequence:
Example: MF952 cap, lockband, vent, and auto-close feature:
when ordering vent or filter options, use only one designator: V,
B, VM; for non-vented, omit the designator. For standard
"stay-open" caps omit the "P".
All dimensions are in inches unless other wise specified
