Original Press Release

Make UC Clean Flange Caps Part of Your Safety Program

Press release date: January 9, 2014

Clean Flange Ultra Clean Technologies

ASAP Hydraulics now carries Ultra Clean Technologies Clean Seal Flanges, the most prominent feature was its ability to keep the oil in the hose, thus reducing the contamination of the system.  However, as things typically do, this product is now evolving into a safety product.

Why is this happening?  Recently, 2 mechanics at large quarry went out to change a hose on a Caterpillar D9.  It was a large hose with flanges on each end.  As they have traditionally done, the mechanic removed the flange on the low end of the connection and covered the flange with a plastic cap that came with the hose. His partner then disconnected the upper flange and broke the vacuum.  Gravity then took over and the oil rushed down hill.  It blew off the cap and drenched the lower mechanic with oil.  Thankfully it was not hot but it could have been or he could have received a face full of oil.

In today's environment, customers are more safety conscience than ever. Using the Ultra Clean Clean Seal Flanges in your operation your customer will not only help keep you plant and equipment cleaner but help keep your employees safer!.
