New Alternative to Plastic Caps and Plugs
Universal "Conduit Covers" Solution Reduces the Cost of
Preventing Open Line Contamination
Yucaipa, CA – July 24, 2007 – Moore Industries has launched a
unique new product that functions like a universal cap and plug to
quickly and easily cover the open ends of all types of hoses, pipes,
lines, fittings, and connectors to prevent contamination ingression.
Applicable for a variety of industries, the Conduit Cover
substantially reduces labor and material expenses by eliminating the
time and cost associated with storing, managing, and sizing current
protection devices such as plastic caps, plugs or tape.
In contrast to traditional plastic caps and plugs which require an
exact fit, Conduit Covers are inherently flexible and fit almost any
size of opening. Based on a patented design, the products are heavy
duty polyethylene bags with flexible tie straps that easily slip
over the open-ends of hoses, lines, pipes, and other sensitive
connectors when disconnected or removed from a machine component
during the repair or rebuild stage. Users simply install one of the
oil and solvent resistant bags over the end of a conduit, then
tighten the tie strap securely around the neck.
Conduit Covers are currently offered in four- and six-inch wide
versions. The protective covers come packaged in a distinctive
slide-seal poly bag that eliminates the need to purchase and manage
divider storage boxes. The slide seal packaging bag can be
conveniently stored in a service truck, tote tray, or shop.
What customers have found particularly appealing about Conduit
Covers is how quickly and easy they are to install. This allows them
to reduce the amount of time it takes to properly protect open
lines. Equally important, Conduit Covers recyclable products are
Furthermore, Conduit Covers can significantly extend the life of
valuable machine components by reducing contamination-related wear.
These protective covers also contain small amounts of residual oil
or liquid that might remain in a hose or line after disassembly,
thereby reducing the likelihood of ground contamination.
Moore Industries is already experiencing a growing demand for its
Conduit Covers among leading construction equipment dealers and
companies employing heavy equipment. Jim Champany, General Service
Manager at Hawthorne Machinery, a San Diego Caterpillar dealer,
states, "What a great idea! Conduit Covers enabled us to exceed our
stringent contamination control requirements and goals. This is one
of the best products we have for contamination control due to its
ease of use."
Jim Pattschull, Equipment Superintendent for FST Sand and Gravel
echoes that sentiment, "Conduit Covers save us considerable time by
not having to size a plastic cap or plug to cover a line - just zip
it and you're done. I’ve been doing this for 20 years; I haven’t
seen anything better or more efficient than these covers. I now just
reach for a bag instead of a box full of miscellaneous caps and
Aside from construction equipment, Conduit Covers can be used on
agricultural, aerospace, manufacturing and medical equipment.
Moreover, they are an ideal solution for the short-term protection
of open lines and electrical connectors in building construction.
Kerry Moore, founder and CEO of Moore Industries, is an experienced
heavy equipment manager who spent several years perfecting the
unique design of Conduit Covers. "I saw a great deal of time and
money being wasted on construction projects while mechanics and
other personnel searched for – or had to leave the site to get - the
right-sized solution for open lines, connectors and pipes. I knew
there had to be better way to handle these situations. I wanted a
universal solution that makes economical sense. Our unique,
protective covers now offer an easy answer to what was often a
frustrating and time-consuming task."
