Options & Accessories

Bottle Activated Backstop

The Bottle Activated Backstop includes a built in switch that initiates the capping process when the bottle is pressed against it. It eliminates the need to depress a foot switch or dual push buttons and as a result increases the speed and productivity of the capping process.

The Bottle Activated Backstop includes the EZ Slide Base. The EZ Slide™ Base features a plastic coated stainless steel grill. The grill provides a low friction surface that allows bottles to slide over the base easily and enables the operator to quickly center the bottle in preparation for capping.

The stainless steel grill is spring loaded. Within the slots of the grill are strips of an extremely high friction rubber. The downward force generated during the capping process pushes the spring loaded grill down and pushes the bottom of the bottle firmly against the strips of rubber. The rubber strips are highly effective in preventing the bottle from spinning during the capping process. If the strips do not completely prevent the bottle from spinning during the capping process, only the slightest of assistance from the operator is required.

The Bottle Activated Backstop with EZ Slide Base accommodates bottles up to 6.50 inches in diameter and is constructed of 304 stainless steel and hard coat anodized aluminum for outstanding corrosion resistance.

Foot Pedal Activated Bottle Gripping Base

The Foot Pedal Activated Base perfectly centers the bottle in preparation for capping and holds the bottle to prevent it from spinning during the capping process. The four continuously adjustable grippers can be set to center and hold any bottle regardless of its shape. It is an optional replacement for the standard base used with the SA™ and PumpCap™ Capping Machines.

The foot pedal Activated Base allows for complete hands free operation of the capping machine which increases the speed and productivity of the capping process. It accommodates bottles up to 6.33 inches in diameter and is constructed of 304 stainless steel and hard coat anodized aluminum for outstanding corrosion resistance.

Dual Push Button Activated Bottle Gripping Base

The Dual Push Button Activated Base perfectly centers the bottle in preparation for capping and holds the bottle to prevent it from spinning during the capping process. The four continuously adjustable grippers can be set to center and hold any bottle regardless of its shape. It is an optional replacement for the standard base used with the SA™ and PumpCap™ Capping Machines.

Dual push buttons are considered safeguarding devices. The two push buttons must be depressed simultaneously to initiate the capping process, ensuring that the operator’s hands are removed from the capping area during the capping process. The Dual Push Button Base accommodates bottles up to 6.33 inches in diameter. Constructed of 304 stainless steel and hard coat anodized aluminum for outstanding corrosion resistance.

Lever Activated Bottle Gripping Base

The Lever Activated Base perfectly centers the bottle in preparation for capping and holds the bottle to prevent it from spinning during the capping process. The four continuously adjustable grippers can be set to center and hold any bottle regardless of its shape. It is an optional replacement for the standard base used with the SA™, ES Table Top™, and PumpCap™ Capping Machines.

The Lever Activated Base is particularly well suited for use with very short or narrow bottles. Very short containers are difficult to hold during the capping process. There is very little space for the operator’s hand to hold the container without being very close to the cap when the machine is tightening it. The Lever Activated Base holds the bottle firmly and allows the operator to remove their hands from the capping area while the cap is being tightened.

The Lever Activated Base works with bottles up to 6.5 inches in diameter. It is constructed of 304 stainless steel and hard coat anodized aluminum for outstanding corrosion resistance.

EZ Slide™ Grill

The EZ Slide™ Grll is a plastic coated stainless steel grill. The grill provides a low friction surface which allows bottles to slide over the base easily and enables the operator to quickly center the bottle in preparation for capping. It is particularly helpful with large or heavy bottles that can otherwise be cumbersome to position for capping.

The stainless steel grill is spring loaded. Within the slots of the grill are strips of an extremely high friction rubber. The downward force generated during the capping process pushes the spring loaded grill down and pushes the bottom of the bottle firmly against the strips of rubber. The rubber strips are highly effective in preventing the bottle from spinning during the capping process. If the strips do not completely prevent the bottle from spinning during the capping process, only the slightest of assistance from the operator is required.

The EZ Slide Grill can be added to the standard base and accommodates bottles up to 7.25 inches in diameter.

Adjustable Sliding Arms - Square/Rectangular Bottle Holders

Adjustable Sliding Arms can be added to the Backstop of the standard base to allow for easy centering of a square or rectangular bottle under the capping motor in preparation for capping.

The arms are attached to the two grooves that run parallel to the V-shape of the Backstop. The arms can be positioned anywhere along these grooves to accommodate any square or rectangular bottle up to 8.5 inches in width. The arms are available in 2, 3, 4 and 5 inch lengths.

The ST™ Capping Head

Fit your SA™ benchtop capping machine with a 316 stainless steel capping head. 316 Stainless steel is the material of choice for use in laboratory, pharmaceutical, sanitary and sterile packaging environments because it is easy to clean, resistant to corrosion, and is chemically resistant to the cleaning agents commonly used in these environments.

In addition to their 316 stainless steel construction, ST™ capping heads include other features that make them ideal for use in clean settings. The internal components of an ST™ capping head are lubricated with NSF-H1 Food Grade Certified lubricants. The Kinex Exhaust Capture System™ is integrated into the design of every ST™ capping head. As an option, the ST™ capping head can be built with one of our oil free pneumatic motors.

The ST™ Capping Head cannot be purchased through our shopping cart. Please contact us to order.

Oil Free Pneumatic Motors

Equip your SA™ Capping Machine with an optional oil free pneumatic motor. Just as the name suggests, our oil free pneumatic motors do not require lubrication. An oil free pneumatic motor can be installed in an ST™ capping head and a standard SA™ capping head.

Standard pneumatic motors cannot be used in many clean environments because they expel a tiny amount of lubrication in their exhaust. Although the amount of oil they expel is so minimal that it is completely imperceptible, it is still not suitable for a clean environment. Since our oil free motors require no lubrication, the exhaust air exiting the machine is as clean as the compressed air going into it.

Oil free pneumatic motors cannot be purchased through our shopping cart. Please contact us to order.

Exhaust Capture System™

The Exhaust Capture System™ is built into the ST™ capping head and can be added as an option to the standard SA™ capping head.

The Exhaust Capture System™ is an enclosure built into the capping motor that captures the exhaust air expelled by the capping motor and channels it directly into an air hose. The exhaust air then travels through the air hose to where it can be expelled in a location that will not adversely affect the clean environment.

Oil Free Pneumatic Motor with Exhaust Capture™

Combining these features will ensure that the air in your clean room is contaminant free and the air flow in your clean room is undisturbed.

Machined Chucks

Machined chucks are custom made to fit the rib pattern of a particular cap.  They fit the cap in the same way as a socket fits a nut.  Machined chucks provide extreme gripping power that make them very useful for certain types of challenging jobs, a few of which are described below.

  • De-Capping
    The vast majority of de-capping jobs require a machined chuck. In most cases a standard chuck with inserted liner cannot provide enough gripping power to remove a tight cap. Generally what occurs is that the liner simply skids over the cap without removing it.

    Machined chucks grip a cap so perfectly that it makes the removal of even the tightest of caps very easy.
  • Clean Room & Sterile Environments
    The urethane or white rubber inserts within a standard chuck will wear slowly over time and can occasionally leave very small amounts of urethane or white rubber particles on the caps they tighten. These particles may not be allowed in certain clean, sterile or controlled environments.

    Machined chucks are ideal for clean environments since they do not wear and do not create particles.

    Machined chucks also improve torque accuracy and never have to be replaced.
  • Extreme Torque Applications
    When a cap has to be applied with an unusual or extreme level of tightness, a machined chuck is the perfect solution. A machined chuck can always apply as much torque as is necessary and will do so quite easily. Machined chucks also improve torque accuracy and never have to be replaced.
