EDT Corp Raises the Sanitation Bar with KleanCap Screws
EDT Corp has introduced the KleanCap bearing locking device as a more sanitary alternative to socket-head screws which are typically used to lock insert bearings onto shafts, including in the company's DoubleLock locking sleeve. The raised-hex head of the KleanCap screw eliminates the traditional socket design which can harbour bacteria.
The DoubleLock sleeve is a clamp-style shaft protector made of 316 stainless steel. EDT makes locking sleeves to protect equipment shafts from being worn by the bearing, laterally retain the shaft within a mounted bearing, and provide a premium surface finish on which a bearing runs, maximizing bearing life.

KleanCap screws are now standard components on DoubleLock sleeves; they can also be purchased individually to retrofit onto DoubleLock sleeves already on equipment or in inventory.

KleanCap screws are available in sizes ¼-28 x 5/8, 5/16-24 x 5/8 and 3/8-24 x 1. They are installed with a hex driver rather than an Allen wrench, which allows more positive installation than a socket-head device.
