Product Spotlight - Crimpers & Decappers


Crimpers and decappers can be used to safely and conveniently close and open the aluminum seals on test tubes, vials, and laboratory bottles when uniform pressure is applied around the opening. Crimpers create a complete seal, while decappers remove the seal with no damage to the containers. SKS Science provides a full range of manual and automatic crimping and decapping options to improve accuracy, reduce hand fatigue, and increase ease of use.

Crimpers

Crimpers
The E-Z Crimpers provide an easy, manual way to crimp aluminum seals onto various test tubes and vials with a secure fit. Short, ergonomic handles reduce strain from repetitive long-term use of the crimpers. A clip is included to keep the crimpers in the closed position when stored. Choose compatible aluminum seal OD sizes from 13 mm to 30 mm, with seal types including Flip-Cap, Standard, and Uni-Dose.


Crimpers
Wheaton E-Z Crimpers™
have several features to reduce hand fatigue for accurate and continual crimping. The short ergonomic handles include cushioning and spring assembly to reduce hand fatigue. Adjustable stops allow users to modify the tightness of the crimpers to maintain constant and even crimping. The jaws of the Wheaton E-Z Crimpers™ are tapered and polished to allow for convenient use with vials in a racking system. The size of each Wheaton E-Z Crimpers™ is printed on its side for easy identification. For an additional seal, the 11 mm crimpers include a plunger insert for top vial crimping. Wheaton E-Z Crimpers™ are autoclavable at 121° C. Autoclaving may change the appearance and/or reduce product life.

Decappers

DecappersThe steel decapper pliers are compatible with either 13 mm or 20 mm aluminum seals. The steel handles include a plastic coating to create a better grip while in use.

To remove an aluminum seal, clasp the seal between the jaws of the decapper, squeeze, and twist the seal off of the container.

Decappers
The Wheaton™ E-Z decappers are highly user-friendly with many features for comfort and convenience. The decapper handles are short, ergonomically designed, padded, and spring assembled. Available in 8 mm to 20 mm sizes, each of the Wheaton™ E-Z decappers has its size labeled on the handles for quick identification. These decappers are compatible with laboratory vials and bottles with crimp or serum finishes paired with standard aluminum seals.
