This crimper is designed for crimping 1” aerosol valves into the 1” opening of an aerosol can. The crimper is designed for ease of use, and is adjustable for crimp depth and diameter.
The collet used in this crimper duplicates the production crimping collets used widely in the US aerosol trade. The crimping collet is identical to the production collet used to crimp roughly 2 billion of the 3.2 billion aerosol cans in the USA every year. In addition to this, it is superior to other lab crimpers on the market for three reasons:
1. The crimper is externally adjustable for depth and diameter -Either adjustment may be made independently without affecting the other.
2. These adjustments are made externally by turning threaded adjustments- there is no need for disassembling and shimming of the collet or plunger.
3. Standard 8 segment collet provided which is appropriate for the majority of lab use. Accepts other collets as a changepart if needed.
