Suppose you’re in the business of regularly capping or decapping various aluminium caps on crimp top vials. In that case, it is essential to ensure you have the correct equipment to perform the job.

Consistent crimping and decapping thousands of vials can be time-consuming and tedious; therefore, finding an effective solution for ease of execution becomes simple if you know where to look for quality tools.

Chromatography Vial Crimpers and de-cappers need to be of a high standard to ensure the speed and quality of the seal. Chromatography Direct offer quality manual and electronic crimpers for 8mm, 11mm and 20mm caps.

If you’re experiencing any of the following, it means your equipment needs renewing to maintain the speed and precision you need:-

  • A loose crimped seal.
  • An untidy crimped cap.
  • Your current tool is sticking on the cap.
  • An effort increase to de-cap or crimp.
