Product Details

Tri-Covers® are high purity foam caps designed to block and protect sanitary ends. They securely lock in place following clean-out-of-place (COP) procedures and can be installed and remove with ease using one hand.

Tri-Covers are made from high purity, inert and UV stable cross-linked polyethylene foams. The foam material is FDA approved and is USP Class VI grade.
