Our Mansafe adaptor products

Mansafe adaptors enable the correct application of Minesafe radiator caps, as well as a reduction in coolant loss. We specialise in providing adaptors for Caterpillar and Komatsu radiators, and we also stock all major brands. To find the right product for your machinery, you'll need to understand which thread type you'll need.

Adaptors for your Caterpillar

This product ensures Minesafe radiator caps can be installed on the right Caterpillar machines. It's an essential safety product which prevents onsite scalding injuries to employees on a mining site.

  • Large cap with 82mm opening
  • O-ring used to improve the seal
  • 10 mm overhang to shield against seal

Adaptors for your Komatsu machinery

Not all Komatsu machines are compatible with Minesafe radiator caps. That's why we stock Mansafe adaptors. It's essential to install radiator caps with brass pin levers, so your employees can release the pressure from a radiator before removing the cap.

  • Large cap with 82mm opening
  • Non-recovery 20psi cap
  • One piece design with guard

Adaptors for all major brands

We don't just stock adaptors for Caterpillar and Komatsu radiators — we also stock Mansafe adaptors for all major brands. All we need to know is the thread pitch size you're looking for, and we can find the right product for you.

  • A range of thread pitches to suit different applications
  • Different sizes available
  • Variety of seals for added safety

Why thread type is so important

If you let us know some basic details about the thread type on your machine, we can find the right adaptor. The key lies in identifying thread type. We'll need to know details like:

  • Male thread or female thread: If the thread is on the outside, it's a male thread. If it's on the inside, it's a female thread.
  • Tapered or parallel thread: Tapered threads become narrower, while parallel threads stay the same width.
  • Pitch size: This refers to the number of threads, or the distance between threads.
  • Thread diameter: The measurement of the outside of a male thread, and inside of a female thread.
  • Thread type standard: Identify whether it's NPT, JIS/PT, BSP, SAE, or Metric.

If you're unsure what this all means, get in touch with our team and we'll help you identify the thread type on your machinery.

Why is thread type so important?

Identifying the thread type your machine needs enables us to match the right product. As we said above, if you don't have the correct parts, you're at risk of scalding and burn injuries from the unsafe release of pressurised steam.

How do I know if I need a new radiator cap?

When you check the coolant, also check the radiator cap for worn or cracked rubber gaskets. Always perform a pressure test on your cap. Cover the cap with a cloth and gently release the cap — if you don't hear a hiss, you'll need a new cap.

How do I know if I need an adaptor?

If your machinery doesn't fit with any Minesafe radiator caps, you're going to need an adaptor. This way, you don't have to buy a new machine to be compliant with Australian safety guidelines — just two parts, an adaptor, and a radiator cap. If you use the wrong cap for your application, you may lose an excessive amount of coolant.
