Sanding Sleeve

Sanding Sleeve

Sands and polishes plungers that have light to moderate scores for a like-new piston. Also, smooths bad joints and areas with rust.

Plungers used in the elevator industry are typically mild steel tubing that can be scratched and easily worn over time. Scratches, burrs and formations of rust will shorten seal life and cause significant leakage. Pistons that have been worn too smooth will not allow an oil film to aide in the lubrication of the seal thus resulting in poor ride performance.

Texacone developed the Sanding Sleeve specifically to refinish plungers and return them to a factory-like finish. The Sanding Sleeve simply bolts to existing cylinder head hardware and is clamped around the plungers. It is reusable only needing to be relined with abrasive paper to be put back in action.

Specify plunger diameter when ordering.

600 Seal

After installing our special torch tip on our acetylene torch, 1) Apply the flux, 2) Then the solder.

600 Seal

3) Smooth with the lubricated paddle, 4) Then polish with the sanding block for a like-new piston.

Sure Fill Repair Kit

Now you can permanently repair piston damage at a fraction of the cost of replacement. And Texacone’s Sure-fill Repair Kit gives you what you need to do the job right. Everything you need comes in a convenient carrying case, so you never have to worry about lost parts, and refills are available.

  • Excellent adhesion because our unique flux enables the solder filler to bond permanently to the repair area and is impervious to oil, pressure and vibration.
  • Solder filler has heat conduction properties similar to steel plungers so the repair will not crack or peel off like plastic fillers.
  • The final repair will be undetectable with a smooth surface for better sealing and lower friction.

Diameter Tape

Diameter Tape

Easy to use ratchet drive accurately determines plunger diameters. Critical for ordering the correct packing set.

The Texacone diameter tapes use a reinforced tape that will not stretch, kink, rust or absorb oil. The tape has 2 sides; one for measuring diameters in units of hundredths of an inch and the other side is a standard inch rule in units of an inch. Texacone’s unique tape case has a ratchet stop that allows the tape to remain extended. A quick press of a button retracts the tape.

Texacone Handbook

Texacone Technician's Head ID Handbook

The Identification system that Texacone made famous is also available in a convenient pocket-sized handbook. This handbook is indispensable for field personnel who need to order the correct packing set the first time. You can quickly identify the cylinder head by manufacturer and model type and select the corresponding packing set, all without disassembling the unit.

Detailed CAD drawings faithfully duplicate features of each manufacturer’s head for easy identification. Handbook includes many hard-to-identify cylinder heads that haven’t been produced for years.

The handbook is printed on durable, laminated pages that resist fading and stand up to grease, oils and years of use.

The original is still the best and the most complete available.
