The trailer component market is witnessing a significant advancement with the introduction of the VALCRUM ST-400D, a universal threaded hub cap designed to set new durability standards and serve as a robust upgrade to the conventional dexter 2136 hub cap.
Valcrum, the company renowned for its commitment to quality and innovation, has once again raised the bar. “We saw what the industry was offering, took note of the common issues, and asked ourselves how we could improve. The ST-400D is our answer,” said Alton Shelton, the owner of Valcrum.
The ST-400D is crafted from a high-strength aluminum alloy, a material selected for its exceptional durability and resistance to the cracking often seen in plastic caps. This upgrade is not just a step forward; it’s a leap into a future where frequent replacements and the associated downtime are things of the past.
Designed to fit a wide range of axles – including 9K (post 10-1-89), 10K, 12K, and 15K – the ST-400D is a testament to Valcrum’s dedication to versatility. Its universal 4″ threaded design ensures a broad compatibility, simplifying the process of upgrading for trailer owners.
Shelton emphasizes, “Our aluminum alloy hub caps ensure operators won’t face the cracking that plagues plastic caps. It’s about delivering a product that lasts, reducing the total cost of ownership, and enhancing the efficiency of operations.”
In addition to its rugged build, the ST-400D boasts a user-friendly oil level indicating window for easy maintenance checks. The inclusion of a magnetic vent plug further enhances the product’s value, serving to eliminate metallic particles, thus protecting the wheel hub and bearings from potential damage and extending their service life.
Ease of maintenance has been a focal point in the design of the ST-400D, evident in its easy-access drain and fill ports. These features collectively offer a streamlined approach to maintenance, which is crucial for keeping trailers on the road with minimal interruption.
The VALCRUM ST-400D is a product born from understanding the needs of the industry and responding with innovation. It represents a dedication to excellence, not only matching but exceeding the expectations set by previous standards like the dexter 2136.
Valcrum is a forward-thinking company established with a mission to provide the trailer industry with durable, high-quality components. Combining extensive experience and an innovative approach, Valcrum has consistently delivered products that solve real-world problems for trailer owners and operators.
