Pipe Plugs are available in sizes to 240" ( 20' ) and to pressures of 15,000 Psig (1000 bar).
Pipe plugs are used for the isolation of piping systems during testing, repair and maintenance. Pipe plugs can be used for bypassing damaged sections of piping and for the testing of piping systems during construction. These pipe plugs can be used to verify the leak tightness of piping systems prior to putting the piping system into service. They are also used to individually test the integrity of pipe connections i.e. welds, couplings, mechanical joints, gaskets.
Our pipe plugs provide positive "seal" against pipeline test pressures and positive "hold" (restraint) against total pipe pressure force.
Materials of construction of the pipe plug body are typically "light weight" corrosion resistant aluminum. If your requirements need another material we can provide:
Other materials available,... just ask!
Material of construction for the seals (elastomers) can be any of the following:
EPDM - Ethylene Propylene
SBR - Butadiene Styrene
Viton® Fluorinated Hydrocarbon
High temperature seals
