Pipe Plugs for Heavy-Duty Applications

PlugFast Pipe Plugs : Most drain test plugs expand from the centre, however, above a certain size, the consistency of pipe roundness starts to be lost.

Pipe plugs

For such applications, PlugFast™ Pipe Plugs offer a great reliability as they can be tightened at the edges in such a way that the seal is made, even with pipe ovality and lack of roundness.

These hard-wearing plugs are available in sizes from 18″ (457 mm) up to 48″ (1,219 mm).

Other featured include:

  • A single port series and double port option.
  • The centre stem is 2” (50 mm diameter) and is threaded to accept a 2” BSP screw cap.
  • The second port is normally fitted with a 4” (100 mm) plain bore and supplied complete with a 4” (100 mm) steel drain test plug.
  • The second port is normally offset to the outer edge of the Peripheral Sealing Plug, allowing the water to be easily drained from the pipeline after testing.
Pipe plugs

Peripheral Sealing Plugs are specifically designed and manufactured for heavy duty applications such as immersion in chemicals and / or exposure to high temperatures.

The Pipestoppers® Division Manufactures:

  • The lightweight Nylon Plugs for cleanliness, orbital welding techniques as well as pharmaceutical and medical applications. Other applications for these lightweight plugs include leak testing, sealing, isolation and weld purging. Manufactured in sizes 0.5 up to 6” (12 – 150 mm), the Nylon Plugs are available individually or in ready-made kits. 
  • The heavy-duty Aluminium Plugs allow for arduous duties such as exposure to high temperatures and immersion in chemicals. They are manufactured in sizes 1.5 to 36” (38 – 900 mm).
  • Manufactured in larger sizes, the Steel Plugs are available up to 72″ (1,800 mm) are also in double versions for enhanced sealing. These very heavy-duty plugs are suited to applications such as long immersion in water or exposure to higher temperatures, for which the other plugs within the Pipestoppers® Range may not be suitable.
  • Lighter in weight, the Inflatable Stoppers come in all shapes and sizes, including the Low Profile, Cylindrical and Spherical, PetroChem™ and Rubber Plugs. They are designed for several applications, which include blocking pipes, tanks or other orifices, weld purging, routine maintenance or to prevent the entry of foreign bodies.
  • Qwik-Freezer™ and Accu-Freeze™ make up the Pipe Freezing Pipestoppers® Range. Freezing pipes for routine maintenance work saves both time and money and avoids entire systems having to be drained. For industries including building services, hospitals, water treatment, hotels and public building.
