HUNTINGDON Fusion Techniques pipestoppers division has launched a new range of aluminium pipe stopping plugs.
Such plugs are used widely in plumbing, petrochemical, water, power and construction industries as well as for civil contracting and ground works, for sealing pipes, blocking them, testing for leaks, and to prevent entry of unwanted foreign material.
Sometimes known as 'drain plugs', this new range ensures that every pipe and tube diameter between 1.5 and 6" has a plug that will seal to full pressure and leak tightness. The full range has the following sizes: 1.5", 2", 2.5", 3.0", 3.5", 4", 4.5", 5", and 6".
The plugs have full length 1/2" bsp waterways giving adequate remaining thread for complete sealing with the cap and to allow good use of hose connections, etc.
In addition, a number of plug sizes are made with extended shafts. These allow for the manufacture of 'double plugs' for extra leak tightness and stability and so that customers might insert the seal further inside a pipe.
Also if the pipe is covered by a fascia or border, the longer length shafts allow operators to install the seal inside the pipe whilst still expanding the plug clear of the obstruction.
An advantage of the new range, is the use of a tough wing nut with a friction free washer underneath to make plug tightening much easier without the need for tools.
