PlugCo - High Pressure Pipe Plug
High Pressure Pipe Plug is mainly made of metal body bonded to extra reinforced rubber used to seal or test high pressure pipelines. High pressure Pipe Plugs are mainly made up of a metal body bonded to extra reinforced rubber. These pipe plugs are mechanical devices used for sealing and plugging the end of a pipe, which facilitates the hydrostatic testing and isolation of pressure barriers. HPP are manufactured to resist excessively high pressures, so that the plugged ends can stay in place with total control while the section of pipe in question is pressurized.
PlugCo supplies high quality high pressure pipe plugs. These plugs are suitable for high pressure applications, they are able to withstand and resist a back pressure of 6 bar. The limited back pressure the PlugCo HPP can withstand depends on the customer’s needs. If the customer needs a plug that can withstand a higher back pressure (more than 6bar), then the PlugCo team will always be able to supply it. Thus, PlugCo’s high pressure pipe plugs can be custom made to meet the customer’s project requirements, as can most of our products such as Our High pressure Joint Tester, our Inflatble Pipe Plug, our Air Discharge Adaptors, and other products.
Back pressure is the most critical issue for users of on-site pipe plugs. It is the force that the pipe plug maintains during the process. Pipe plugs are usually subjected to enormous back pressure that is generated in the pipe. Therefore, the back pressure must be calculated precisely to avoid the pipe plug from slipping inside the pipe. Slipping of the plug can lead to dangerous results.
The following technical table shows the Nominal Size, the Usage Size Range, the back pressure and other details about each High Pressure Pipe Plug model.
