A SPECIAL WORD OF CAUTION:
Pressure testing can be an extremely hazardous operation and safety precautions should be strictly adhered to. All connections, valves, flanges and other fittings should be checked for suitability to test pressure. Verify the line ID & Plug Range match. Most importantly - Never stand or pass in front of any test plug or other enclosure while test is in progress. If plug discharges during a test, serious injury or death could occur.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, just let us know at the time of order, and we can customize this plug to your needs.
Yes, up to 3,000 PSIG is standard, however, once above 12" the rated pressure begins to drop due to the area, and at 24" the current design is rated to 750 PSIG.
Yes, these can be provided for any schedule pipe. Stocked schedules are typically schedules 40S and 80S.
Yes, the use of the safety strap and chain is always recommended.
It will cause some scarring to the ID of your pipe, especially with higher pressures. This is the trade off for technician and plant safety.
No, just a properly sized wrench, socket, crescent, or pipe wrench to tighten up one compression nut. (Note: the 20" and 24" plugs have multiple nuts.)
Yes, we're happy to provide replacement kits as needed.
For all sizes 2" and above you need about 200 ft/lbs to ensure proper installation. As the plug sees pressure, the design causes the plug to seat itself harder into the pipe.
