The innovative design allows the pneumatic isolation plug to be smaller and more flexible which means it can be snaked through hot tap or branch pipes into larger pipelines that are otherwise inaccessible. Inflatable pipe plugs can inflate up to 8 times their compact size to prevent the flow of liquids during maintance work or to block pipes or drains in the event of a spill (connects with your air compressor). The compact size also means that this pneumatic plug takes up minimal storage.
