Our plugs are easily installed, so you can establish a positive seal with minimal driving in seconds and get your Fin-Fan® / air-cooled heat exchanger, boiler or condenser back online quickly. Tapered plugs are stocked in more than 20 metals. We are happy to customize tube plugs according to your needs and in ANY material upon request.

USA Industries is a leader in offering tube plug solutions to users in the oil & gas, chemical and power industries. We have more than 500,000 plugs in stock and ready to ship, and our production capabilities exceed 5,000 plugs per day, more than 20 materials and any coatings you may require.

For best results with sealing tubes without damaging tubesheets, be sure to use the correct size plugs (based on tube O.D. and gauge using our chart below). When ordering, please keep in mind that the tube plug and the tube metal should always match. Please contact us if you have any questions about our plugs or if you require more information.

A SPECIAL WORD OF CAUTION: USA Industries highly recommends you use our One Rev Internal Tube Cutter to puncture the tube before installing any plug to ensure that pressure cannot build up in the tube and cause the plugs to loosen or blow out.
