There is a large number of pipe plugging and blocking requirements within a variety of industries, such as oil and gas, construction, plumbing, shipbuilding, mining, power etc., for duties such as repair work, leak testing, weld purging and debris stopping. One major concern being the entry of debris into pipes during operations.
The Pipestoppers® division at Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® design and manufacture a range of mechanical and inflatable pipestoppers and plugs to suit all applications. The low profile stopper is available for applications where insufficient length of pipe is available for the regular cylindrical or spherical stopper.
Manufactured from tough, robust fabric, these new low profile stoppers are available in sizes 6 – 88 in. (150 – 2235 mm) and provide excellent grip inside the pipe, with an effective airtight seal.
Each low profile stopper is fitted with a standard schrader valve connected to a 1.2 m hose, is easy to inflate using a foot pump or compressor and is heat resistant up to 90ºC (194ºF).
