FTP-P: Flow Through Pillow Packer

Plugo’s Pillow Packers are used for repair and maintenance of large pipe sizes. When there is a crack or damage in a large diameter pipe, the most cost-effective repair method – a Plugco pillow packer – is a convenient solution to repair it. The main difference between normal packers and pillow packers is the latter’s flexibility; pillow packers are foldable to a flat shape. This makes installation of the packer easy, especially if the access opening or manhole is relatively small. Also, Plugco’s pillow packers are approximately 35% lighter than standard packers of equivalent size, making them easy to carry on the job site, very maneuverable, and quick to install.

There are additional advantages when a foldable pillow packer is chosen for pipe repairs:

  • Trenchless repair methods can be used
  • Low weight, foldable shape, ease of transport and maneuverability deliver cost-effective, time-efficient site operations
  • When inflated, a pillow packer will fit the shape of the damaged pipe so both circular and oval pipes can be repaired with a single packer
  • Effective structural repairs can be accomplished by additional layers or repair material

Material: Pillow packers have a double layer rubber sleeve; and, a flow through option is available for added flexibility in the application of this packer to repair procedures. All metal parts of the packer are made of corrosion-resistant materials.

Application: Pillow packers are used for repairing pipeline joints or sections of large diameter pipes when the access opening or manhole is relatively small.
