Pipe Plug

The expandable pipe plug, sometimes called inflatable pipe plug or just pipe plug, is made of reinforced rubber. It is used to seal gravity pipelines or to perform a leak test on pipelines. This testing plug is used in almost all pipelines, such as urban infrastructure that carry sewers and storm drains. In addition, it can also be used by companies to seal hydrocarbon pipelines such as oil, gasoline and natural gas.

Pipelines should be checked during installation. And while they are in service, they have to be accessible for inspection, repair or modification.

Inflatble pipe plug provided by PlugCo

The inflatable pipe plug, which is a type of expandable pipe plugs, is molded from rubber and is available as either a blank plug or a test plug. It is inflated pneumatically using a hand or foot pump, or a compressor on site. Each inflatable plug is designed to seal a number of pipe sizes and can withstand pressures up to 1.5 bar. They are typically available from 100 mm to 2200 mm.

Find the answers to all your questions about Pipe Plug

  • What is the most important thing about Pipe Plug?+

    PlugCo is considering the safety as its first priority. That’s why we are always insisting on following the safety instructions in our Safety Manual to avoid the Plugs sliding or bursting, which can result in bodily injury, death or property damage!

  • What is the material of Pipe Plug?+

    The Pipe Plug is made of SBR+NR mixed rubber, nylon cord, Kevlar cord and strong fabrics.

  • What is Pipe Plug?+

    Pipe Plug is a gravity lines testing and sealing device. It’s named also inflatable pipe plug, pipe balloon, pipe stopper, pneumatic plug or rubber plug and it’s used to seal or test sewer and drain pipelines of different sizes starting from Dia. 35mm up to Dia. 2200mm

  • How do we use Pipe Plug?+

    For leakage test, we use the Pipe Plug to block the pipeline from both sides by two pieces of PP Model and then, filling the test water from the manhole to test the pipeline. Otherwise, the Pipe Plug is used to block the line and seal the pipe. You can check more details in our User Manual

  • How can we choose the suitable model of the Pipe Plug?+

    We are choosing the suitable PP Model based on many criteria which are mainly: pipe size, media and back pressure. You can check all standard models from the above Technical Table.

  • Can we use one PP Model for many pipe sizes?+

    PP Model is multi-size pipe plug which means that you can use one PP Model for many pipe sizes. For example, you can use PP6001600 for all pipe diameters between 600mm and 1600mm. You can check in the above table the Usage Size Range of each pipe plug model. You can watch our video for more details.

Piping Stopper

The Piping Stopper has 2 categories. The multi-size category covers only one type, namely inflatable sewer plugs (PlugCo PP model), while the one-size category has two sub-categories, namely mechanical sewer plugs and inflatable sewer plugs (PlugCo MPP model). For more details you can check the following article https://www.plugco.net/guide-to-correct-pipe-stopper.

The most important thing about PlugCo is; it regards customer safety as its first priority. Therefore, we always insist on following and complying with the safety instructions in our safety manual in order to prevent the plugs from slipping or bursting, which can lead to personal injury, death or damage to property!
