Şişirilebilir kauçuk kanal tapaları, boru hatlarında bakım ve tamir sırasında ya da yeni kurulum esnasında kullanılabilir. They are used to seal off sections of pipes in a fast, safe and simple manner. Those pipe plugs are often used for blocking pipes, channels, manholes, dams, reservoir and storage tanks. That allows the pipe line to be leak tested or repaired. Some applications for these pipe plugs include:

  • Municipal testing of new and repaired pipelines
  • Blocking water/sewage/drainage/oil/chemicals flows during tests or modifications or repairs
  • Restricting, diverting and bypassing flow in pipes during tests or modifications or repairs
  • Keeping pipelines free of dirt as they can cap or block the ends of pipe systems. This allows
    any construction or maintenance jobs to be conducted with contaminants from entering the
    pipe lines.

Terms

Material: NR = İzopren kauçuğu, doğal. SBR = Stiren butadiyen kauçuk.
Şişirme ve çalışma basıncı: Bu basınç tapanın kenarının hava tarafından doldurulması için gerekli basınç değeridir. Bu değer PLUGCO ürünleri için 1,0 Bar’dan 8 Bar’a kadar olan aralıktır.
Ger(kayma) Basınç: Due to elevation difference between two ends of the pipe line, there will be water pressure which is pushing the plugs from back side of plug to outside of the pipe. That is called as Back Pressure.
Item Codes: The item codes of the pipe plugs are occurred from first letters of their original
names and size ranges.
PTP300600 = Pipe Test Plug (from 300 mm up to 600 mm)
JTP1200 = Joint Test Plug (for 1200 mm)

Safety

Warning!
An inherent danger exists with all inflatable products, any pressurized pipeline or other pressure containment systems.

Every pneumatic plug, like tires, will eventually wear out and fail from continued use. Abuse and misuse will greatly accelerate this failure. Always protect against the eventuality of plug failure to prevent injury and property damage. If any conditions exist with equipment that may jeopardize the safety of yourself or others or if you are unsure about proper use, do not use the equipment. If you have any questions or think any unusual conditions exist that are not described in Plugco safety manuel consult your supervisor or safety director before proceeding.

danger

Must read Plugco safety manual before using plugco pneumatic pipe plugs. Safety terms as below please read and understand carefully follow during usage.

  1. Death, bodily injury and/or property damage may result if plug fails for any reason.
  2. Read and understand plugco safety instruction manual before using plug.
  3. Follow osha confined space procedures or your local government procedures and use required equipment d uring instalation and usage of plugs as per that procedure.
  4. If application team don’t tarained about usage of the pneumatics pipe plugs, don’t allow Them to use plugco pipe plugs. Request plugco to provide training for your team.
  5. Must wear safety glasses and a hard hat.
  6. Do not enter danger zone when plug is in use.
  7. Measure pipe diameter before selecting plug.
  8. Inspect plug for damage before and after use. Never use a plug in a pipe size different from recommended usage range.
  9. Always attach an inflation extension hose so plug can be inflated and deflated from outside the d anger zone.
  10. Never remove the inflation hose until all back pressure is released and the plug is deflated.
  11. Must inflate plug to the pressure shown on plug.
  12. Always use properly calibrated two pressure gauges.
  13. Do not exceed recommended maximum allowable inflating pressure.
  14. Always release back pressure from the pipe first, before deflating plug.
  15. Don’t expose plug to sunlight.

Instructions to use

  • Select correct size and pressure for your application. Plugco pipe plugs bear an identification plate indicating
    • The type of pipe plug
    • The minimum and maximum plug diameter,
    • Inflation pressure (working pressure)
    • Back Pressure (Sliding pressure)
  • Inspect the pipe to remove any rough protuberances (stones, deposits etc.)
  • Do not inflate the stopper outside the pipe.
  • Never place a foreign matter between the pipe wall and the plug and remove all sharp edges.
  • Braced the pipe plug against sliding of plug.
  • Check that the plug is fully inserted into pipe before inflating and centralize it in the pipe.
  • Inspect the inflation line and inflation equipment for safe connection and free of damage.
  • Inflate the plug in allowed max. Pressure and never exceed that pressure.
  • Use calibrated safety valve and pressure gauge.
  • As a MOST IMPORTANT safety measure, keep at a safe distance from the pipe plug and NEVER – EVER stand in DANGER ZONE when it is in use and during inflation and deflation operation.
  • Before remove the plug first remove back pressure on plug then deflate completely the plug then the operator can enter the danger zoon to remove the plug.

Above instructions are only main points during usage. However the plugs should be used by trained and experienced team. If your team do not trained about pipe plugs applications, don't use Plugco Plugs. Usage by un-trained team may cause death or serious injuries. Plugco can provide training and supervision for your team.
