The Pipestoppers® Division comprises Nylon, Aluminium, Steel and Inflatable Stoppers and Pipe Freezing Systems.

The Nylon Plugs, manufactured for tube, pipe and other orifices of 0.5 up to 6” (12 – 150 mm) are ideal for leak testing, sealing, isolation and weld purging. These lightweight plugs are available in ready-made Kits, or can be ordered individually. The Kits are Automotive Radiator Test Plug Kit and the Commercial Radiator Test Plug Kit, Plumbers Kit, Orbital Welders Kit etc.

The heavy-duty Aluminium Plugs are manufactured in sizes 1.5 to 36” (38 to 900 mm) and are suitable for arduous duties such as immersion in chemicals or exposure to high temperatures.

Steel Plugs are available from 1.5 to 72” (38 to 1,800 mm). These larger Plugs are more suited to applications such as long immersion in water or expose to higher temperatures. The Steel Plugs are also available in double versions for improved pressure resistance or better sealing.

The Inflatable Stoppers are lightweight and can be shipped immediately all over the world for minimum expense. They can be inserted and retrieved through minimum sized holes and inflated to full size when inside the opening. The versatile Inflatable Stoppers are manufactured in sizes 1 to 96” (25 to 2,440 mm) and can be used for several applications, which includes blocking pipes, tanks or other circular orifices, weld purging, routine maintenance or to prevent the entry of foreign bodies.

The Pipe Freezing Systems comprises Qwik-Freezer ™ and Accu-Freeze ™. Freezing pipes for routine maintenance work saves both money and time, avoiding entire systems having to be drained. A freeze plug can be made on one side or both sides of a repair, then only the minimum amount of liquid is drained for the repair and the whole system can be brought back into uses shortly after the repair is completed.

Whatever your application, we can help you with your plugging, stopping, weld purging or leak testing needs.
