pipestoppers, huntingdon fusion, pipe plugging, leak testing, weld purgingEffective plugging and sealing of pipes in heavy-duty applications is essential, especially in refineries, offshore operations, plumbing operations as well as domestic and industrial water activities where the plug is likely to be immersed in chemicals or exposed to high temperatures.

The Pipestoppers® Division at Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® manufacture a Range of heavy-duty Aluminium Plugs to allow for arduous duties such as exposure to high temperatures and immersion in chemicals, in sizes 1.5 to 36” (38 - 900 mm).

Ron Sewell, Chairman for HFT® said: “The HFT® Pipestoppers® Range of Aluminium Plugs can be used to leak testing, isolation, sealing, stopping and weld purging of pipes. The Plugs are manufactured with a standard synthetic rubber seal. However, a variety of other sealing rings are available, including natural rubber, silicone, nitrile, neoprene and Viton to ensure they can be used for applications where greater resistance to a variety of materials is required.” 

“The Aluminium Plugs are available up to 36” (900 mm), manufactured with a friction-free washer to ease tightening of the ring nut. All Plugs conform to British Standards BS8005 and BS EN752-4 for low pressure testing and sealing of pipes.”

“As these old fashioned, poor quality dams and materials are warmed by the welding operation, they start to outgas their water vapour, which starts to circulate around the weld joint and combine with the weld pool to cause porosity and oxidation, leading to metallurgical defects.”

The Pipestoppers® Aluminium Plugs have a wide variety of other applications throughout sewage and drainage systems, ducting and conduit, swimming pools. The Plugs are also used to seal and protect tanks, vessels and containers during cleaning and transportation, particularly when they are pressurised with inert gas.

Other Plugs and Stoppers in the Pipestoppers® Division include Mechanical Plugs for low, medium and high pressure stopping requirements and Inflatable Stoppers that can be transported anywhere quickly and easily for a number of low pressure and medium pressure plugging and stopping.
