The Pipestoppers® Division at Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® have launched new Rubber PetroChem Stoppers, for pipe stopping where access is difficult.

CEO Managing Director, Georgia Gascoyne said: “Our new Rubber PetroChem Stoppers are an easy way to stop the flow of gas or liquids along a pipe or duct. Each Stopper has a longer length than diameter, which prevents them from tipping over and losing their seal inside the pipe. They are also manufactured with a ribbing to prevent slipping.”

The Inflatable Rubber PetroChem Stoppers are manufactured from high quality materials, ensuring a long life span and are resistant to a large number of chemicals and petrochemicals.

The Stoppers are available in five sizes, which will seal pipes from 2” to 12” (50 mm – 300 mm). Each Stopper is inflated simply using the Schrader Valve.

They’re most commonly used for:

  • Construction site drain testing operations.
  • Debris stopping during machining operations.
  • Leak testing of pipework systems in commercial, domestic and industrial applications.
  • Low-pressure hydrostatic tests.
  • On-site thermoforming of bends in ducting and conduit materials.
  • Fibre-optic construction projects.
  • Plumbing operations.
  • Reduction of weld purging volume when welding headers onto stainless steel tanks.

The Pipestoppers® Division at Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® supplies a range of Mechanical, Inflatable and Solid Rubber Pipestoppers® and Plugs to suit every application.
