HFT steel plugs make heavy-duty pipe blocking easier
Pipestoppers, a division of Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT, manufacture Steel Plugs, which have been the favoured heavy-duty plug for applications such as leak testing, pipe stopping and blocking for their sealing effectiveness and durability.
HFT Pipestoppers Steel Plugs can be used for low pressure testing and plugging all pipes, pipelines and pipe work between 2 to 48" (50 to 1,200 mm) diameter.
Luke Keane, Technical Sales Manager for HFT, said: "Plugging challenges are a thing of the past with our Steel Plugs range. They provide a strong, leak-free seal with each plug having a long life span."
"Where plugs might be required to work close to the top of their pressure range and to hold seals longer than would be the case with single plugs, we also manufacture Double Steel Plugs, which increases the capability of the plug."
Specifically designed for heavier duty applications, the Steel Plugs can be immersed in water for long periods of time, can be used at higher temperatures and can be used in acidic or alkaline environments.
The HFT Single and Double Steel Plugs are available with sealing rings made from viton, silicone, neoprene, nitrile or natural rubbers for resistance to different temperatures and chemicals.
The Pipestoppers Division at Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT supplies a range of Mechanical and Inflatable Pipestoppers and Plugs to suit every application.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
