Pipe Plugs, 117 Qwik-Ways To Plug A Pipe
| Low Pressure Nylon Expansion Plugs
Durable multi-purpose pipe plugs / tube plugs for weld purging, low pressure testing, leak testing, simple closures and other pipe plugging applications.
Cast Aluminum Expansion Plugs
Rugged, lightweight aluminum expansion plugs from 1.5” – 36” (custom sizes also available). These are easy to use wing-nut style pipe plugs with a hollow threaded stem that can be used to fill or vent. Sometimes referred to as “plumber’s plugs”, they are used in a wide range of applications including water and sewer, petroleum and gas, construction and FME (foreign material exclusion).
Pipe Plug Kits
Nylon Expansion Plugs from 1/2” – 4” with fittings and caps in a convenient hard carrying case with custom foam inserts. Ideal for pipe purging, automotive radiator and swimming pool testing.
| Low Pressure Expansion Plugs
Fast and easy low pressure expansion plugs provide watertight seals in a variety of styles including Snap-Tite Plugs, Turn-Tite Plugs, Hex-Nut Plugs and Thumb-Nut Plugs.
Bag Plugs are widely used in power plants and all kinds of piping systems for FME (foreign material exclusion) applications, to prevent debris from entering a line or to block gas or fumes. These heavy-duty inflatable plugs can be inserted through smaller diameter openings and seal pipe from 2” – 96”.
| Qwik-Fit Cylinder Plugs
Qwik-Fit Cylinder Plugs are similar to the Bag Plugs in that they can fit through reduced openings, but they are an elongated (cylindrical) version that can also hold small to moderate amounts of water pressure in addition to FME applications.
| Qwik-Gate Plugs
Used for valve replacements, to add fittings or make line repairs without having to shut off water or drain lines. Qwik-Gate Plugs can withstand from -25°F to 225°F and are rated for up to 65 PSI.
| OLS Plugs
Tough, versatile multi-size inflatable pipe plugs / flow stoppers made from Kevlar-reinforced neoprene rubber that can hold roughly 10 PSI – 30PSI backpressure. Available for pipe sizes from 1.5” – 48”.
|Multi-Size Inflatable Pipe Plugs / Flow Stoppers
Newman Tools now offers Multi-Size Inflatable Stoppers in a larger range of sizes with the NEW MLS (Stoppers) and FXBP (Bypass Plug) models. MLS and FXBP Plugs offer versatility, flexibility and durability with reinforced ozone protected natural rubber construction*. These plugs are extremely popular in all types of construction, water and sewer, and pipeline maintenance applications.
Flex ODS Plugs
Multi-size inflatable pipe plug / flow stoppers made from Kevlar-reinforced neoprene rubber with a built-in, threaded bypass which allows for filling or venting through the plug. Available from 4” – 48”.
| Redwood Pipe Plugs
Redwood pipe plugs work equally well for both gas and water lines, and are a fast inexpensive way to seal a leak.
Available from 1/2 to 12" pipe size
Qwik-Test Seal Plugs
These are commonly called Disc Plugs and have a low-profile aluminum body with an inflatable seal and 2” test ports with a braced pressure rating of 15 PSI. Disc Plugs can be made either in one piece or in multiple sections for limited access situations (all sizes 48” and up are “split design). Sizes 24” – 96”
| Medium Pressure Roll-up
Size specific inflatable test plugs with a braced pressure rating of up to 150 PSI with bypass and vent ports standard. Sizes 4” – 96”
Self-restraining pipe plugs made to order for all kinds of pipe testing and pipe plugging applications that can be rated for up to 250 PSI backpressure. Sealfast Plugs are available with inflatable or mechanical seals for sizes 4” and up.
| Qwik-High Pressure Stopper
High Pressure Mechanical Test Plugs rated for pressure testing up to 3000 PSI. Available to fit all pipe schedules from 1/2" and up with connection for filling / venting.
| Qwik-Socket Weld Plugs
Designed for pressure testing socket weld fittings, Socket Weld Plugs eliminate the need for welding plugs or nipples to openings for testing. Available from 1/2" – 2”.
Qwik-High Pressure External Closure
External Closures offer a very safe method of pressure testing—as pressure increases the clamp forms a tighter seal. These are also used in applications where the ID of the pipe cannot be marred. This method is an industry proven performer available for up to 12” pipe.
Multi-size Grout Packers are now available in a variety of sizes and lengths that are rugged and easy to use.
