Expanding Rubber Plugs for use with Oils, Hydrocarbons and Petrochemicals


Often, pipes containing oils, hydrocarbons and petrochemicals need to be blocked but not all plugs are suitable for such applications.

The Pipestoppers® Division at Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® manufacture a range of Rubber Plugs, for fast, reliable and safe pipe stopping.

Ron Sewell, Chairman at HFT® said: “There are many applications where our Rubber Plugs are suitable, including for use in water, sewage, fluid production (milk, beer, chemicals), petrochemical, pharmaceutical and gas pipeline systems. Challenging pipe stopping conditions can cause major inconveniences, with many alternative products not being able to handle such intense conditions.”

“Our Rubber Plugs are lightweight and very simple to inflate, with a standard quick disconnect fitting from compressor to plug. With a quick retrieval, simply by disconnecting from the compressor, the plugs deflate instantly.”

The Pipestoppers® range of Rubber Plugs are manufactured from high quality materials, ensuring a long life span of each Plug. They have a temperature resistance from -40°C (-40°F) to 70°C (158°F) and are available in sizes from 2 to 78” (51 to 1,981 mm) with each Plug having a wide degree of flexibility in diameter.

The Plugs are manufactured from high quality polymers including styrene, butadiene and isoprene. 


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