Effective 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.”

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.

Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® have a worldwide Exclusive Distributor network, which can be found at www.huntingdonfusion.com.

Low Cost Monitor for Welding Titanium and Stainless Steel

Titanium and stainless steel are both reactive alloys. When they are heated during the welding process, they will react with any air that is present, causing oxidation, which can lead to a loss of corrosion resistance properties. Shielding the metal with an inert gas is therefore crucial and one wa ...

Accurately Measure the Dew Point During Purging

During purging welders need to measure the oxygen content but also need to measure the ‘dew point'. The dewpoint is the temperature where condensation begins and water will condense on the material being welded. This can affect the weld properties significantly. Georgia Gascoyne, CEO for HFT® sai ...

Pipe Purging Monitor

What is Weld Purging? Weld Purging is the displacement of oxygen by an inert gas (usually argon) from the vicinity of a weld, before, during and after welding. It is crucial to displace the oxygen when welding many metals to help achieve oxide free, zero colour welds with no loss of corrosion resis ...

Reliable Oxygen Analyzer for Welding Titanium

When welding titanium, it is essential that the oxygen level surrounding the weld is purged down to as low as 50 ppm. Measuring the oxygen level with a reliable oxygen analyzer is the most efficient way to know exactly when to commence welding. Specifically designed for Purge Chamber welding, the ...
