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.
