Economy Test Plugs

Economy Low Pressure Test Plugs allow reliable hydro testing of pipe and tube and are available for sizes raning 3/8″ to 4″

  • Pressures to 35 psi (2.4 Bar). Pressure rating reduces as plug size increases
  • Sizes for 3/8″ to 4″ (9.5mm – 101.6mm) Pipe and Tube I.D.

Economy Low Pressure Test Plugs are designed for simple, reliable testing of pipe and tubing, without the tube wall damage associated with other test plugs.

Description

Economy Plugs feature a neoprene seal – the only part of the plug that comes in contact with the tube I.D. Simply install the Economy Test Plug into the open end of a pipe or tube. Tighten the wing nut (2″ to 4″ sizes use a hex nut) to expand the seal. Begin pressure testing.

*Note: Maximum operating pressures have been determined by testing performed in clean, dry commercial grade carbon steel pipe.
