The Pipestoppers® Division at Huntingdon Fusion Techniques (HFT®) have come up with yet another innovative solution for weld purging needs.
The UK-based manufacturer is offering its range of white Nylon Weld Purge PlugsTM that are designed for weld purging of tubes and pipes up to 6 inches in diameter.
Georgia Gascoyne, CEO of HFT, further explained, “They are manufactured with a standard seal made from natural rubber and for special applications seals made of silicone, nitrile and viton rubbers are available.”
According to HFT, these plugs service a wide variety of industrial applications and provide a strong barrier in pipeline activities to prevent oxidation whilst welding.
The plugs are available individually or come in kits aimed to suit domestic plumbers and spa maintenance teams. They can be supplied with an outside British standard pipe (BSP) thread for screwing on a standard hose connection, or solid shaft versions of up to 1.5 inches in diameter for pressure testing.
