A blocking plug is specifically made for the singular task of sealing pipes and doesn’t have a bypass. On the other hand, the bypass plug features a bypass tube that allows users to redirect effluent through it. With the addition of an adapter cap, it can be easily converted for air testing. Bypass plugs are versatile and can also be used for blocking pipes.
How to choose the right plug size:
Begin by identifying the inner diameter (ID) of the pipe requiring plugging and select a plug that corresponds to the pipe’s ID for the specific task. The plug should only be used when the pipe’s size falls within the designated range of the plug.
Death, bodily injury and/or property damage could result if the plug fails for any reason. Unsafe practices can also result in death or severe injury.
Never exceed the plug’s back pressure rating. Maximum back pressure ratings listed are for plugs installed in clean, dry pipe of nominal size. Usage of plugs in pipeline that varies from these conditions could reduce maximum allowable back pressure.
