Huntingdon Fusion Techniques introduced a range of inflatable pipestoppers for tubes, pipes, pipework fabrications and ductwork. These inflatable pipestoppers provide a strong barrier in pipeline maintenance activities, and prevent foreign bodies entering the line during down time.
In machining applications, they can be inserted below a horizontal flange on a vertical pipe, to prevent machining fluid from falling below into expensive machinery such as pumps and turbines etc.
When welding large tanks and vessels, stoppers inflated with air can dramatically reduce the volume inside, so that the argon purging process takes little time and uses the minimum of expensive gas
Other applications include leak testing of pipework systems, whether commercial, domestic or industrial, on site thermoforming of bends in plastic materials and fiber-optic constructions projects.
All Inflatable Stoppers are manufactured with a strong internal inflatable bag covered in waterproof sewn polyurethane coated nylon for low friction and to prevent the production of static electricity or accidental sparking.
These inflatable pipestoppers are available in cylindrical or spherical formats with sizes ranging from 1 to 96” (25 to 2440 mm).
A range rubber inflatable stoppers that are suitable for petrochemical applications and are resistant to all hydrocarbon fluids and gases are also available.
