Description

Most sizes afford easy placement by one man. Flexibility allows Multi-Size plugs to navigate through small hot tap or branch pipe into large pipeline; then inflate with air or water.

Typically used for plugging or testing of pipelines especially when there is small-restricted access. The Light duty Multi-size plug is the most flexible plug on the market; it has the greatest multi-size range and will conform to almost any pipe configuration. The small-deflated diameter and flexibility allows insertion and removal through a manhole for plugging otherwise inaccessible pipelines.  No shelf rot like rubber plugs.
