The O.D. GripTight® uses EST’s proven GripTight self-gripping, self-sealing feature in combination with a dual seal mechanism to provide unparalleled speed and safety in hydro-testing. Conventional hydro-testing plugs grip and seal along the I.D. of the pipe or tube. EST’s O.D. GripTight design grips and seals along the pipe O.D. Since pipe O.D.’s are constant one O.D. plug often replaces several different sizes of I.D. sealing plugs providing an economic advantage and lower inventory.
The O.D. GripTight has proven to be so simple to operate and maintain that it has been adopted by the U.S. Navy as a primary component in their new Damage Control product named the Pipe Jumper Hose System (PJHS).
