Product Description

USA Industries' flange weld test plug enables you to monitor conditions upstream of the seal, isolate and purge the weld area, complete the weld and hydrotest to code requirements with one tool, which saves you time and expense. The flange weld test plug, or FTP for short, has a high-lift seal that can expand. This key feature allows you to benefit from a greater seal-to-pipe clearance, making it easy to move past the weld and eliminate the need to grind out excess root penetration.

USA Industries' flange weld test plugs are designed for fast, simple installation. Simply insert the plug into the pipe to be welded, bolt the flanges together and tighten the large compression nut(s) to expand the seal.

The weld area is completely isolated, so there is no need to fill the entire line or vessel, virtually eliminating your hazardous waste disposal costs. A complete test requires a minimal amount of water - from a few cups to a few gallons, depending on the line size. Flange Weld Test Plugs reduce the cost, downtime delays, and wastewater disposal associated with conventional flange testing. Now you can test without line blinds, vacuum trucks or dehydration services. With reduced NDE, water usage and environmental waste, this simple test plug saves you time and money every time you use it.

Don't miss this opportunity to reduce the expense, downtime delays, and waste disposal problems associated with conventional flange-to-pipe weld testing. USA Industries' Flange Weld Test Plug lets you monitor downstream conditions, isolate and purge the weld area, perform the weld, and hydrotest weld joint to ANSI B16.5 requirements using only one tool. (One customer reported that it pays for itself one-quarter of the way through the first use!)

A SPECIAL WORD OF CAUTION: Pressure testing can be an extremely hazardous operation and safety precautions should be strictly adhered to. All connections, valves, flanges and other fittings should be checked for suitability to test pressure. Verify the line ID & Plug Range match. Most importantly - Never stand or pass in front of any test plug or other enclosure while test is in progress. If plug discharges during a test, serious injury or death could occur.
