Product Description

Isolate & test sections of piping without the need for flanges! The standard plugs can be used for test pressures up to 3,000 PSIG, in line sizes from 1/2" to 24" and schedules 40 or 80 pipe. This test plug is held in place as the steel threads grip tight with neoprene seals - all by tightening one compression nut!

High-pressure pipe testing is safer than ever before, thanks to USA Industries' GripType High-Pressure Test Plug. Unlike other plugs that can loosen and eject under high pressure - even becoming dangerous projectiles - the GripType Test Plug actually uses test pressure to seal more securely against the pipe's inner diameter. The greater the pressure - the tighter the grip! The result is safer installation, better sealing and all around safer testing.

GripType Test Plug benefits include:

Fast, Easy, Safe Testing:
Eliminates costly, time consuming practice of welding end caps. Plugs install quickly and are reusable.
High Pressure Performance:
Our plugs grip tight, meaning operating pressures are limited by the strength of your pipe, not our test plug.
Engineered Seal Design:
Reduces seal wear for long-lasting performance.
Superior Plug Design:
Positional washer prevents plug loss & eliminates plug lock-up after hydrotest, common with inferior designs.
Simple Maintenance:
Replacement seals and grippers are readily available and easy to replace.
Quality Assurance Standard:
Manufactured under a Quality Assurance Program certified to ISO 9001
Industry-Leading Turnaround Time:
1/2" to 24" in Sch 40 and 80 (DN15 to DN600) sizes typically in stock for same day shipment.

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.
