For best results with sealing tubes without damaging tubesheets, please be sure to use the correct size tube plugs (based on tube O.D. and gauge using our chart below). When ordering tube plugs, please keep in mind that the tube plug and the tube metal should always match. Please contact us if you have any questions about our tube plugs or if you require more information.

A SPECIAL WORD OF CAUTION: USA Industries highly recommends you use our One Rev Internal Tube Cutter to puncture the tube before installing any plug to ensure that pressure cannot build up in the tube and cause the plugs to loosen or blow out.
