INFLATABLE STOPPERS AID PIPELINE MAINTENANCE AND LEAK TESTING

The latest range of rapidly installed Pronal inflatable pipeline stoppers from Air Springs Supply will improve safety and save time in a range of common maintenance and testing tasks. The OPL and OPLT pipe plugs are designed for easy portability and perfect sealing of water, sewage, hydrocarbon and chemical process pipelines.

Made of high quality vulcanised rubber for enhanced quality and durability in aggressive environments, the stoppers can be used to seal a wide variety of pipes, including steel, plastic and concrete with diameters from 30 to 2000mm.

Weighing from 200g to 145kg for the biggest model with bypass – the plugs are easily transported to remote infrastructure and construction sites.

James Maslin, Technical Product Manager for Air Springs Supply explains: “Rather than installing valves to shut down sections of pipelines, the stoppers are introduced and inflated to stop pipe flow during maintenance or to seal newly installed pipes for air-tightness tests.”

OPL and OPLT stoppers are the latest additions to Air Springs Supply’s ranges of Pronal products, which include lifting cushions and elastomer products used in demanding applications by major construction, infrastructure and utility industries, militaries, civil defence, emergency and recue organisations, oil and gas producers and ports.

“Wherever outstanding quality and durability are required for reliability and safety, Pronal products are trusted to deliver outstanding results. Their latest OPL and OPLT stoppers complement a comprehensive range of sealing products, including stoppers custom-engineers to prevent environmental spills,” adds Maslin.
