Rubber Sealing Test Plugs
- A round, knurled
cap for hand-tight sealing.
- Captive cap.
- The plugs rubber

- Tried and tested
for over twenty years.
test plugs- the professionals choice.
- Very practical, conserves
energy, sold worldwide.
- The test plug is screwed
into a BSP welded socket or a threaded boss, threaded pipe tee, valve or vessel.
And Easy To Use
- Unscrew captive cap,
push the pressure gauge/manometer or thermometer probe through the test plug,
take your reading, remove probe and replace cap.
- Obtain pressure and temperature
readings, determine flow rate. Plugs can also be used to inject fluids into
- Test plugs are extremely
economical. The price of two brass test plugs is generally cheaper than a
gauge cock, or pressure gauge.
For Heating Installations
For Chilled Water Installations
For Process Services
of flow rate two test plugs are used, one on each side of an orifice, calibrated
valve or an item of equipment of known pressure loss/flow characteristics.
Pressure differential is used to determine flow rate.
- In any system of pipe-work
requiring to be balanced or regulated it is essential to be able to readily
determine (a) Temperature (b) Flow rate
- Test plugs incorporated
at strategic points in the piping system are a quick and economical method
of obtaining such data.
- As direct contact is
made with the liquid or gas in the system and if the correct gauge or thermometer
is used, a greater accuracy is given. Our non-mechanical test plugs do not
rely on springs and will not scale up.
- Because of the small
size and low cost of test plugs, they can be fitted virtually anywhere in
the system where pressure or temperature measurement may be required, giving
the commissioning engineer new methods for balancing and commissioning with
greater accuracy and with real saving in site time.
- Permanent pressure gauges
and thermometers in pipework are traditionally, restricted to where they would
be visually acceptable rather than most useful.
- Test plugs can be fitted
in restricted piping. However they must be positioned to enable probes to
be used to take readings.
- A test plug fitted close
to an instrument can also be used to check on the accuracy.
test plugs comply with C.I.B.S.E code W 1994 water distribution systems (D.O.E.
M&E 100). Standard Specification for low temperature hot water.
- Recommended by the National
Engineering Specification Limited Y11 Pipeline Ancillaries and BS7350 1990.
